Curator's Notes

The Collection

A collection of hand-knotted flatweave rugs inspired by Steve McQueen, Once Upon A Time in Hollywood, and Malibu sands; designed for songwriting in your canyon abode. They have a 1970s California-opulence feeling: cavalier and laid back, with lustrous wool that catches the sun. Their casual flatwoven ground is punctuated by the soft glamour of raised, cut-pile motifs.

The Design

These rugs feature raised motifs in rich, earthy hues. Joan has a classic, dynamic tone-on-tone pattern that unfurls across its ground with a snakelike geometry.

The Material

Cut-pile rugs with a soft, satisfying footfall and pleasing weight, the Laurel Canyon collection is woven of New Zealand wool, 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. We mix it with Indian wool for softness, and it’s hand-loomed onto a 100% cotton foundation for durability.

The Maker

Our partner is a third-generation family-run weaving house in Bhadohi, India. They specialize in plush pile rugs, and their immense knowledge helped us improve construction for durability and less shedding. Their values are twofold: creating the highest-quality product and taking care of their team, supporting their weavers in whatever they need.

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 work with the supplier on an extensive sampling process, perfecting each style and color before it goes to production.
