Carpet Runner - Carolina

Sale price79,20 € Regular price99,00 €
color: Naturweiß-Rosé
The hand-woven cotton rug is quite thick and keeps your feet particularly warm. The rug has been woven from recycled yarn in natural white, to which colored yarn has been added at discreet intervals. This gives the rug a bright and restrained appearance, but on closer inspection it looks exciting and lively.

It was made by Sr Rui, one of our very first producers. We now have a lot in common with him and his small, beautiful weaving mill in the north of Portugal. He produces all onomao rugs, which are woven from fabric and yarn remnants from the Portuguese fashion industry.

Die Teppichweberei von Senhor Rui

Mit 16 Jahren fing Rui an für eine der größten Teppichfabriken des Landes zu arbeiten. Als diese im Zuge der Wirtschaftskrise 20 Jahre später schließen musste, hatte er die Möglichkeit ein paar der Webstühle zu kaufen und eine eigene Produktion zu starten.

Seine Teppiche werden aus wiederverwendeten Baumwollgarnen der lokalen Textilindustrie hergestellt, die er selbst spinnt.

Anders als bei den traditionell gewebten Teppichen, verwendet er als Grundstruktur Jutefasern, wodurch die Teppiche sehr robust werden. Gewebt werden sie aus Überzeugung in Handarbeit. Rui gehört zu unseren ersten Produzenten und unsere Zusammenarbeit hat sich über die letzten Jahre stetig entfaltet.

Wir lieben es, mit welcher Begeisterung Rui unsere Ideen aufnimmt und verarbeitet. Wir spürten sofort, dass das Weben nicht nur sein Job, sondern vielmehr seine Leidenschaft ist.

How your home affects your well-being

We know the effect of rooms on our well-being from an early age: We enter a room and feel comfortable - or not. Whether a room makes us feel good depends on countless factors. Some of them we can influence ourselves.

We spend more than 60 percent of our lives within our own four walls. That's quite a lot of time - and since home offices have become part of everyday working life for many people, it has increased even more.

One of the factors that influence us is the smell of a home. If it smells homely, then we also feel comfortable. The smell of warm pancakes, for example, can remind us of childhood and family - we feel safe. A crackling beeswax candle, on the other hand, radiates a calming effect. Another influencing factor is the quality of the air: plants clean it and also provide oxygen, and the eye is also pleased by the sight of fresh flowers in a vase. Likewise, warmth can increase the sense of well-being: snugly wrapped in a warming wool blanket, it is easy to relax, the feet in turn are happy about the carpet next to the bed. Finally, the whole person is happy about a beautifully laid table that radiates joie de vivre and quality. Thus, with the little things we can do great things and beautify our lives.
