Kivet meaning Rocks. Like rocks on the seashore, age-old, gone through storms, natural. We make this rug by hand with tightest possible knotting a manmade rug can be. We make quality and sustainable rugs. Our hands are strong, and wool is high quality, always local.
Colours natural and midnight blue. Kivet is designed by Matti Pikkujämsä, a Finnish illustrator and artist. Originally Kivet was launched at Matti's and Jenni Rope's exhibition BLUE in Japan. Mum's employes artisans living in rural village in Northern India. Artisans work from home, save travel cost to work and may take care of their families. Materials are local, highest quality natural or recycled.
All Mum's rugs made based on order.
Mum's employs artisans living in rural villages in Northern India, South Africa and Bolivia. We buy each and every product and agree a fair payment in collaboration with the village leader. Materials are always highest quality and local, either natural or recycled carefully chosen by thThe truth is our artisans cannot read or write, as they have never had a chance to go to school. Working for Mum's, and receiving regular income they may pay for their kids school. It is one of the things we are most proud of.
Lead time during covid is about 4-5 months. We are so sorry to keep you waiting! Rugs are made in time, but freight takes time.
*** Kivet on esitelty ensi kerran Japanissa seinävaatteena Matin ja Jenni Ropen yhteisnäyttelyssä. Maton muoto on neliö ja voimme valmistaa mattoa mihin tahansa toivekokoon. Mum'sin matot valmistetaan vastuullisesti ja tilauksesta.
