Watch the First Installment of P.A.M's 'Rug Trip' Travel Series

“A travel series exploring the communicative nature of carpets.”

By //Design

Back in October last year it was announced that Misha Hollenbach — one half of Melbourne-based label P.A.M. — would debut a new series at the launch of Spazio Maiocchi, the new Milan art space from Carhartt WIP and Slam Jam. Named Rug Trip, the series is described as “a travel series exploring the communicative nature of carpets” and sees P.A.M. travel around the world investigating the making of a rug.

The first installment — which you can watch above — sees Hollenbach trek through the High Atlas mountain range in Morocco before contributing sketches, alongside a series of other artists, which are then transformed into carpets by local Berber women. This area of Morocco is known for the qualities of its rugs and the highly-skilled artisans who live there.

Speaking to Intelligence about the series, Hollenbach revealed the reason for focusing on rugs. “I love interiors. Carpets are a major player in room decoration. The Carpet also transcends function and decoration; they have a fascinating presence as a cultural object, often having stories, information and spirituality woven in.” Hollenbach also went on to discuss what to expect from future Rug Trip installments: “Next up it [is] likely to be Sardinia to investigate the weaving techniques there. Then Indian and Nepal.”
