Handknitted Wool Poufs And Rugs By Christien Meindertsma

June 9th, 2011 by retail design blog

Young Dutch Designer Christien Meindertsma plays with shapes and sheep for her Flocks project. Some of her creations (besides garments) are quite impressive – handmade poufs and rugs, handknitted with giant knitting needles. The rugs are made from the wool of 18 merino sheep, each pouf from a sheep’s wool (each product has a certificate attached to it where you can find information about the sheep from which the product was made). Even if at first, the poufs weren’t colored, now she added some plants ingredients to add color to the lovely poofs. I like my floors carpet-less, but Christien’s work is truly amazing and her rugs and poufs add incredible intimacy and warmth to a room.
