Hand-knotted by Tibetan craftsmen, and with nearly 125,000 individual knots per square meter, each of our rugs undergoes a long and complex production process. Produced without the aid of machines, it is this manual production process that gives each piece its exceptional quality. Each step of the production process is managed in the same workshop, from dyeing and knotting to the final wash.
Once the raw materials have been refined and spun by hand, they are washed and then dyed by a "color expert". A key craftsman in the production process, he or she is responsible for the color of each carpet, ensuring that the final result is as close as possible to the palette conceived by our designer Cristina Celestino.
This is followed by the knotting process, during which a warp composed of hundreds of strands of cotton is stretched on a loom. The transverse threads constitute the weft, which ensures the overall sturdiness of the piece. The wool and silk threads are then knotted, one after the other, onto the cotton warp to create the pattern.
The finishing touches are made by hand with scissors to finish defining the pattern; the carpet is then washed before being dried under the Himalayan sun.
