This item is part of our Considered Collection
Re-Rug emerged from the decision to use the leftover wool accumulated by our suppliers. This initiative is the result of a long research process, the challenge of recovering these wools to create a new yarn suitable for weaving. Each Re-Rug uses 1kg/m2 of reprocessed wool, thereby directly helping to reduce unmanaged waste, as well as reducing CO2 emission, since no virgin material needs to be produced or trasported.
The hallmark of this circular collection is the intention to preserve the irregularity and tonal richness of the wool leftovers. This challenge led us to experiment with new processes through which we have managed to maintain multiple colors.
The Re-Rug collection is made using the hand-loomed dhurrie technique, resulting in rugs with a flat structure formed from the cross between the warp and weft. In the case of Re-Rug, in order to obtain greater strength and quality, the structural part of the rug, i.e. the warp, is made of New Zealand virgin wool dyed black and white, yellow or blue, green or tile. And in the weft, the marbled recycled yarn of varying thickness and color.
The result is a unique collection that is composed of 50% virgin wool and 50% reused wool
