General product information:
Rui uses specially developed weft threads for his carpets, which he respins from recycled cotton yarns from the local textile industry. This carpet is particularly robust due to the dense weave.
Rui’s rugs are all traditionally handmade and due to small deviations in shape and color each one is a unique piece.
*Since our rugs are made from fabric scraps from the Portuguese fashion industry, it may happen that other fibers are mixed in with the main ingredient, cotton. Therefore, we specify a mixing ratio of 80% cotton and 20% other materials. However, in most cases it is 100% cotton.
Machine washable up to a maximum of 30°C. Since it is a natural product, a little shrinkage after the first wash is possible.

At the age of 16, Rui started working for one of the largest carpet factories in the country. When it had to close due to the economic crisis 20 years later, he had the opportunity to buy a few of the looms and start his own production.
His carpets are made from recycled cotton yarns from the local textile industry which he spins himself. Unlike traditionally woven carpets, he uses jute fibers as the basic structure, which makes the carpets very durable. They are all woven by hand - out of his conviction. Rui is one of our first producers and our collaboration has developed steadily over the last few years.
We love the enthusiasm with which Rui takes our ideas and processes them. We immediately felt that weaving is not only his job, but rather his passion.
