Glithero Botanical Rug

La Manufacture Cogolin’s Botanical Rug collection designed by Studio Glithero feature hand-knotted rugs, depicting flora that have been foraged and pressed before being composed into intricate designs. The specimen come from the designers own herbarium, a library of pressed botanicals that have been collected over several years. The botanical pattern are influenced Millefleurs tapestries of the early Renaissance. The gradient in the rugs’ background colors reference photographic techniques in particular the botanical photographs of the 19th Century botanist and photographer Anna Atkins. They emphasize the essential relationship between plant specimen and light.
