Our Panel Collection is inspired by the rugs of nomadic tribes, who, limited by the size of their loom, would join long narrow panels together.
- We designed a premium custom wool blend which prioritizes the most important qualities of a rug: appearance, durability, and tactile experience. We use 30% New Zealand wool, prized for its softness and luster, 30% Afghan wool for its depth of color and texture, and 40% Sardinian wool, with a natural sheen and long fibers, which means they are strong and shed less.
- Handspun weft expresses the natural irregularities and tones of the yarn.
- Machine-spun warp creates a strong, longer-lasting foundation.
- The mix of natural grey-brown wools, chosen for their hue, means this rug is easily adaptable and plays well with a range of color palettes.
For our Panel Collection, we partnered with a generations-old weaving house in Northern Indiaーthe same factory that produces some of the highest-end rugs on the American market. They helped us obsess over every detail, making endless samples and experimenting with new and forgotten techniques. They are also committed to low-impact production techniques: using local grain byproduct to power the factory, as well as testing and treating their water so it can be reused by local farmers.
