The Design

Cocoon is a modest collection of cozy mid century modern flatweaves. With its tight and varied weave, the quality of Morse is what makes the difference. It has a chunkier weave throughout its field, and a thinner, flatter weave in the motifs—this gives a high-low contrast that creates additional pattern and shadow-play.

The Material

Felted wool provides a satisfying footfall and pleasing weight, and a tight weave that’s more resistant to fraying and moisture. The fiber’s natural lanolin makes it soft and shiny, also protecting it from shedding and dirt—and it decomposes quickly without risk of microfibers. In this piece, a felted wool weft is woven onto a cotton warp for added durability.

The Maker

Our partner is a small, family-run operation devoted to maintaining the integrity of the yarn they use. Wherever possible they prioritize the use of organic materials, and are committed to a high level of quality and craftsmanship. 

The Designers

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

  • Vacuuming is not recommended for felted yarns as it may pull at the fibers. Instead, use a broom to sweep off debris, or bring your rug outside with a buddy to give it a good shake.
  • Avoid prolonged direct exposure to sunlight.
  • Don’t pull loose fiber ends; trim with scissors to remove.
  • In case of spills, blot your rug with a clean, undyed cloth to absorb as much as possible. For hard-to-remove stains, we recommend professional rug cleaning.
  • Store your rug by rolling it up and wrapping in cloth for protection; don’t fold or put in an airtight plastic bag for an extended period of time.
  • This rug will do best in well-ventilated rooms.

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.
