“The intrinsic decorative urge should not be eradicated. It is one of humankind’s deep-rooted, primordial urges. Primitive people decorated their implements and cult objects with a desire to beautify and enhance…. it is a sense emanating from the urge for perfection and creative accomplishment.” Sophie Taeuber-Arp

• Technique: Handtufted.
To create this rug using the handtufted technique, we insert tufts or loops of yarn through a fabric backing using a "tufting gun". We then apply a latex layer to hold the tufts in place and sew a resistant cotton backing on. The tufting method requires a high level of expertise and artistry to reproduce intricate patterns. It is ideal for rounded shapes, as it does not need to follow the design row by row and the yarn can be added freely anywhere, thus allowing for soft curves.
• Material: New Zealand wool.
Pure New Zealand wool is a high-quality, resilient material that offers the brightest colour absorption and creates wonderfully soft rugs.
• Size: 200 x 150 cm (6.6 x 4.9 ft), 250 x 188 cm (8.2 x 6.2 ft) or 300 x 225 cm (9.8 x 7.4 ft) or contact us to request your bespoke size.
Please note that the sizes and the colours may vary within a 5% margin, due to the completely handmade process and natural materials.
