Rug of the Month August 2014 – Tibey CX2487
The handknotted rugs of Mischioff's Tibey Collection are very popular as trendy, high-quality home accessories because of the exceptional designs and the abstract patterns. The unique feature of this carpet collection is the extraordinary combination of the materials wool and silk. The special look of the Tibey is a result of the special loop & cut knotting technique, which provides a nice combination of the knotted woolen loops with the motifs of silk. The Tibey Collection offers a wide range of exciting, unusal colours and patterns – you can choose between rather classical or abstract designs with an individual charme and a changing appearance, depending on the light and the angle of view.
The combination of finest silk and the highest-quality wool sourced from the Himalayan highlands is a matter of course for the Tibey Collection. The inimitable charm of the Tibey rugs lies in the special loop & cut knotting technique: The rugs are knotted alternately in woolen and silk lines, but only the silk lines are cutted, while the woolen lines stay closed (loop). Therefore, the rugs have a distinctive structure, the raised silk provides a particularly soft and brilliant pile. As a matter of course, all carpets are entirely made by hand using only the best materials – and like all our carpets in strict compliance with the guidelines of our Fair Trade partner Label STEP.
The Tibey design CX2487 is one of about 20 new models which recently arrived in our showroom in Zurich, designed for the current summer season. All new designs are available in our permanently updated online catalog. Have a look at our newest combinations of fresh and strong summer colours – such as the Tibey CX2487 with its light blue woolen loops, which intensify the fresh impression of the colours and create a nice vintage appearance. The use of about 30% silk guarantees the exclusivity of this designer rug and provides the particular shine of individual colours. The usual standard size of 300 x 230 centimeters is a good size for many living rooms.
But of course, the noble silk carpets of Tibey Collection can be ordered in individual custom size. Have we aroused your interest in a special rug of Tibey Collection?
