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.
Geometric patterns and especially circular shapes have been a recurring item throughout Marie-Louise Hellgrens designs and the Wedge and Web carpets are not an exception. However, there is a subtle twist to the patterns, if you take a closer look you may find small spontaneous variations to the hand-sketched geometric designs. For Marie-Louise it is always important that her work includes humor, subtle energy that, at a first glance may look symmetric, but then surprises you with something new every time you look.
Available in 100% wool with tencel pattern or in 50% wool and 50% tencel with tencel pattern.
