If carpets could fly, we'd like to think that they would look like Oyyo’s recently launched collection of six cotton dhurries, which are Swedish by design, Indian by make, and nomadic by feel. If you could take one for a spin, where would you go? Above: Oyyo founders Lina Zedig and Marcus Åhrén are based in Stockholm. Above: Oyyo's dhurries are made of 100 percent organic cotton and handwoven by a community of craftspeople in Jodhpur, India. Above: A detail of a cotton dhurrie in Brick Pastel ; see Oyyo for more information. Above: The colors of the dhurries come from vivid vegetable dyes derived from local plants. Above: A detail of a cotton dhurrie in Noto ; see Oyyo for more information. Above: Oyyo dhurries are woven with techniques dating back centuries but with a contemporary design and color palette. Above: A detail of a cotton dhurrie in Never Ending Story ; see Oyyo for more information. Above: The Oyyo studio in Stockholm exhibits a nomadic approach to design, exploring the convergence of cultures, design, and fine craftsmanship.
