New to the Knots Rugs Artist Collaboration collection, Dawn is based on an original design that Paper Marbler Natascha Maksimovic created for a project where she hand crafted 3D botanical leaf sculptures. Working from her studio in Margate, Kent, Nat Maks specialises in the art form of Suminagashi Marbling which fuses traditional techniques with contemporary and expressive colour palettes. 

Experimenting with the use of non-conventional materials such as crepe paper has resulted in an added level of texture and dimension which we have interpretated with the use of Tibetan wool, Chinese silk and Linen in a 150 knot quality. The intense orange and red colouration are reminiscent of blossom and the deep forest greens represent the structure and veins in the leaves.
