Inspired by, you guessed it, the shape of a prism, this collection is designed with lighting in mind. The small, geometric crystal motifs on these rugs create a gamut of colors, just as white light becomes a rainbow when it passes through a prism. Its weave makes the rich, gleaming shapes seem to transform. Lest you think this rug is flashy, we’ve got you covered: the jewel-like geographies are cut small, grounded amidst a wide, neutral field. The Design
The beauty of these pieces is their shapeshifting. Unlike your standard ombre where the overall wash fades from one color to the next, these rugs read like dappled light. For such simple motifs, they dance on the floor, like light shimmers and shakes through a prism. Each design and colorway changes differently. Refract’s motifs form a repeating pattern: triangle-square-triangle-circle, and so on. The Material
In this piece, wool, viscose, and polyester are blended for texture and vibrancy. Wool 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. Viscose is extremely soft and durable, and beloved for its pleasing drape and ease in dying. Here it adds a subtle, shifting, silk-like sheen. A semi-synthetic plant material, it’s derived from cellulose, which is the main element in plant cell walls. Finally, these are combined with mildew-resistant polyester and a latex cotton backing for stability and strength. The Maker
Our supplier got their start over 3 decades ago in yarn production. When they expanded into weaving, this material foundation gave them a distinct advantage, granting full control over the yarn quality and consistency of their handwoven rugs. They’ve always been a step ahead in innovation, collaborating with providers worldwide to procure the best raw material and machinery. The Designer
Our in-house, all-star design team works across Los Angeles, Istanbul, and Mumbai. Starting with the weave itself, they determine the collection material, technique, and mood. When designs are finalized, they conduct an extensive sampling process, perfecting each style and hue before it goes to production.
