Kilim rug with asymmetric cut and bright coloured rhombus design.

With the Losanges collection, the Bouroullec brothers continue their study of simplicity and elegance, reinterpreting the traditional Persian rug by using ancient kilim techniques.

Technically complex, the Losanges collection requires great skill due to the combination of 13 colours in the geometrical rhombus pattern, a great challenge for the craftsmen of northern Pakistan.

Aside from the handcraft techniques involved, the Afghan wool is also spun by hand to achieve unique colour tones that make each rhombus different, and each rug a unique item.

100% Afghan wool

Hand-spun wool from indigenous sheep of Afghanistan. This fiber has a low environmental impact since the rugs are woven in nearby Pakistan.
Traditionally, wool is the most widely used material for rugs. Presenting key characteristics, wool offers quality, flexibility, and is 100% biodegradable. It is hypoallergenic, easy to care for, and ages well. In addition, it is considered a great thermal and acoustic insulator as well as naturally regulating humidity. Wool rugs help create cozy and comfortable environments.

Hand loomed Kilim

A flat-weave rug in which the warp strands attached to the loom are interwoven with the weft strands.
One of the main characteristics of this technique is that the weft is much tighter and denser than the warp, making it bear the weight of the pattern. These rugs usually contain many colors and generally display geometric motifs. The process permits the use of strands of different thicknesses and origins.

Traditionally, the kilim is a high-density, durable and resistant rug, even in the case of very lightweight rugs.
