We know that a fundamental and crucial element to any good interior design scheme begins from the ground up. When planning a new interior or building scheme thoughts automatically go to the floor finishing’s, regardless of what stage your building’s at. As construction work takes hold and the building starts to take on its skeletal phase, it’s time to start thinking about your flooring.
We want to showcase the raw beauty of carpet and its importance and functionality within the modern home. A cross between an Art Installation and an Architectural Show with the main focus being a deconstructed skeleton of a building.
Wool-rich carpets will form floating walls, floors and ceilings with architectural detailing added. Dividing walls will rise from the ground with carpet panels inserted. The display will sit seamlessly within an industrial setting and will hint at the manufacturing process of carpets too. If you are seeking a contemporary yet cozy way of living within the hustle and bustle of a big city we’d love to see you and help you fall in love with the beauty of a Morus International carpet.
Hand knotted rugs are made on a specially designed loom and are knotted by hand. The making of hand knotted rugs is a very ancient art that deserves a lot of admiration! The size of the loom depends on the size of the rug and the weaving is done from the bottom to the top. The rug weaver inserts the “knots” into the foundation of the rug and they are tied by hand, this makes up the “pile” of the rug. This is a very tedious and time consuming operation.
Machine made rugs are made by large machines called power looms. A power loom is electrically automated and controlled by computers. Machine made rugs can be made quickly and are manufactured with materials including wool and synthetic fibers such as polypropylene, nylon, polyester, acrylic and art silk.
