I got a lovely email from Franziska Henning regarding her line of hand-knotted rugs called Reuber-Henning. The rugs are made in Nepal and are designed by Franziska, a trained painter who employs a very illustrative style to the designs which are inspired in part by 19th-century German cutouts and Japanese woodblock prints. I especially loved the Story line of rugs featuring silhouettes of children playing. The Scenery line is so delicately illustrated. Very gorgeous and graphic work here.
