The hand-woven Knitted rug pays a simple tribute to texture with its braided surface created with the Soumak technique. Made with jute fibres, this is a fresh and rustic rug, soft and resistant. An appeal to the senses, a return to the basics in life.
Flourishing in tropical regions, mainly in India and Bangladesh, this plant is 100% biodegradable and recyclable, so it does not cause environmental damage. It is also one of the strongest vegetable fibers with insulating and antistatic properties. It presents a natural appearance.
Manual weaving produced on a vertical loom in which the strands are tightly fastened to the warp by knots.
The shape and thickness of the knot differentiate the variety of hand-knotted rugs and the finish will result in a 'Cut Pile', 'Loop Pile' or a braid-style in the case of Sumak rugs.
The number of knots will directly affect the density, definition of the pattern, durability and value of the rug.
This is a hand-knotting technique, in which half the knot is wound around the warp, while the other half is left loose. The result is an asymmetric knot that can lead to high densities and truly detailed motifs.
This is also a hand-knotting technique, but unlike the Persian knot, consisting in tightly symmetrical knots that achieve consistent pile and is used for thick rugs.

To create this type of knot, the craftsman winds the fiber around a rod, working more quickly. The fiber is subsequently cut and the cut pile or loop pile is obtained.
A technique in which the strands are fastened to the warp, which makes the rug seem to be constructed of braids. In this manner, a flat structure with surface relief is obtained.
