Named for the crafting technique that inspired it, the Macrame rug collection from Creative Matters features nine fully customizable designs that celebrate the charm of undyed wool. Each rug is handwoven in India by artisans and combines the natural shades of wool with accent yarns of dyed wool.
With Solace, a background soumak flat weave is accented by a shaggy cut pile curve that introduces depth while a tailored five-centimetre fringe adds another tactile layer. Composed of exotic natural wools and New Zealand wool.
Retreat – in Earth and Ivory – recalls 1960s wall hangings, expressed through its undulating pattern, scaled to a modern size, and highly textural detailing. The rug combines tight flatweave construction with kapli weave, shaggy cut pile and chunky dhurrie.
Evoking an abstract cityscape, Oasis has a linear momentum, flowing arches and sharp contours and reveals a different pattern when approached from different directions. Each textured section within the rug is separated by an overstitching technique.
Named for the Swedish word meaning home, Hemma balances a laidback urban vibe with a structured grid-like pattern. Utilizing artisanal texture techniques, the engaging rug easily transitions between warm and cool months.
Settle has a modern style rendered with rustic textures – a herringbone flatweave with chunky soumak creates the background for a cut-pile linear pattern in coppertone and charcoal grey tones.
A symmetrical design comprised of angular geometric shapes adds interest to two corners of Casa, highlighting the central negative space in an energetic way. Made using three techniques – Persian knot, flatweave and low-shag cut pile – the rug is delightfully textural.
Abode Natural is a composition of irregular rectangles in five woven textures arranged in a charmingly unexpected way. Grey and greige tones are accented by crisp linen, and all three shades were achieved with natural undyed sheeps wool.
A soumak flatweave, the bohemian Haven features silk-bound rope detailing that ends in playful tassels. Earthy rose and rust colours define the recessed square details against the neutral ground.
Each of the nine rugs in the Macrame collection are available in four standard sizes and can also be custom sized and coloured.
