Cotton and merino wool rug, lined with jute, handwoven in loom.
These rugs are soft, warm, comfortable and resistant. We have woven them with merino wool because it retains heat very well, its touch is dense and invites us to step on it, especially barefoot.
They are very versatile rugs, we have woven with various shades of the same color or in contrasting colors by weaving with various threads, so that they can combine with different styles of decoration, adapting to the accompanying furniture. Depending on the color combination, we can add a subtle or contrasting touch of color and create a cozy and/or carefree atmosphere. We can also weave them under custom request, measurements and colors so that they adapt as best as possible to your taste.
The fabric is thick with body, has a high insulation capacity and an equally high heat capacity.
We have woven these rugs by hand on our artisan looms, in a variant made of twill, to create a highly textured, striking and colorful fabric. We have added a jute lining in the reserve of the fabric to give it more body, quality and durability, helping to avoid wear with use. This lining is sewn by machine where the fringes would go and by hand along the two sides, to give it more quality and get a better finish.
Cotton is one of the first fibers used to make textiles because of its exceptional qualities. It is soft, flexible, durable, absorbent, breathable and totally versatile: cool or warm. It is one of the few fibres that, depending on the thickness of its yarn, can be used both in summer, fine and cool, and in winter, thick and warm.
Wool is a fibre obtained from sheep's hair. There are different types of wool depending on the race of the sheep, the best quality being that of the Merino sheep. It is a very soft, flexible, breathable and warm wool that retains its colour very well.
Jute is a vegetable fiber obtained mainly from the white jute plant, it has insulating and antistatic properties and retains little moisture. It is acoustic insulating and does not cause skin irritation. It is widely used as a strong and durable textile.
Fibers: 30% cotton, 70% merino wool higher. 100% jute woven bottom.
Measurements: 110 cm x 180 cm.
Warp / Weft Color: Natural base handwoven in natural or dyed colors.
Finishes: Weft thread splices inserted by hand in the selvages. Overlocked edges so that the fabric does not unravel. Machine and hand sewn jute lining for quality and durability. Hand wash and steam iron for superior quality, softness and durability.
Washing: hand wash, with neutral detergent and cold water. For large rugs we recommend dry cleaning or specialized laundry, due to the weight.
Laying: wrap the clothesline with a towel holding it with two clips and hang the piece vertically so that it does not leave a trace and facilitates ironing.
Ironing: no special care is taken, in general the temperature indicated by your iron for wool. Looks good without ironing.
COMMON FEATURES IN OUR SUSTAINABLE LUXURY FABRICS.
This piece is unique, designed and handwoven by us on a manual wooden artisan loom, moved by our hands and feet, we weave it strand by strand, with the best quality natural fiber, the best to wear or use in contact with your skin and we take care of all the details so that you have a piece, timeless, durable and of high quality.
All its finishes are made by hand. It does not have knots in the warp (vertical threads) nor in the weft (horizontal threads). The weft splices are collected by hand in the selvedges with a needle, achieving a more complete and better quality finish.
We wash it by hand with natural soap, to verify the quality of the fiber, the dyeing if it has it and take its final measurement, something essential for us, all the pieces woven on the artisan loom shrink in their first wash because the fibers are repositioned (This is only done in the first wash, then they do not shrink any more). And then we iron it by hand with steam so that once it is finished, you can appreciate all its qualities.
