Kilim rug with asymmetric cut and bright coloured rhombus design.
With the Losanges collection, the Bouroullec brothers continue their study of simplicity and elegance, reinterpreting the traditional Persian rug by using ancient kilim techniques.
Technically complex, the Losanges collection requires great skill due to the combination of 13 colours in the geometrical rhombus pattern, a great challenge for the craftsmen of northern Pakistan.
Aside from the handcraft techniques involved, the Afghan wool is also spun by hand to achieve unique colour tones that make each rhombus different, and each rug a unique item.

Hand loomed Kilim
A flat-weave rug in which the warp strands attached to the loom are interwoven with the weft strands.
One of the main characteristics of this technique is that the weft is much tighter and denser than the warp, making it bear the weight of the pattern. These rugs usually contain many colors and generally display geometric motifs. The process permits the use of strands of different thicknesses and origins.
Traditionally, the kilim is a high-density, durable and resistant rug, even in the case of very lightweight rugs.
