Zapora is inspired by the beautiful textile and rich patterns of Mayan cultureAs part of the A Rum Fellow x FLOOR_STORY collection, Zapora takes its cues from the unique handwoven tunics worn by the women of Mayan tribes. Bringing fresh perspective to Mayan brocade textiles, the rug is lovingly hand-knotted in India from wool and bamboo viscose for radiating lustre.
Labour intensive and painstaking, hand-knotting is the most traditional way of making and creates rugs of exceptional quality and longevity. Perfect for fine work and intricate patterns, a hand-knotted rug really is the don. Our hand-knotted styles range in density from 60-knots per inch right up to 150-knots for incredibly fine, velvet-like softness.
