The Xisto rug is composed of various brown shades with distinguishing lines and textures that conveys us to the charm and picturesque nature of the schist villages. Hidden between mountains of leafy vegetation, the schist villages are one of the best-kept secrets of Portugal. The schist is the raw material that forms part of the identity of this territory and was our main inspiration to create these rugs.

Flatweave is characterized by a flat, thin, and closely woven surface without any pile or raised elements. Flatweave rugs are typically created by interlacing warp and weft threads, resulting in a durable and lightweight fabric. This construction method allows for the production of reversible rugs with intricate patterns and designs. Flatweave rugs are known for their versatility, as they can be easily rolled up, moved, and used in various settings, including high-traffic areas. They are popular for their practicality, and durability, and often have a more casual or contemporary aesthetic compared to other rug types.
