The Magic Carpet was a huge collaboration and the final project we completed in Bali. We asked Kadek to explore and play with various patterns that are seen on offering baskets. We didn’t give much direction, just the size and typography. It took repeated visits and great negotiation to convince Kadek to take on our commissions, her reluctance stemming from a fear of failure. We were privileged to have the crafters step outside of their daily routine and truly experiment, as it is extremely uncommon.
