Texere combines traditional weaving styles of the Punjab with modern designs and color choices. By varying technique choices, this delightful line of hand-knotted wool rugs become outside-of-the-ordinary rug surfaces for any environment.
A Persian asymmetrical knot, the Senneh knot, is commonly used in our Texere construction. However, we’ve recreated the handle, a term referring to a rugs flexibility, increasing the pliability and softening it’s surface.
Texere employs a variety of finishing techniques to complete the ends of each rug, carefully chosen to enhance the rug's overall aesthetic. Finishing can include a kilim flat weave band, wrapped backings and sides in varied colors, a subtle fringe, or full macramé.
The soumak knot creates a surface pattern visually akin to braiding while cut pile refers to the rugs fiber length and density. Texere combines soumak with cut pile in patterns strongly influenced by color pairings chosen to create contrast and definition, or a subtle surface for a quieter space.
Working with textured surfaces, provides a grounding platform for a space, while not overwhelming the overall composition. Our kilim and pile combination adds softness and small scale textured patterning, in contrasting colors, or beautiful tonal pairings.
A low profile or minimal pile height is best for some spaces. Working with our soumak or kilim quality as a singular weave is an excellent, easy to care for choice, even for outdoor placement.
Kilims, traditionally used for saddle bags and prayer rugs, provide a lightweight look and feel, excellent for layering multiple rugs, or simply placed on their own.
