The Collection

Hand-carded wool is the ultimate in quiet luxury. Hand-carding requires skill and attention, and it creates an organic movement of color—there's no way to mimic it. In this collection, we use it in a kilim-style weave to show off the natural state of the yarn, creating textured pools of color, in the simplest, most effective way possible.

The Design

Textured and dreamily soft, like your favorite sweater, the sweater rug in oat is a creamy off-white.

The Material

New Zealand wool is a premium wool beloved for its softness and long fibers. Like all wools, it has a hydrophobic layer which repels dust and dirt, as well as lanolin, which provides its trademark luster and protects the fiber from breaking or shedding. Hand-carding is the traditional technique used to prepare fibers to be spun into yarn, ie, the step before spinning. Carding separates and straightens the wool fibers, transforming them into a roll of wool (called a rolag or a batt) that is more easily spun.

The Maker

Our partner is a small, family-run operation devoted to maintaining the integrity of the yarn they use. Wherever possible they prioritize the use of organic materials, and are committed to a high level of quality and craftsmanship.

The Designer

Our in-house, all-star design team collaborates across three different countries. Based in Los Angeles, Istanbul, and Mumbai, they put a lot of thought into each and every collection they design. Starting with the weave itself, they determine material and technique, then create moodboards to capture the look and feel before starting to design. When designs are finalized, they conduct an extensive sampling process, perfecting each style and color before it goes to production.

  • Vacuum on low power occasionally with a non-rotary vacuum to prevent dust and crumbs from setting into the roots of the fibers.
  • Avoid prolonged direct exposure to sunlight, although leaving your rug out to dry in the sun for a few hours on occasion (1-2 times a year) is actually good for the fibers.
  • Don’t pull loose fiber ends; trim with scissors to remove.
  • In case of spills, blot your rug with a clean, undyed cloth to absorb as much as possible. Use soft water and gentle, unscented detergent for cleaning.
  • For hard-to-remove stains, we recommend professional rug cleaning.
  • Store your rug by rolling it up and wrapping in cloth for protection; don’t fold or put in an airtight plastic bag for an extended period of time.
  • This rug will do best in well-ventilated rooms.
