melange zoom rug
Mélange is the perfect combination of tradition and modernity, fashion and home, craft and design, past and future. The collection composed by 20 models symbolizes a blending of marked contradictions that work together, acting as complements. Thanks to the simplification of classic motifs such as geometric patterns and a paired color palette, the Mélange is a contemporary version of the Kilim. An exercise in aesthetic rationalization that upholds the ancestral handcrafted techniques of Pakistan.
Combining coordinated poufs add a touch on the atmosphere that refers directly to the oriental culture in which everything is done almost at ground level. A giant patchwork effect is achieved by overlaying the Mélange rugs, perfect for decorative purposes and warmth.
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.
