Crown is a hand tufted rug. Its surface is delianeated by hand into cm.60 x 60 squares by a cutting tecniques. Rugs can be produced also without this delineation. Crown rug can be completely in wool, with off white colour backing, or with wool background and silk design, with backing dyed in the same colour of background. Three colours can be chosen: one for the background, one for the design and one for the design outline.
The Crown rug can be produced either with a completely decorated surface or, when requested, with the surface delineated into 60x60 by a cm squared modules by a hand carving technique. In this last case, the number and the placement of the decorated modules is determined according to pre-established patterns.
Crown Area rug can be produced in one solid colour or in a three-colours combination.
Area rugs are entirely hand made with New Zealand wool and royal silk yarns of the highest quality. After the yarn is hand tufted to the rug’s weft, the artisan begins the intricate and highly precise process of cutting and shaping with shears in order to create the complex patterns that are the defining aesthetic feature of these rugs. Precious and long lasting, the Area rugs are available in several hues, also in custom dimensions.
The resistance to light and to the recommended cleaning method, the quality and the density of the yarns guarantee that the designs hold their shape over time and ensure that Area rugs will retain their body and luster over many years. For these reasons, the Area rugs are suited also to high traffic areas. The variety of designs and colours allows for the creation of tailor-made rugs; for special rugs, the Company provides a computer rendering of the rug in reduced scale, to verify the overall chromatic effect and the final result.
