The Meteorito collection encompasses 10 different rugs with designs ranging from complex patterns to compositions cracked like mosaics.
“The inspiration for this collection is the urban landscape,” said the textile designer. “It is the reflections of artificial lights on an empty city at 4am.”
Balmaceda frequently travels to India and Nepal, and blends both countries’ stylistic traditions with his own Mexican heritage to create rugs with a “multicultural tone”.
His workshop collaborates closely with local weavers throughout the rug-making process, with the aim of promoting the wellbeing of the artisans and their communities.
The Meteorito rugs are available in three sizes and hand-knotted in Nepal from a combination of wool, bamboo silk and metallic fibres such as lurex.
