The Collection

Named for modernist sculptors, our Modernist Jute Mats are effortless and charming. We were very taken with their kilim-like construction: a simple, rough handweave feels fresh and serene. Like a low profile rug, these minimalist pieces are lightweight and easy to move; their evocative ease works particularly well in a calm bedroom.

The Design

Hepworth has alternating neutral motifs, stripe-like trapezoids reminiscent of a desert plateau.

The Material

Jute is a natural fiber with a golden sheen, known for its tensile strength and versatility. In this piece, a handspun weft expresses jute’s natural irregularities and textures. An eco-conscious crop, jute has minimal water needs, and consumes large enough quantities of carbon dioxide that it’s C02-neutral. A cotton warp provides stability and strength.

The Maker

Our partner began in 1970 with one loom in a small room at home before flourishing into a bustling family business. The third-generation Bhadohi-based weaving house is known for their honesty, dedication, and innovation within the industry; as well as their facility with many types of weaving.

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.

  • Clean regularly with a non-rotary, low-powered vacuum. Do not use beater brush.
  • Rotate your rug on occasion to ensure even wear over time.
  • Keep away from excessive moisture.
  • Do not dry clean or steam clean.
  • Professional cleaning recommended as needed.
  • In case of spills, use a paper towel or cloth to blot the liquid. Add some clean water sparingly to the spot to dilute the stain (or wet a paper towel or cloth) and blot gently, not vigorously. Check to make sure there’s no citrus in your soap before using; this could bleach your rug. Repeat this process until the stain is removed. If the stain is persistent, try using a mild detergent, or a mixture of 1:1 white vinegar and water. Repeat this process until the stain is removed.
  • Keep away from excessive moisture as jute is very absorbent.

You do need a rug pad
Here's why

Why You Need a Rug Pad

While we recommend a rug pad for all rugs, they’re especially important for flatweaves, whose slim profile requires extra padding.

A rug pad prevents unwanted bunching and sliding, adds a subtle lift, and gives your rug a more cushioned feel underfoot.

Our rug pads are made of recycled felt and natural rubber, whereas lesser rug pads’ thin, sticky web can damage your flooring.

Moisture and mildew resistant, a rug pad stops dirt and grime from settling in your rug’s fibers.

The right rug pad

A must-have for flatweaves and other lower-pile pieces, a rug pad is the secret ingredient to maintaining your rug’s appearance and longevity. Width-wise, you’ll want to trim your rug pad so it’s 1-2” shorter than your rug on all four sides. Height-wise, we offer two premium rug pad options, both made of cozy recycled felt and natural rubber.
