My design for a Gallery Nucleus exhibition in LA featuring traditional Nepalese handmade rugs. The rugs are made by the wonderful Made By Node, based in Nepal and are made in conjunction with Fair Trade Nepal. Employees are taught literacy and skills. In addition to fair wages their work supports a school of 260 children and an orphanage of nineteen.

I am so pleased and honoured to have been asked to design a rug to be made by such talented people.

The images here range from the original rug design, the colour reference image and photos of the actual finished rug.

Thank you to Gallery Nucleus for organising this great event.

Tommorow there is an awesome opening at @gallerynucleus featuring hand made fair trade rugs by #madebynode. My rug design and 3 new pieces will be included. All of the artists involved are so rad and I’m totally stoked to be part of this show. 💖
