A brand new design in the new york inspired mad men collection

A brand new design in the New York inspired Mad Men collection is Fahrenheit 32. The figure is freezing point -0° Celsius- and refers to the chilling winds of the New York late Fall and Winter period, when wind chills and even polar vortexes bring frost, snow and ice to the city. The pattern Evokes the marks left by the skaters on the ice of the Wollman Rink. If you like the colour, this green Central Park rug is what you need.

The _Construction

Jacquard

Invented in 1804 by Frenchman, Joseph Marie Jacquard, the original Jacquard head simplified the process of machine making complex patterns through a number of punched cards ‘chained' together in sequence. Each card featured a number of punched holes to form a single row of the pattern and the chain could be as long as needed, helping Jacquard equipped looms to produce some really fantastic and surprisingly intricate designs. Now with digital control, modern-day electronic Jacquard machines are computer-controlled, significantly reducing the downtime with changing traditional card machines, avoiding the necessity for repeats and showing almost complete versatility in creating pattern. By far the best way to machine make rugs, electronic Jacquard rug making speeds-up production dramatically, helping to bring beautiful design at a really competitive price point.
