Romanian Traditional Rugs


ROMANIAN TRADITIONAL RUGS                                                                           
Our Romanian Traditional Rugs

Imagine the golden glow of the sun against the soft pastel houses, residents going about their business, tending the chickens, their vegetable gardens or sitting on the front porch. In villages and in the countryside, on lands dominated by ancestral castles, old fortresses and peaceful monasteries, life moves a little slower and follows ancient rhythms of tradition and culture.
 

Here is the place where our Romanian Traditional Rugs are born.

 

While technically textiles, rugs deserve their own category, because no other textiles so dramatically reflect their regions of origin. As varied as different areas' attractions, so too are the rugs that are displayed on surrounding fences. Most are flat-weave kilims, probably introduced centuries ago by the controlling Ottoman Empire.

Each of our Romanian kilims can be considered an original creation, with vegetal and zoo morphs d?or having some imported motifs that are combined with the original tradition of South Oltenia.
     

Eco Rugs - Love of Nature

The ancient village artisans created  the rugs  as they wished to look like . Each pattern contains combined motifs of  birds, seeds, trees and flowers which the artisans considered to be essential elements of life and nature.

Each artisan knew the technique and the specific types of canvas of that place. The patterns were transmitted from generation to generation and were continuously improved till our days. They did not  use drawings but cooperation of ideas.

To create  our  rugs we use selected eco friendly wool productions. The Turcana wool is the most appropriate material because of its breed with long, brassy and rough thread.
