A contemporary combination of vibrant colour accents and an ancient classic.
A combination of distressed weaving, the elimination of pattern sections and the addition of vibrant colour accents make these rugs both contemporary and stylish whilst capturing traditional motifs.
Over a century of skill and craftsmanship is woven in every rug produced. Woven onto Jacquard Wilton looms with cotton chenille yarns, each rug has multiple layers of textures, distressed areas and intricate stitching detail to give a true 'vintage' look.
The rug is hand finished with reinforced corners and an anti-slip layer for a secure fit.
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.
