formosa rug

Design Michael Lin
100% New Zealand wool, hand knotted
Handmade by Nanimarquina

Created by the versatile and authentic artist Michael Lin, Formosa evokes the name 16th-century Portuguese sailors gave to the island of Taiwan. The rug's delicate and attractive style combines Pop aesthetics with Taiwanese pictorial tradition. Following this tradition, it took three years of meticulous work to reproduce the subtle use of color on wool that is characteristic of Lin, who specializes in transforming large, cold and bland spaces into luminous organic fields of intense shades. The type of knot used to manufacture this rug makes it 40% denser than other hand knotted rugs, and consequently, it has more weight and better quality. Pure harmony, in red or blue.

The weaving technique used in this collection is the vertical handloom technique. The thread is tightly fastened to the warp by a knot. The type and thickness of the knot differentiate the various kinds of hand-knotted rugs; the greater the number of knots, the greater the definition, durability and value of the rug. This technique allows for the creation of highly-detailed patterns.

Wool from New Zealand sheep is a natural, sustainable and biodegradable fiber. This beautiful wool is hypoallergenic, it is easy to care for, ages well and holds its color. It also minimized noise levels, while it creates a relaxing and comfortable environment.
