Tricot by aforestdesign

I came across Portuguese clothing line aforestdesign while still living in Lisbon and was really impressed by their range, in particular their casual wear that employed a pattern reminiscent of cable knitting, but that pattern was usually printed or sewn on, not knitted - see an image of their 'flat knitted' limited edition sweater below. Just before Christmas aforestdesign teamed up with Portuguese textiles company Piodão to create the Tricot rug, a rug employing that same cable-knit style, but this time in hand tufted New Zealand wool. The result is great: a simple but beautifully-textured rug that brings some sartorial style into your home :)
