The hand-tufted rug you described is crafted using the hand-tufting technique, where yarn is inserted into a fabric backing to create the desired design. The cut pile technique is employed, meaning that the yarn loops are cut to create a plush and even surface on the rug. The pile height of 14mm indicates the thickness or height of the rug's fibers from the base to the tip.
The rug is made from a blend of materials, including bamboo, botanical silk, and mohair. Bamboo is known for its durability and eco-friendly nature, making it a desirable choice for rug construction. Botanical silk offers a luxurious and soft texture, enhancing the overall feel of the rug. Mohair, on the other hand, provides a lustrous sheen and adds durability to the rug's construction.
This type of rug is versatile and can be used in various settings. It is suitable for both hospitality settings, such as hotels or restaurants, where durability and aesthetic appeal are essential, as well as residential use.
The rug features a mix of colours, indicating that it incorporates multiple shades or a varied colour palette. This adds visual interest and allows the rug to complement different interior design styles and colour schemes.
Some of our most popular suggested sizes are listed below, but it is possible to have this rug in your own bespoke size. Please enquire if you are interested in this option.
- The Botanical Silk used in Ferreira de Sa's rugs is derived from a vegetable yarn produced from wood pulp that is carefully collected from conscious managed forests. This botanical silk is eco-friendly, biodegradable and 99.8% of the solvents used to convert wood pulp to silk are recycled and reused repeatedly. These fibres are certified with the internationally recognized EU Ecolabel, an environmental quality label only awarded to products and services which have a significantly lower environmental impact throughout their entire lifecycle. Botanical Silk provides a smooth and plush finish for the most luxurious silky feel, since the pile moves when walked on like silk-velvet. The light reflecting properties and softness of the Botanical Silk looks and feels both elegant and comfortable at the same time. This yarn is antibacterial, breathable and moist-absorbing to regulate any room temperature.
