From the Tappeti Area Range

Asperala is a hand tufted rug. The branches and leaves which decorate the rug are hand carved in the wool surface. The different heights of the reliefs create a three-dimensional effect, which is the distinguishing feature of this rug. Only one colour can be chosen.

Rosa and Asperala are hand tufted rugs made of New Zealand's pure virgin wool. Nature's simplest elements, but for this reason the most beautiful and delicate ones, inspired these big floral patterned rugs. The ability of the best craftsmen changes into veritable sculptural art, with an alteration of bas relief and high relief to reproduce leaves and veins, petals and stamens. The classicism of the floral subject contrasts with neat and deep cout of the decorative patterns outline, resulting in a sophisticated and contempoary graphic effect.

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.
