With his modern designs, Jan Kath is creating a completely new perspective on rugs. Guided by a bold approach to his work, Kath, who is from Bochum, combines classical elements of oriental carpets with contemporary, minimalist design.

The carpets are hand-woven in the Himalayas or in the Atlas Mountains relying on centuries-old traditions and at manufacturing sites that are often still family-run.Depending on customer specifications, there are between 60 and 300 knots for every 6.45 square centimeters . It takes three to four months to weave a 2.5 x 3 meter carpet.For the collections made in Nepal, the basic material is Tibetan highland wool, which is of the highest grade and the most robust quality available.Together with the organization STEP, Jan Kath Design is committed to creating fair working and living conditions, and does not support child labor.
