Frances Van Hasselt
Pure mohair rug by Frances van Hasselt, handcrafted in the Karoo. Raised on a mohair farm, van Hasselt has a deep affinity for mohair - her designs and sustainable processes are informed by the slow, natural rhythm of her desert environment. Van Hasselt collaborates with local women artisans in rural communities to weave the rugs; each is slightly unique in weave and yarn.
This rug is 4 x 6 feet. Custom dimensions are available at $68 per sq. foot.

Do not use warm water or steam-clean as heat may cause the colours to run. Loose fibres are common in handmade carpets and may be carefully trimmed using scissors. Carpets are hand-dyed and colours may fade over time due to sunlight exposure. The carpets are reversible and it is advisable to turn them over ever so often.
