Lietuva Linen Area Rug
The WHYNOT! design team created the Lietuva carpet after being inspired by the Lithuanian identity – its ancient traditions, its colors, clothing and handicraft. Lietuva is available in different colors which define the Lithuanian nature: the blues of the lakes and winter frost; the light grey reflecting the sky; the greens of its woods contrasting with wild sand dunes. A reflection of Lithuania is portrayed in the Lietuva carpet.

One of the unique Lithuanian craft elements is the colorful woven stripe that was once used in the national costumes. Different yarns are interwoven to create geometric patterns, while the stylized flowers end in elegant color combinations. In the Lietuva carpet, these artistic symbols from the past are used in conjunction with modern linen craftwork, exhibiting a contemporary touch of the Lithuanian spirit.
