Place of origin
When designing this hand-woven rug, simplicity and minimalism were particularly important to us. The result is a modern, straightforward design that fits modern interiors perfectly. Despite its cool, simple design, this rug makes every room more comfortable and cozy.
The clear, abstract design of this contemporary rug appeals especially to people who love simple, modern interior design and architecture. The design idea for this rug comes from Europe. Without being bound to the rules of traditional rug patterns, it was developed with western art and interior design style in mind. This is not a completely new innovation. The roots of European rug design can be traced back to Art Deco rugs, which were produced between the late twenties and fifties following Western specifications.
Some areas of the design have a higher pile than other parts of this rug. The patterns of modern rugs tend to be simpler and more abstract. The play with different pile heights is new and has replaced more elaborate and bold patterns. As a result of the two-dimensional highlighting of the pattern, the rug does not look boring at all. This accentuation is extraordinary and has a unique effect.
The pattern, inspired by classical oriental embellishments, gives the impression that this hand-knotted rug has a long history. The pattern looks as if it has been washed out or faded and therefore almost abstract. In fact, this Double is of course new and part of the latest generation of contemporary rug designs. It is a bridge between modern designs and interiors and classic oriental motifs. The pattern is subtle yet present.
The background of this Double is gray beige.
The pile of this rug is made from a durable mixture of high-quality wool and viscose. The virgin wool and viscose yarns were wound by hand around a backing fabric of cotton in an innovative process. This method is much less labour-intensive than traditional knotting, so it speeds up the production process and allows for lower prices. The quality and durability of hand-looped rugs is impressive in relation to their price. However, looping does not allow for complicated patterns. That is why the rug is printed with modern patterns according to our specifications after being looped.
Viscose (also viscose, acetate silk or rayon) is basically obtained from the natural product, cellulose, i.e. from the raw material of wood. In India, the cellulose mass is obtained from bamboo. In an elaborate process, the pulpy cellulose is pulled into a continuous textile yarn. This is why viscose is also known as continuous filament yarn. Because of the silky sheen of the yarn, viscose obtained from bamboo is also called "Bamboo Silk". The colloquial name "artificial silk" is not permitted under the German Textile Labelling Act (TKG).
