Fleche Rugs by Samare


Showing at the Milan does Beirut exhibition in Milan last week were seven designers and design brands launching new work under the banner of the Carwan Gallery, which opens shortly in Beirut.

Highlights include Montreal and Milan-based design studio Samare’s new geometric felted-wool rugs, made in collaboration with Belgian textile designers and speciaity rugmakers Antonin Bachet and Linda Topic.

The rugs are the latest addition to Samare’s ongoing Pays d’en Haut Legacy series, which investigates and then reinterprets the vernacular forms and decorative motifs of Canada’s upper country. Native to Quebec, the technique of the fleche is a method of braiding pieces of dyed wool into motifs or arrows or lightning bolts.
