Classic Collection Verona from Jan Kath
An elegant tension of the old becoming new and how timeless design eclipses both.
The Classic Collection from Jan Kath is actually rather simple in its philosophy, traditional patterns meeting contemporary color. But the results are far from simple and verge on the sublime. Taking influence from Italian wallpapers and Indian Saris, timeless repetitive patterns are made contemporary by the additions of new color interpretations and material selections to elevate the patterns from the merely decorative to truly haute couture.
The Verona is an elegant blend of woven Himalayan wool and nettle fiber with intricate floral shapes hand knotted in real Chinese silk as raised pile. The juxtaposition of the fine silk against the wool and rougher nettle fiber is at the heart of this piece. The tension of materials, the idea of old and new meeting unexpectedly, and the way this design eclipses both.
