Armani/Casa represents an ideal for living, a dream of the perfect environment: an intimate and sophisticated space in which to relax, unwind and entertain guests, surrounded by beauty manifested through furniture and objects for the home. In this context, carpets can play a significant role in the creation of a special atmosphere. This new Armani/Casa rug collection is completely handmade and manufactured mainly by Tibetan artisans in simple workshops in the plateaus of Katmandu, in Nepal.
Being art and artisan craftsmanship a closely interwoven duality in Armani/Casa‘s vision of interior decoration, these rugs employ a technique of hand-knotting, an ancient way to manufacture carpets that requires skill and time. Every single weave is knotted and tied, with extraordinary results in terms of brightness of colour. This process is extremely labour intensive and requires great skill and dedication from the weavers. The outcome is a unique piece that – thanks to the extraordinary handcraft that has gone into its production – is reminiscent of a work of art.
