Working in partnership with the artisan weaver of rugs, Célia Esteves – owner of the Portuguese brand GUR – invites designer Matthias Lehner to develop a new rug for his brand O CÉU.
The piece is made with a very specific technique using the same materials with the authenticity of a traditional kitchen rug but with a modern twist.
The design is inspired by the traditional AZULEJOS – ceramic tiles of Portugal. The woven motive displays the classic, hand-painted tile that can also be found at the O CÉU collection.
It’s long fringes, continuing the diagonal graphic on the one side and highlighting with a fresh colour tone on the other side.
All rugs by GUR are sustainably handmade, held in a traditional handloom, with recycled canvas, embossed technique or over layers of colours, finishing with basic sewing.
