White and Black. Inspired by nature and science
Back to the roots
The central elements of the Islets are sculptural gypseous miniatures. If these relief rugs are spread out on the floor in a room, they become like little islands with a pebble beach. That's why all the art rugs I made are called Pebble Islets. My family, friends and customers place the islets on their way and walk on the "pebble" surface barefoot like the inhabitants of wild tropical islands :) It’s unfortunate to think that, more often than not, our carefree moments barefoot are isolated to either early childhood or rare moments on a beach. What’s important to note is that, going barefoot on "pebbles" isn’t just a momentary pleasure. The relief surface of a special shape with an expressed level difference is also healthy for all family members: children, parents and grandparents. You've probably heard that the barefoot primitive islanders have healthy legs and their bodies are nimble. Read the findings of the researchers on this subject in the article "Why do modern people need a new standard of a walking surface at home?"
A new trend in interior decorating
Look at the Isle of Nimble Feet as a great way to enhance the decor of your home. Each miniature on the rug is painted by hand and covered with non toxic waterborne finish. Each one is unique. The surface of the "pebbles" is smooth. That's why these miniatures encourage bare feet to touch the hilly surface and snuggle into the rug. Many people describe the sensation of stepping on the rugs like a foot massage.
The room Isles can be ordered in two sizes: large and small. The size of the large isle: 85 x 47 cm ~ 33 15/32 x 18 1/2 in; the size of the small isle: 47x47 cm ~ 18 1/2 x 18 1/2 in. Weight: 3.3 kg ~ 7.3 lb or 1.7 kg ~ 3.8 lb. Materials: natural burlap or linen fabric, gypsum, non toxic paints, non toxic waterborne finish.
You can group any number of large and small isles to create an incredible walking area. The Isles also are adapted for hanging on a wall. The Isles can be the centerpiece of your room or you can use them to compliment the rest of the home decor.
