We offer a range of products, each of them particularly suited to a type of project: hand-tufted, Axminster, hand-knotted, flat-weave and hand-loom carpets. Several factors are used to determine the optimal choice such as use, location and available budget, amongst others.
The first main distinction is between residential and contract (hospitality and commercial) projects. The difference lies not only in quantity and size, but also on requirements, such as fire certifications, which are more stringent for the latter type. All of our carpet and rugs are suitable for hospitality and contract projects, while for residential projects we typically recommend the hand-tufted and hand-knotted qualities.
Another key aspect to consider is the installation method. Carpets can either be laid as wall-to-wall or as inset, or produced as loose area rugs. Due to their artisanal nature, hand-knotted carpets are only found as area rugs. The Axminster, hand-tufted, handloom and flatweave carpet types suit all installation methods.
Carpet’s strength and durability, in particular their resistance to heavy footfall, is another factor. It is defined by both the production process and the materials used. For instance, hand-tufted rugs that include yarns such as bamboo silk, which provide sheen to the design, are more delicate than rugs made using exclusively a strong semi-worsted woolen fiber. With regard to the production process, our most resistant products are high-density Axminster and hand-tufted carpets.
Setting is also important. Our outdoor qualities are developed to withstand high levels of humidity and offer excellent color fastness. Moreover, specific sectors have specific requirements. For marine projects, such as cruise ships and yachts, we offer IMO certified carpet. Our aviation carpets fulfill all FAA requirements with respect to flammability as well as the specifications regarding low smoke production and low toxicity.
What all our product share is high performance and superior quality, at an excellent price-quality ratio. All our designs are developed thinking of the various carpet typologies that we offer.
We select the finest, most performant fibers for each product. In addition, all our synthetic yarns use the solution-dyeing technique, which means that the dye is added to the liquid fiber solution before the fibers are extruded. This superior process allows the color to be mixed into the solution thoroughly, bringing the color all the way through the fiber. As a result, it is nearly impossible to fade or bleach the color out of the carpet.
We would be delighted to guide through choosing the product best suited to your specific project and needs, so get in touch with us to discuss. Whether you need to value-engineer your project or are looking for the finest available rug or carpet, we can help you.
