The Tenture rug is an exceptional piece designed by the Nepalese craftsmen of CC-tapis, who have an ancestral know-how transmitted from generation to generation. Hand-knotted from Himalayan wool, it is distinguished by its undyed yarns, which give it a unique raw and natural texture.

A large decorative object, it is capable of transforming the atmosphere of any room.

The Tenture rug is an ideal choice to add a touch of elegance to your spaces.

Maintenance advice
Maison Matisse recommends vacuuming carpets at least once a week. Hand-knotted carpets can be professionally cleaned. Do not dry clean them. During the first few months, the carpet will "shed" some fibres or lint, which is only natural, the more the carpet is used, the sooner this will end. An underlay is recommended for all our carpets to prevent them from slipping. Prolonged exposure of the products to direct sunlight may alter the colour of the pieces.

Arts and materials

The Tenture carpets are hand-knotted by Tibetan artisans from the renowned Italian manufacturer CC-tapis. Designed in their ancestral workshops located in Nepal, the Tenture rugs have 89,000 individual knots per square meter. 

Hand-knotting is an extremely fine and complex production technique that gives Maison Matisse's rugs exceptional quality. The wool comes from Himalayan sheep in Tibet.

Hand-knotted, thread by thread, knot by knot, this carpet is a truly unique piece made entirely of Himalayan wool, known for its exceptional resistance. The CC-carpet workshops follow a set of environmentally friendly rules at every stage of production, whether it be the choice of indigenous Himalayan wools, the use of filtered rainwater, and above all the abolition of the use of any chemical or artificial product.

In the same way that Matisse repeatedly interpreted the subjects of his still life, Faye Toogood interprets here the motif of the line, taken from the tapestry present in the background of one of the drawings from Matisse's book "Drawings: Theme and Variation" (1943). 

The multiple freehand drawings thus become the motif of the carpets. Echoing Matisse's choice to leave empty spaces in his drawings, revealing the blank paper, the off-white of the carpet becomes a color that Faye Toogood has chosen to use through un-dyed wool threads.
