TRIM DOWN TO THE ESSENTIALS: BEAUTIFUL, GOOD RUGS We come from two different worlds: Franziska Henning studied painting and has been designing artistic rugs for several years. (www.galerie-roehr-ripken.de) Thorsten Reuber learned something about marketing and sales in the music and new media business. Once he had caught her infectious passion for the beauty of color and material, it was only natural for them to decide to join forces and create beautiful rugs together: Reuber Henning was born. Franziska Henning calls her carpets "Poetic Images" - images that "have been inspired by a wide variety of regions, periods and moods." The designs of our first collection are partly based on German 19th-century silhouette cutouts and traditional Japanese woodcuts. Our rugs are knotted from fine Himalaya wool and Indian silk following ancient Tibetan handicraft traditions.
