Working closely with Domotex, the leading trade fair for floor coverings over the last few years, I have seen thousands of carpets. See some of my posts for Domotex. I am really happy to have re-discovered Armadillo & Co through one of their photoshoots I came across, as I really love their natural rugs.
At my own home I have two pure wool rugs, a small Indian I placed in front of my kitchen cabinets, which actually is a little bit too small but I have such fond memories of visiting the designer during a Spanish design tour
The other rug is the huge wool white rug I had in my kitchen for winter, this one you have probably seen here in my living room where I made a few pictures of it: A new rug for my home, and wow it gave such warm feet. I painted the original concrete floor so you can imagine without floor heating, I definitely need a good rug in my kitchen during colder days.
After looking closely at the collections of Armadillo & Co. I am curious to see how much isolation a jute carpet from the Terra, River or Sahara collection would give. I ordered a few samples which I showed you on Instagram. I am not sure if jute is the kind of carpet for my home but I will keep you updated. The fiber’s of the Jute showed nuanced variations in shading that result in a lovely, organic texture that is said to soften up over time and easy to maintain.
Terra is an earthy everyday rug reminiscent of the grounding sensation one feels when traversing a path of sand, grass and soil. Handcrafted from fine jute, undone sophistication permeates the loose flat weave, which is elegantly finished with a tousled fringe.
One of our best-selling styles, Sahara is incredibly robust thanks to a double layer of jute woven into an effortless knit-like texture. Soft tassels on either end lend a tactile touch without overpowering smaller spaces.
Woven by hand on a vertical loom from thick yarns of hardy jute, our easygoing River rug echoes the gentle ripples and eddies of its namesake waterways for an aesthetic that balances authenticity with simplicity.
