Place of origin
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 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 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 Tapis 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 surface of this Tapis has a flecked effect. The color changes and light-dark shades of the pile yarn run across the length of the rug, making the colors shimmer and making the rug impervious to dirt. Because of these so-called color jumps Abrash the rug appears more lively. The flecking is the result of the wool of this Tapis being hand-spun. During dyeing, the natural dyes are absorbed differently.
The background of this Tapis is gray beige.
The pile of this Tapis is made of durable viscose. The colloquial name "artificial silk" is not permitted under the German Textile Labelling Act TKG. Viscose also acetate silk or rayon is generally obtained from the natural product, cellulose, i.e. the raw material of wood. However, in India the cellulose mass is also obtained from bamboo. In a complex 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 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.
