CarpetVista, the largest hand-knotted carpet online shop, is providing an opportunity for designers and artists worldwide to design new textile art to be produced on a carpet in a limited edition.
Depending on the motifs the materials are selected, it will be either entirely of wool or with a warp of cotton and a pile of wool. Elements of silk in the pile may also occur.
The carpet should have a modern feeling and you are welcome to provide designs in different colour combinations. The motif should not to be too detailed. The size and shape (round, squared, rectangular etc.) may vary depending on the design. The design should suit a carpet that measures up to 2x3 metres.
The competition has two phases. The finalists are picked by an experienced jury that has expertise in textiles, art, design and carpet production. The jury’s verdict is final and cannot be appealed. The designs that make it to the final will be displayed on CarpetVista and CarpetVista’s visitors will cast their vote to select the winner.
The design that you submit must not infringe on anybody’s intellectual property rights and it must not have been used in previous production.
There is no entry fee.
