Rug Of The Month July 2018 – The Marouk MK40
Pure Elegance Without Compromises
Berber carpets enjoy great popularity among connoisseurs. Already the renowned architects and designers Alvar Aalto, Le Corbusier, Ray and Charles Eames appreciated the traditional motifs and monochrome variants for furnishing private spaces. Mischioff combines tradition with modernity in the Marouk Collection. Classic motifs have been reinterpreted and sustainable natural materials get processed into robust carpets thanks to the careful knotting by hand.
The Marouk MK40 delights design lovers with the typical asymmetrical pattern of Berber carpets. Large non-uniform rhombuses in black are presented on a pale ground pile of undyed natural wool. Since neither edges nor structure are completely coloured and straight, but uneven and slightly speckled, the transitions look smooth and soft. These natural colour gradients, also called "abrashes", give the rug its subtle shades and contrasts with its charming look.
Tips For A Harmonious Setup
Mischioff's MK40 is ideally suited for the straightforward interior to set refreshing accents without detracting from the overall impression of a living environment through restless colour combinations. But a playful furnishing concept can also be enriched with this Nepali carpet: Thanks to its timeless colour scheme, it harmonizes with expressive colours and serves as a solid basis for a characteristic style.
100 % Himalayan Highland Wool For Maximum Durability
In order to ensure a very fair price-performance ratio as well as shorter delivery times, the rugs of the Marouk Collection are knotted a little bit coarser compared to other Mischioff carpet lines. Even big custom sizes can be realized in short time. Lovers of a dense pile, which is achieved with a knot density of about 93,000 knots per square meter, must fear no loss of quality. The considerable pile height of ten to twelve millimeters guarantees the soft surface of the rugs. The Marouk MK40 weighs about four kilograms per square meter - this makes anti-slip pads on most surfaces unnecessary, which also contributes to everyday practicality.
A Fair-Trade Product Made In Nepal
The first-class, handspun highland wool is processed by experienced weavers and in a manufactory in Nepal and knotted exactly to the design templates of Mischioff. The experienced skilled workers are paid fairly and the respectful treatment of local employees is a matter of course for us. Mischioff Managing Director Dani Misio regularly visits the production sites and maintains family relationships with the weavers. The fact that we act according to the fair trade principle and value good working conditions is confirmed by the fair-trade Label STEP. Their independent inspectors regularly check the situation on site. The environment is also very important to us, which is why we make our contribution to climate protection through resource-saving production processes and the use of natural materials.
