Dance to your own beat.

Add the finishing touch to your living space with Yinka Ilori’s GANGAN RUG, infused with sweetness and exploding with colour.

The artwork is titled “gangan” meaning “talking drum” in Yoruba. One of Nigeria’s native instruments, the hourglass-shaped drum is a celebration of life. Embrace the joys of music and the good energy that it brings, use the rug as a shrine to celebrate and dance. Look closely to see pineapple shaped graphics in bold, clashing hues – abstract pineapple leaves create a border for the artwork and the soft yellow outline is reminiscent of the inside of a pineapple.

Individually woven by hand, this rug is intricately crafted by skilled artisans in Nepal using Tibetan wool. It is crafted using a 'hand knot' technique, a highly intricate and complex craft with thousands of individual, tightly knotted yarns making up the abstract pattern which is then carved by hand. This technique ensures both superior quality and durability. 

Please note that this rug is made to order and as it's handmade in Nepal, it will take 10-14 weeks to be produced.
