Handmade custom wool rug
The Mamlin Collection is the implementation of a long-term idea: Already about ten years ago, artists and Mischioff designer Dani Misio created a series of colored stripes paintings in oil on canvas and exhibited them in a well-known Zurich art gallery. The idea to transfer this artistic gradients to a modern and decorative rug collection has been long and hard work - until they could finally be brought to carpet this year.
The precise implementation of the predefined gradients, consisting of about ten to twelve different colors, requires a careful handcraft and a lot of experience. All steps are made entirely by hand in a modern Mischioff manufactory in Nepal; for a rug in the size of 300 x 230 centimeters three workers are weaving about 10-12 weeks, an additional month is necessary for finishing.
As an additional style element, the Mamlin Collection has got slightly different pile heights, which provides a particular structure of the rugs. In the background lays a solid-coloured, woolen line, which slightly breaks the design of the rugs. A few millimeters above, the silk line shows the actual design of the coloured stripes. The pure silk provides a very elegant appearance and a pleasant soft pile of the Mamlin.
The Mamlin Collection currently shows eleven decorative and varied color compositions. As a world premiere, Mischioff presented the Mamlin Collection on the IMM Cologne 2016 to the international audience. One piece of the Mamlin Collection was part of the “Furnishing Cologne” campaign, which presents eleven selected, innovative products photograped in the city of Cologne.
