Paulig: Organic shapes: inviting and relaxing
You don’t really even need a sofa: the Salsa Lounge seat cushions with round carpets Salsa Jamaica and Salsa Tortuga make the floor itself an inviting place to relax. Made of 100% New Zealand wool, these soft pieces give you a real close-to-nature feel, with trendy, organic shapes and structures that appeal to the senses, making your home more homey and cosy.
These carpets are always made-to-measure in diameters up to 5 metres, their thick yarns braided and sewn by hand. Made of a slightly finer yarn, the Salsa Tortuga carpet is flatter than Salsa Jamaica. The Salsa Lounge seat cushions come in sizes S, M and L, and all products can be had either as unicolour or in a combination of up to three different colours.
Theo Keller: Miami: Stylish Wool
“Miami” carpets have an elegantly reserved yet intriguing look with their fine tone-on-tone stripe pattern and colour accent at the ends. These fine carpets of flat handloom quality are made of viscose and New Zealand wool. They are environmentally friendly, being made of materials that are both renewable and 100% degradable. The new wool in the carpets makes them robust, and beyond that also provides automatic, natural air cleaning thanks to antistatic properties that bind airborne impurities, positively influencing the room climate. Available in six sizes ranging from 70 x 140 up to 190 x 290 cm.
Note for buyers: wool carpets lose some of their extra wool fibres at first, which subsides after regular hoovering and being tread on. The carpet pile becomes more stable in this process and the wool attains a more brilliant look.

Artisan Project: Natural wool textures
The inspiration behind Artisan Project‘s Shepherd‘s Rug was Nina Mohammad-Galbert‘s love of the array of natural wool textures and shades. “Rather than contrive a pattern, I wanted the wool to create the story in the carpet,” says the creative director of the company, which is located in Fez, Morocco, and also offers bespoke collections. The rugs are handmade by women‘s weaving cooperatives.
Reuber Henning: hand-woven carpets in „painterly“ colours
Twill – that is the name of the new, slightly mottled hand-woven carpet collection by Reuber Henning. It was inspired by the Italian still life painter Giorgio Morandi, who worked exclusively with a few subtle shades of colour such as pastel orange, coral, ochre and brown tones to create a harmonious, yet unusual atmosphere.
Theo Keller: Beni Ouarain – subtle, colourful and unique
The Moroccan Beni Ouarain has many faces, and Theo Keller shows several of them in its product range. The classic version is beige, with a characteristic diamond pattern, and hand-knotted from pure new wool. Another version has the same design, is made from the same material, but is much more eye-catching with its deep berry or purple colouring.
