Rug of the Month October 2014 – the Simia C2190
The rugs of the Simia Collection are made in Nepal, using the Tibetan knotting technique, which is responsible for the particular structure of the carpets. This special art of knotting was brought from many exiled Tibetans, who took their masterly craft once to Nepal. Today, Nepal is one of the most advanced production facilities of modern designer rugs in the world. The hand spun wool as well as the traditional knotting of the carpets are important requirements for the final product's high quality.
At first sight the pattern of the Simia C2190 seems to be arranged randomly, but on the second view it shows its feature: The single points of the design - created by designer and CEO Dani Misio – form a wave movement whose currents float in different directions. Due to the possibility to choose own, individual colours for the Simia C2190, each rug gets an unique and exclusive look. A subtle version in beige with brown spots somehow reminds of a cheetah pattern; quite more contrast presents the version in gray with orange points - just to name two examples of the wide range of possible colour combinations.
All carpets of the Simia Collection can be purchased in the standard size 300 x 230 cm as well as in any desired custom size and in many colour combinations. The choice of material is free as well, the carpets can be ordered in 100% Himalayan highland wool, as well as design or background in finest silk. The outstanding quality of materials guarantees the high durability of the carpets. With around 160,000 knots per square meter, the Simia rugs are extremely robust and suitable for high traffic surfaces and spaces.
