Hand tufted in India in New Zealand wool, woolsilk and tencel mix.
Hand tufted rugs should not be confused with machine-made tufted rugs. Hand tufting is a traditional method, which requires a high level of craftsmanship. Our rugs are entirely made by hand: the yarn is hand dyed, tufted by hand with a small mechanical tool and finally sheared, using hand held scissors. No electricity is used.
The inspiration of the carpet was the designer Gabriel Tan’s fascination of the Northern lights.
”Personally the Aurora is almost like a holy grail, because despite a few trips to the far north it has
always escaped me”.
We experimented with different colour variants of the aurora such as purple and bright green but found
that we wanted to present a more classic and warmer palette more suited to the home.
