Read this article in DeutschCarpet print doesn’t sound that cool at first, at least nobody would wrap granny’s persian carpet around the shoulders and leave the house like that. But actually carpet print pieces are boho inspired clothes with an allover flower or gemetric print. I often read “Moroccan tiles pattern” – so I guess you can argue about if a pattern belongs to tiles or a carpet. I was personally looking forever for a piece with such a pattern, but I wanted one that is woven. Carpets are woven too and I think it’s beautiful when pieces resemble the pattern and also the structure.

Grunge, boho and the carpet print
I own exactly two pieces with a woven carpet print and I’ll show you both right meow. Just like when I put together my grunge meets preppy look, I couldn’t resist bringing grunge into the game. Everything looks cooler with boots and a leather jacket! Milena from Photo Gravity took my wild boho forest pics and you really need to see her dreamy fairytale photography.
Look Number 1 with leather jacket and weaving pattern dress
I love this dress because it looks so much like a Persian carpet! How cool are those flowers and cranes in warm forest colours? It’s funny that I found this at Desigual – I usually never ever buy there. I was looking for such a dress forever, so finding this was a true jackpot.

Look Number 2 with a kimono cardigan
The second piece featuring a carpet print is from Zara: It’s a kimono cardigan made of thicker fabric with large sleeves. I love this one for it’s rich forest colours. I’m actually not even a forest colours fan, even though those exactly fit my type. I only like stuff that doesn’t compliment me (bohoo). But for these two outfits I threw together whatever natural colour my wardrobe offers.
