View From Above: Topography-Inspired Handmade Rugs

The view of Earth’s landscape from above, such as you see from the window of an airplane, is a truly inspiring sight. It is a sight that inspired Liz Eeuwes to create these delightful handmade rugs.

The Glasgow-based designer was inspired by aerial views of Scottish landscapes and Balinese rice paddies, an inspiration that is evident in the orderly shapes and flowing chaos, respectively.

Each rug is handmade from colorful New Zealand wool. Their exuberantly colored blocks and swirls would be perfectly at home in any room, but would be especially wonderful in a library or office with a map theme.
