Princess Margarita de Bourbon de Parme and ICE International launch the GRADIENT LILY rug
After a successful collaboration in 2012, H.R.H. Princess Margarita de Bourbon de Parme (De Parme Design) and ICE International join forces once more. After the yellow-ochre, hand-knotted Silhouet rug comes the warm-red GRADIENT LILY, a hand-tufted rug with a graphic interpretation of a lily in relief. One of its exceptional features is the material transition from 100% NZ wool on one side of the rug to 100% pure silk on the other, which provides the red hue with a gradual change in colour perception. Inspiration for the design was derived from nature, a continuous source of creativity for the princess. The lines of a lily are translated into a graphic, elegant interplay of lines in the carpet.
‘Experimenting in cooperation with ICE International is a very inspiring process. I think it’s interesting to see what is technologically feasible. The transition in material from wool to silk that I asked for was new for ICE too. It’s very interesting to take on that challenge together; my creativity combined with the curiosity and expertise of ICE International. - H.R.H. Princess Margarita de Bourbon de Parme
