San D come from the Chinese word for Three Dimensional. Where San means three as each of the designs is compared of three layers. And D represents dimension. When pronounced Di it also refers for the Chinese word for floor: Dimian and carpet: Ditan.
The design plays whit this idea by merging multiple layers in to one. The effect is emphasised through a subtle play in color gradients. These are designed carefully to emphasise the three dimensional effect. Color tones fade from light to dark and are placed in relation to the graphic image of the rug.
Here the fringes are placed inside the frame of the carpet complimenting the idea of rugs superimposed on each other.
The collection is composed by three different shapes: Circle, Square and Rectangle.
