Global Beat

The Kahlo Sapphire Rug (https://www.capelrugs.com/products/Shop/Rugs-by-Construction/Flat-Woven-Rugs/Kahlo-Sapphire) by Genevieve Gorder’s Kahlo Sapphire rug is a globally-inspired piece that shows a clear African influence. The shapes, patterns and symbols are African in nature, and reminiscent of pieces found in Mali. The deep blue shade is an homage to indigo dying. However, the overall design can also relate to a Mexican sarape. It’s a beautiful blend of global influences that is reflective of many of the most modern home decor that expresses traditional African pattern design.
