About Jan Kath
Jan Kath (1972) is one of the world’s leading textile designers. The man from the German mining town of Bochum knows like no other how to merge the classical elements from the East with modernism from the West. His fascination for hand-knotted carpets comes from his family background: two generations before him were already active in the carpet trade. Another characteristic is the use of photo-realistic motifs, which Jan Kath, together with the traditional weavers from Nepal and Tibet, further perfects.
Materials and quality
Due to the use of pure materials and the manufacture by artisans, who work exclusively according to local traditions, each rug has its own unique character. The main material of all collections is Tibetan Highland wool, one of the best quality wools in the world. And other natural materials, including silk and nettle with a knot density of between 100 and 450 knots in every 6.45 square centimeters. In terms of size, format and materials, the carpets can be made according to individual wishes. Fair payment and good working conditions are a matter of course for Jan Kath. Together with the STEP label, they are fully committed to complying with strict social and ecological standards in the production of carpets.
His hand-knotted rugs are highly appreciated internationally; from the Royal Palaces in Saudi Arabia to the White House in Washington and from the suites of Hotel The Four Seasons to the villas of pop stars. Due to the modular structure of the collection, all rugs can also be combined well.
