Our first collection of washable wool rugs involved many rounds of revision to ensure these pieces were beautiful and functional. Their modified construction makes the rugs quite supple, so they're more easily squashed into a washing machine; without compromising on thickness, softness, and fluffiness. The graphic simplicity of the linework sings across their soft fields, allowing the high-low effect of the pile to shine through.
Named for esteemed linocut artists, these rugs feature a thick cut-pile design which reads as tone-on-tone. Taylor is a mossy green with slate blue lines engraved in a loose, gestural plaid. Look closely and you'll notice that the gray-blue horizontal lines are ever-so-slightly darker than their vertical counterparts, a subtle, enriching detail.
Washable wool rugs with a soft, satisfying footfall and pleasing weight, Lino is woven of a combination of New Zealand and Indian wools to achieve just the right texture and durability. New Zealand wool is a premium wool beloved for its softness and long fibers. The fiber's natural lanolin makes it soft and shiny, protecting it from shedding and dirt. It also decomposes quickly, without risk of microfibers.
We partnered with a small, family-run weaving house. They're Craftmark-certified, which means they meet stringent national standards for socially responsible handmade products. Many of their weavers have been with them for as long as 30 years. To visit their factory is to be steeped in its personal history, from the walls of photographs honoring their lineage, to the majestic, hundred-year-old timber looms they still use today.
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.
