Unsere Teppichweberei von Senhor Rui

The rug factory from Senhor Rui

At the age of 16, Rui started working for one of the largest rug factories in the country. 20 years later the factory had to close due to the economy crisis and Rui had the opportunity to buy some of the looms and start his own production.

His carpets are made from reused cotton yarns from the local textile industry, which he spins himself. Unlike the traditionally woven carpets the basic structure of his rugs is jute fibers as the basic structure, which makes the carpets very robust. They are woven by hand out of conviction.

We love the enthusiasm with which Rui absorbs and processes our ideas. We immediately felt that weaving is not only his job, but rather his passion.
