This collection is born from the persistent search for new approaches that the loom has to offer.
By combining the techniques used in kilims and typical dhurries, we have created a unique set of textures and rhythm through the variation and pressure of the fibres. The changes in the pattern, which are born from the tension applied between weft and warp, give the rug an appearance full of nuances, thus evoking the most primary manual work: the insistent trial and error process of the craftsman from which magical results arise.
Telares has required a lot of groundwork and prototyping to find the desired texture. The result is a looser kilim of curved shapes, unlike traditional kilims that are usually geometric and rectilinear. It is hand-woven with Afghan wool. Its rustic appearance and the irregularities of the wool result in a unique rug where you can appreciate the beauty and authenticity of craftsmanship. Its curly fringes are noteworthy. Available in 5 colours, each model seeks a range of contrasts with the combination the characteristic natural colour of the Afghan wool and a contrasted colour.
