Classic floral ornaments combined with contemporary aesthetics: we were inspired by the flowery pattern of French tapestry rugs when creating this hand-knotted Tapis.
We have modified and reduced the traditional ornaments and, in particular, we have completely rearranged the colors. The result is a fusion of traditional rug design and modern European aesthetics. We try to cater to the trends of European interior design with our Tapis Design and, in doing so, we playfully go around the guidelines of traditional rug knotting.
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 luxuriant flower motifs of this Tapis are elegant and varied. The graceful vegetative symbols representing flowers, leaves and branches are artfully intertwined.
The repeating elements in the center field of this Tapis rug have no specific center (so-called repeating pattern). The repeating pattern has a calming but not boring effect. Rugs with repeating patterns are also called patterned.
The background of this Tapis is gray.
The pile of this Tapis has been hand-knotted from high-quality virgin wool. Virgin wool is obtained through the gentle shearing of sheep. Virgin wool is a sustainable, natural raw material with a number of impressive properties; due to the wool's natural fat content, the surface repels water droplets and is thus naturally impervious to dirt. Wool also offers excellent thermal insulation, has a regulating effect on living climate and muffles sound. The weft and warp threads of this Tapis are made of cotton. This versatile material is tear-resistant and stretchable and, therefore, ideal for a durable backing fabric.
