The Lattice collection springs from the organic imagination of the Bouroullec brothers. The basic pattern, rhythmically reproduced, gives rise to a harmonic succession of colors. Balance, proportion and irregularity are the key elements in the controlled disorder that transforms Lattice into a unique creation.
"Rugs are commonly designed as a surface on which a pattern is distributed. However in the case of Lattice, the pattern is defined as a constructive system to generate the form of the rug itself. The system of colored bands, in which pattern, form and color are linked in an intimate manner, creates a different scope." - Explain Bouroullec.
Originating from Afghanistan's native sheep, this wool's fiber, called Ghazni, is famous for reaching 30cm long. This exceptional length and its slightly undulating and thin structure provides a high resistance and special softness. Like the other wools, it is an elastic fibre that ages well, which combined with its beauty makes it ideal for weaving carpets.
Kilim is a technique which uses a manual loom to create fabrics which mix bright sections of color. Knotted by hand, this process produces flat rugs with irregularities caused by the manual twisting of the wool thread. It is characterized by geometric motifs.
