Created through a combination of manually and mechanically spun yarns, Bold represents a union of past and present with its fusion of techniques and subtle irregularity. Welcoming two new variations of the design, Bold Block and Bold Melange, along with a new palette of ranging from turmeric to an earthy brick red, Bold continues to define warmth and tactility which according to Hella Jongerius are “the most important and best known characteristics of a rug.” Distinct and recognisable thanks to its distinct process of twisting, then hand-dyeing yarns so that the colour never completely penetrates the core of the yarn, Bold is an assured presence in any space.

The Bold Block rug is only available in rectangular or square format.
In all cases, the order unit is the square decimeter (10 x 10 cm).
For example, if you want a rectangular rug of 120 x 130 cm, order 12 x 13 = 156 square decimetres.
