'Lisse', Inspired by tulip fields, by Liz Eeuwes

'Lisse', inspired by tulip fields, by Liz Eeuwes

Liz Eeuwes is a Canadian designer based in Glasgow, Scotland. Since graduating with a degree in Product Design from the Glasgow School of Art, Liz has set up a home studio in order to develop her own designs.

Her first collection is a range of artistic, textured rugs inspired initially by the rich colours and diverse structures of the Scottish countryside. Recognising the similar visual effects of rugs and aerial views of landscapes, Elizabeth began experimenting with various pile heights, hand knotting, weaving, colouring and carving techniques in order to accurately capture the look and feel of these areas.

Each rug is made entirely by hand using the finest materials and the result is a collection of high quality unique pieces that combine colour, texture and shape in a new and exciting way and are appropriate for both contemporary and traditional environments.

‘Mangas’ (engl. Sleeves) is based on a patchwork of different wool knits, to create a collection of various typologies with different shapes, going from Manga corta (short sleeve) to Manga de campana (bell-shaped sleeve). The result is a series of eight very special carpets, full of nuances, due to their variety of textures and colours.
