The hand-knotted wool shaggy rug, Shogi, is one of the three rug designs created in collaboration between Åsa Pärson and Anno. The collection was inspired by Åsa's passion for Japanese aesthetics, especially her visits to the Tofuku-Ji garden in Kyoto which has been her source for inspiration for a long time. The fine undyed wool makes the smooth and dense surface even softer. Shogi comes in two sizes - 70x140cm and 200x300cm.
Wool is naturally antistatic and dirt-resistant which makes it a perfect material for rugs.
A wool rug does not absorb humidity so it feels warm and cozy even in humid spaces.
Using undyed sheep's wool as a material saves a lot of water in the production process. Please notice that natural white wool rug is never optical white, it is always slightly yellowish. Wool, as well as all new natural materials, have their own particular odour which gradually disappears after time and use.
