We love these leather rugs made by Design Academy Eindhoven graduate Lio de Bruin. Armed with the Encyclopadia of Crafts, Lio set about researching traditional leather and needlework techniques. For inspiration, she looked to the richness and simplicity of ethnic textiles and decorative objects. The result is a collection of three tactile carpets made from processed sheets of leather using three different needlework techniques.

The yellow and pink design is called Colourblock, The Fringe features multicoloured strips of leather made into a knotted fringing and Plumage is a black weave, alternating shiny and matt, with leather feathers.
