Alternating rows of zig zags and diamond motifs add texture and visual interest to the vibrant spectrum of hues on this flat weave wool rug from Morocco. Evocative of the exaggerated geometry and linear nature of ancient Bedouin designs, this unique piece translates traditional weaving into a contemporary context - an exotic touch for the modern interior.
Handwoven from wool in Jordan, this Petra flat weave rug combines the beauty of Petra's rugged landscapes with the vibrant, captivating colors of tribal weavings. Nomadic Bedouin weavers derive their inspiration from the cultural and spiritual symbols passed down through the generations, incorporating ancient art and traditional techniques into their craft. Each flat weave is handwoven on a narrow loom in individual strips, which are then combined to produce these unique masterpieces.

This GUR special edition is dedicated to the modernist designer Sebastiao Rodrigues. Rodrigues work had a great impact in the portuguese design since the 40's, having a great balance between innovation and multiplicity. Since he was a big reference to us, we've decided to pay him some tribute and invite our good friend and great designer Marcia Novais to join us. All the GUR are handmade, held in a traditional handloom, with raw tirela (rag), finishing with basic sewing. rugbygur.com
