A Rangoli is a Hindu floral design with a long historic tradition. Placed on the floor at the entrance of houses or buildings as a welcome symbol, the Rangoli provides protection or offers good luck.
The pattern is normally composed of flower petals, leaves, coloured powders, rice flour, and other elements that act as a vehicle for decoration. Inspired by the essence of the Rangoli, the rug is a tribute to the original essence, acting as a beacon of wellbeing and welcome.
In addition to the beautiful historical undertones, the rugs in this collection offer extraordinary charm for living or dining rooms in the large version, or hallways and bedrooms in the smaller version.

This technique requires a pistol-like tool to punch the fiber strands into a previously stretched fabric in a frame.
To start the process, the strands are punched into the areas marked by the mapping (a template used to transfer the digital design to the rug support).
Next, the protruding strands are cut and shaved to achieve the desired pile height.
The design is contoured with scissors or a needle in order to correctly define the different areas of the motif.
Once the motif is defined, a layer of latex is applied to the reverse side of the rug to ensure that the strands remain attached to the structure.
To finish, a layer of fabric is affixed to act as a lining, offering a quality finish.
