Place of origin
When designing this hand-knotted rug, simplicity and minimalism were particularly important to us. The result is a modern, abstract design that fits perfectly into modern interiors. Despite its cool, simple design, this rug makes every room more cozy and comfortable.
The luxuriant flower motifs of this Terra 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 Terra 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 pile is a plain rusty red. The simple design is understated, but can also provide a great design accent. The monochrome appearance of this rug fits perfectly in any environment.
The technique used to produce the materials of the pile of this Terra is over 200 years old. The wool is dyed with natural colors and spun by hand. Dyeing with natural or vegetable dyes is more complicated, expensive and time-consuming than dyeing with chemical dyes. For a bright red, for example, you would need about one kilogram of ground madder root per kilogram of wool as dye. For a strong, not too pale yellow, you would need two kilograms of the dye madder per kilogram of wool. Also spinning wool is time-consuming and labor-intensive. In addition, fewer and fewer people are able to hand spin wool.
But the effort is worth it: By dyeing with natural dyes, the high-quality wool retains its natural fat content. Wool dyed with natural colors and spun by hand creates fascinating, iridescent patterns. The charm of hand-spun wool with its slight irregularities and natural hues unfolds as a contrasting element in modern interiors, but also in rooms that are furnished in a more traditional or country house style. The weft and warp threads of this Terra are made of cotton. This versatile material is tear-resistant and stretchable and, therefore, ideal for a durable backing fabric.
