Brooklyn-based bag designer Brit Kleinman of new studio AVO has launched a collection of soft leather rugs hand painted with bold graphic patterns. AVO’s new Painted Plains Collection uses cowhides and bold graphics to create a modern juxtaposition between material and pattern. The designer was inspired by her travels around the world as well as daily adventures and tried to reflect those impressions in her works. Every rug is hand painted in Brooklyn using water-based stains with high penetration and dyeing power. Formulated with natural and synthetic waxes, the stain will never bleed or rub off. The rugs are fully protected from wear and tear with a durable clear top coat and fitted with an industrial anti-slip fabric, ensuring they will stay in place on the floor.
