black and white collection manuscrit rug
There is always a reason to create, to laugh and to re-awaken. Faced with the challenge of the paper, several authors embody its essence on designer rugs. A graphic and industrial designer, a painter, a fashion designer and a writer and gallerist sign each of these designs, in which very personal visions of contemporary rugs, are evident. All with a common bond: the choice of the absence of color, black and white pair to intensify their identity. A dichotomy. A canvas horizontally. A work of art underfoot.
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.
Hand tufting is a manual weaving process that uses a pistol-shaped contraption. The rug's design is made over a taut cotton fabric and weaved with a tufting gun, which pushes and cuts sections of wool thread that are fastened to the base with a layer of latex.

In 1991, Joaquim Ruiz Millet started a novel that he would finish five years later. During his work's gestation period, a page of the unpublished manuscript gave rise to a series of objects, such as this rug, with spindly characters that move the work plane from hands to feet. Expanding it, the original becomes the abstract.
The Manuscrit rug is handmade & hand tufted using 100% New Zealand wool. Custom sizes available on request.
