Handmade wool rug with floral pattern
Area rugs are entirely hand made. These rugs are produced with New Zealand wool; some of them can also be produced using Royal silk yarns of the highest quality instead or with the wool. After the yarn is hand tufted to the rug’s weft, the artisan begins the intricate and highly precise process of cutting and shaping with shears in order to create the complex patterns that are the defining aesthetic feature of these rugs. Precious and long lasting, the Area rugs are available in several hues, also in custom dimensions. The resistance to light and to the recommended cleaning method, the quality and the density of the yarns guarantee that the designs hold their shape over time and ensure that Area rugs will retain their body and luster over many years. For these reasons, the Area rugs are suited also to high traffic areas. The variety of designs and colours allows for the creation of tailor-made rugs; for special rugs, the Company provides a computer rendering of the rug in reduced scale, to verify the overall chromatic effect and the final result.
Dalia is a hand tufted rug. The floral patterns which decorate this rug are chiselled by hand on the wool background. The outline of the design is of silk and is lighter and deeper than the background field. The designs and the background are dyed in the same colour; considering that silk dying always results in lighter tones, this creates a tone-on-tone effect. Only one colour can be chosen.
