It's hard to go wrong with maps and textiles, but these carpets from thenoughtcollective's Where are We Going? collection are particularly fantastic. The area rugs are handcrafted in Nepal and India using traditional methods and are GoodWeave certified. (GoodWeave works to end illegal child labor in the carpet industry and to offer educational opportunities to children in South Asia.) Master artisans use only indigenous wool, silk, cashmere, and mohair in four colors - chalk, graphite, ash, and charcoal.
Beijing, graphite in wool, silk, and cashmere
Bagdhad, chalk in wool, silk, and cashmere
"Inspired by the great cities of the past, present, and future, Where are We Going? explores the geometry created by peoples and cultures as they gather, organize and connect to each other and the natural environment." (more)
