Interview with London Accessory Week exhibitor Likamee | London Accessory Week by X Terrace

We create hand-felted woolen art rugs. Rugs are created from sheep breed Pramenka that is autochthonous to these parts of Europe. 

Could you tell us a bit about your products? 

We create hand-felted woolen art rugs. Rugs are created from sheep breed Pramenka that is autochthonous to these parts of Europe. The wool from Pramenka is not as soft as Merino so not perfect for making garments but perfect for making carpets as it fits perfectly and gives a sensation of pure joy when stepped on with bare feet. Carpets are made with felting needles in a way that needles are being pressed through the wool layers against the sponge that works as a fixing ground for the final product. In other words you take the hand tool which is in fact a bunch of felting needles fastened to a piece of wood and hit the sponge thousands and thousands of times until you get the final product, which sometimes takes weeks to finish from start to an end.

How much time does it take to finish one rug? 

This question never gets a straightforward answer yet something more like an essay. Since we prepare wool from initial form when the wool is greasy and dirty up until we make it into clean fluffy, thin layers. The thing is we make it in batches, not for a one single product so it is impossible to estimate if it takes a week or a month. 

What is your motto?

Imperfectly perfect art rugs – this is our main motto. Products are made from natural material, made with hands only so it is only natural to expect unique products. Creating something with hands makes products impossible to replicate. They are a little bit uneven, asymmetrical and for that reason exactly: imperfectly perfect. 

What skills are necessary to be a successful creator?

Endless desire to learn and upgrade as an artist or a creator, heaps of love invested in your work, and courage to stick even when it's rough. Skills are to be learnt but to grow as a person is a choice you have to make on your own. 

What is a piece of advice you give your clients?

Be bold with furnishing items. If you like vivid color but don’t think it would fit with other items you already own, change the point of view and see if it's more important to fit or to make you happy.

Do you have a favourite design from your collection? 

Perfect Star is one of my favourite designs. First and foremost it is a star with 6 arms, then it is an unexpected shape of a rug, further on orange-pink-white is my favourite colour combination. Once we decided to make something big, we didn’t even think it would be as big as it came out to be. Also, when I picked orange and pink as colours I had no idea in which direction I was going pattern-wise, but the hand was just leading me and I followed. As I was pinning those fluffy layers of coloured wool the design of a pattern just slowly developed in front of my eyes and very soon I could see it so clearly in my head. Once it was finished, I just sat down and looked at it in amazement. I loved it and still do as much as I loved it the first day.
