"The Capitone rug is an attempt to translate a technique I love in furniture upholstery into a rug. It's an unusual yet simple concept that brings to the eye feelings of warmth and comfort. It comes from a home and a heart..." Jaime Hayon.
Capitone is created by hand knotting a very deep piled plain rug which is then masterfully carved by hand to form a three dimensional pattern.
This rug is entirely handmade, from the spinning of the wool to the weaving on the loom. It is unique, and has been crafted by weavers in the Kathmandu area, whose skills have been passed down through many generations. We use only the highest quality wool for our rugs, that of the Tibetan sheep, for its durability, rich texture and subtle colour variation. To this we have added the vision of a world class designer, and the result is a hand knotted contemporary rug of extraordinary beauty, which will itself become an heirloom to be treasured for years to come.
