The Omikuji Carpet is inspired by Japanese (Shinto) prayer notes. Omikuji's are small paper notes on which you write down your personal wishes and prayers. The paper note is then folded and tied onto a string. Inspired by the process of collecting prayers we created a carpet in felt by tying 1764 wishes together.
For the Omikuji carpet our aim has been to use as much scrap felt as possible left over from production lines. These are materials that would otherwise end up in the bin. The carpet is hand tied and the material is a Polyester/Wool mix which makes a durable carpet.
