Throwing themselves further into traditional Indian weaving techniques and textile production while fine-tuning their process of vegetable-dying yarn, Swedish duo Oyyo‘s second collection of cotton dhurrie rugs is even more breathtaking than the first. A collection of six colourful, geometric designs, handwoven by a community of craftspeople in the desert area of Rajasthan, India, N ̊2 integrates untreated linen warp into the construction, a nod to traditional Swedish flat weave. Aiming to create more of a contrast in their designs, Oyyo’s expanded palette includes richer and darker colors alongside muted pastel tones, and is all produced from natural pigments derived from local plants. The N ̊2 collection is available from €550-€2,590 depending on design and size through Oyyo’s beautiful online store: www.oyyo.se
