Our Rug Of The Month April 2018: The Tibey TB18
Pure Nature And Elegance
The special feature of the Tibey Collection is the special loop & cut knotting technique. Although the two natural fibers, silk and wool, are evenly knotted, they are processed individually: while the silk line is cut, the wool line remains closed (loop). Among other things, these carpets owe their elegant pile to this technique, which transforms every floor into a welcoming space with a subtle sheen and soft surface texture. Although they are not pure silk carpets, they feel due to elaborate processing accordingly.
Straightforwardness And Creativity
To achieve the decorative pattern of the Tibey TB18, dark brown woolen lines are overlaid by multi-coloured silk lines. Due to the incorporated differences in height, dynamic impressions result, depending on the perspective of the viewer. The combination of fine lines and subtle colours creates a friendly design that looks creative, without disturbing rooms.
The individual arrangement of the lines with no continuous system provides a diverse look and prevents unharmonious stripes. Like all Tibey rugs, the TB18 has a vintage charm that adds a cozy, yet tasteful ambience to any interior.
Take a look at the characteristic design of the TB18:
At the furniture fair IMM Cologne 2018, the designer rug was one of the highlights that attracted many design lovers to the Mischioff booth.
Acoustics And Indoor Climate Benefit
In addition to the selected materials, the elaborate Tibetan knot favors the long-lasting quality of the carpet. About 160,000 knots per square meter are made in several months and ensure maximum robustness and an unmatched surface feel, which is also positively influenced by the weight of around 3.3 kg per square meter. Heavy carpets reduce the risk of slipping and provide security when entering.
The comfort of living room, office and co. benefits from further positive effects: while the sound-absorbing surface of the carpet optimizes the acoustics, the natural materials with their moisture-regulating qualities promote a healthy indoor climate.
Care note: Since the wool content of the Tibey TB18 is 50 percent and this fiber has a natural self-cleaning function, the rug is dirt-repellent and therefore easy to clean. Even smells are significantly less in comparison to synthetic fibers. The investment in a natural rug is thus worthwhile in every respect.
