The shaggy pile of this rag rug was made using the proddy technique, with wool and cotton recycled fabrics. Six small squares are made and then joined together in the final piece – a wonderfully tactile and functional rug that would be ideal for the bedside, doorway, or in a front of a fireplace.
Braiding rugs became close to an art form, and going above the skills of someone who wants to make simple and inexpensive floor cover. Rugs are today made from pure wool, carefully designed to fit almost in any interior. They are hand braided and laced with special threads.
For over twenty five years Designer Rugs have complimented the aesthetics of residential homes and commercial spaces throughout the world with rugs of exceptional quality and unique designs.
By working in collaboration with leading Australian artists and designers, this innovative and design focused company has earned an outstanding reputation for producing custom made rugs for private clients and commercial professionals alike.
Did you ever ask yourself how the rugs and carpets, how we know them today, made the way through the history? The idea is as old as the human civilisation, basically. Purposes of woven covers were different, and shapes and materials changed and evolved through the time.
