Behind Tartaruga Studio you’ll find textile design duo Wiktoria Nowak and Jadzia Lenart, based in Łódź, Poland – a city with a long tradition in their field.
Nowak and Lenart make kilim and natural fiber carpets, sometimes using recycled materials. They create basic shapes, graphic and playful symbols, making each piece unique – and often so beautiful it ends up hanging on a wall like art. They use nontoxic dyes and work by hand, with a strong belief in “slow design”. Last but not least, they strive to reduce waste and donate 2% of their income to NGOs that fight against racism.
