Fiber: 90% Afghan wool + 10% New Zealand wool
Total height: 4mm
Technique: Hand-loomed + Embroidery
Density: 156,000 yarns/m2
90% Afghan Wool
Afghan wool comes from sheep grazing high in the mountains of Afghanistan. Naturally wavy, it is a very resistant material with a rough touch. Due to the curl of the wool and the irregularity in the yarn, when weaving it, it achieves an aged and unique appearance.
10% New Zealand wool
Typically, New Zealand wool is known to be the whitest, cleanest, purest and most natural in the world. Its softness is due in part to the altitude and the vegetation available to the herds. It is guaranteed to be cruelty-free.
Manual weaving on a vertical or horizontal loom that plays with the intersection between weft and warp.
It is characterized by being thin, hairless and with geometric motifs. High-density rugs, durable and resistant, even in the case of very light rugs.

Hayon subtly introduces color through small elements brimming with personality that help to interpret each of the images. Nine faces are distributed at different angles so that the rug can be viewed from any perspective, fitting perfectly in any space.
