Rug Of The Month May 2022: Everything Is Fine With The Tibey TB39
Order is half the life, as the saying goes. Our rug of the month, the Tibey TB39, with its clear structure and tidiness, is the favorite rug for people who love clarity and linearity in life.
A designer rug to relax and unwind, and also a masterpiece of the art of weaving. Equal parts of wool and silk, as well as the restrained color scheme, bring balance and equilibrium to all rooms whose message is: everything is fine here.
Get To The Bottom Of Things
Despite its linear pattern, the Tibey TB39 is anything but boring. The areas of tension are created on the one hand by the special knotting technique, the loop & cut technique, on the other hand by the coloring. This extraordinary interplay of color and technology makes the Tibey TB39 a rug that only reveals its complexity and the unique design signature of Mischioff at second glance.
Loop & Cut is the name given to a knotting technique in which only one weaving line is cut. The Tibey TB39 is made from 50 percent highland wool and 50 percent Chinese silk. The silk line is cut open and the wool line remains closed. The wool line seems to lie deeper, remains in the underground, and the open silk line emerges and gives the carpet its special feel.
However, the silk line is also the carrier of the pattern and is therefore responsible for the color gradient above. And if you look closely, you'll see that this gradient is now crossed by the black loop line. In fact, a grid is created here in the Tibey TB39. Horizontal lines created by the knotting technique and vertical lines that carry the pattern. Although a grid is understood as a basic ordering system, it is not the basis for this extraordinary rug, but the result of the creative process.

The Interplay Of High-Quality Natural Materials
This area of tension is taken up again in the selection of materials. Although wool and silk are often viewed as fundamentally different in terms of their properties and effects, they make an ideal pair in carpet design. The highland wool, which is obtained by shearing sheep that live in the high-altitude regions of the Himalayas, has everything it takes to make a carpet hard-wearing, robust and durable. The self-cleaning function, tread resistance and noise reduction of the pure new wool are advantages that noticeably create a cozy atmosphere in every room in which such a carpet is laid.
The exclusive grace brings the high-quality Chinese silk. Silk, the only endless textile fiber that occurs in nature, has its origins in China and that is where Mischioff silk is also produced. The breeding of silkworms is very complex and actually not very productive. Up to three thousand cocoons are needed for about 250 grams of silk. This leads to the very high prices of this extraordinary material. Quality silk is unsurpassed not only in terms of price, but also in terms of its properties. No other material looks as elegant and noble, feels as soft and seductive as silk. In addition, silk is extremely tear-resistant, temperature-regulating and allergy-friendly. A rug made of wool and silk, like our Tibey TB39, combines the best properties of two high-quality materials.
Reliable And Fair Production
We also love tidiness in the production of our rugs. Here, too, we want to be able to say: everything is in order. To this end, we have been working with the Swiss certification label STEP for over ten years. Our carpet manufactory in Nepal is constantly monitored by STEP and their working conditions are examined.
STEP is the driving force behind the creation of conditions worth living in and goes far beyond the actual work environment. Enabling the weavers' children to go to school, health, safety and environmental protection are the cornerstones of STEP's work. Sustainability at all levels of carpet production and fair trade are communicated goals of this non-profit organization with which we are happy to work hand in hand.
