Baobab Rugs

The Baobab Rug range uses altered woven loop pile heights, yarn thickness and densities to create a deep relief effect. Bringing depth to the organic design, the pronounced effect is distinct and apparent at every angle. Baobab is the tree symbol of Senegal, which its inhabitants believe has magical powers. The spirits of ancestors are thought to live in the trunks of these gigantic trees and Louis de Poortere’s design is inspired by the bark. Baobab perpetuates the tree’s magical spirit across a palette of rich colours blue, copper, gold and beige.
