Mood-Evoking Mystique Rugs

Youthful and effortless, our Mystique Collection takes the traditional art of rug making to the next level. As color has the unique power to affect our emotions and set the tone within a space, it is this ever-changing relationship between color and mood that define our Mystique line of rugs. From soft neutral tones to rich crimsons and ocean blues, Mystique designs play with subtle gradient shades that gradually shift between light and dark hues. These mood-evoking color palettes reflect everyday feelings of passion, sorrow, joy and romance by simulating the ebbs and flows of our human experience.

From afar the designs appear almost solid, however upon closer inspection one can see organized groupings of small geometric shapes such as lattices, squares, zig-zags that blend into one-another to create an intricate and balanced pattern.

Extremely textural, these wide-knotted rugs offer a soft and substantial feel underfoot. Every carpet is expertly crafted with a thick blend of hand-spun wools from New Zealand and Europe. Each rug is meticulously woven with thick hand-spun yarn that is evenly sheared to a consistent pile height, making them undeniably plush.

With subtle blended colors and patterns, Mystique rugs can easily be incorporated into contemporary or transitional interiors as a unifying element that ties the whole room together.

The Inspiration:

Playing with decorative floral elements, the design inspiration behind the Ancient Collection comes from ancient Persian textiles and antiques.

Intrigued by the alluring mystique of old paintings and vintage relics, our designers sought to create new rugs with an aged appearance that felt both classically Persian and undeniably modern.

Olympia, Grey-Gold & Argos, Cream Grey

The Process:

To produce a timeworn finish to these carpets without compromising the quality, our rug making team had to discover a method that could achieve the desired faded look without physically damaging the carpet. Rather than using harsh destructive chemicals, the secret recipe came unexpectedly in the form of sand. The unique process known as sandblasting involves strategically blasting the carpet with sand at a highly pressurized rate to evenly reduce its pile height. Sandblasting is 100% natural and ensures that the strength and character of the fibers remain intact and that the color of the dyed yarn is preserved. The method produces a multi-tonal effect of faded soft shades and dramatic saturated colors that artfully blend into each other to create a beautiful antique finish.

Argos, Ivory-Silver


The Shibori Collection

We are delighted to introduce our stylish new Shibori Rug Collection this season. The inspiration for this dynamic line comes from the ancient Japanese dyeing technique of Shibori, best identified by its fluid assortment of soft blurry-edged shapes. These original designs are crafted with high-quality wool, which is dyed by hand to deep saturated indigo hues that evoke the ocean and feelings of tranquility.

Japanese Shirbori techniques can be dated back to the 8th century as a method for dying textiles and kimonos. In order to achieve the desired tie-dyed look, the material was first twisted, crumpled and folded in a number of different ways and then dyed in rich indigo blue hues. Areas of the cloth were bound with dye resistant materials that would preserve areas of white in contrast with the indigo. With infinite variations to explore, this process has inspired designers all over the world to create new patterns and explore the endless possibilities of Shibori.

Our Shibori Collection celebrates this captivating art form. Due to their unique patterns and rich blue color palette, these versatile carpets can easily be incorporated into a number of contemporary interiors or function as a standout piece within a room. Sporting an array of inviting indigo shades, these stylish designs will add a sense of elegance and serenity to a space. As with all things handmade, each rug varies slightly in tone and style, further adding to the unique personality indicative of the traditional Shibori textiles.

Spotlight on Sari Silk

Move over grey and taupe! Bright and bold colors are making a comeback in the world of design. At SAMAD, we are now offering a range of vibrant hand-knotted rugs made with recycled sari silk, an eco-friendly material that is sure to make a statement in your interior.

Eco-Friendly Rug Making

Sari silk is a fabric made in India from recycled hand-spun silk leftover from sari making process. Rather than throwing out the extra scraps of the beautiful unused silk, sari manufactures have started sending their production “waste” to co-ops who hand-spin the raw silk into new spools of colorful yarn. The fibers are spun into thick or thin strands of yarn, which ultimately determine the knot-count and overall look of the finished rug. As with all handmade crafts, the yarn possesses a dynamic uneven texture that only adds to its personality and appeal. Unlike temperamental man-made fibers such as viscous, sari silk is spun from silk worms, which produce a fiber unparalleled in softness and durability. Woven together with high-quality New Zealand wool, each sari silk carpet is a unique piece of art that will last for years to come.

The Seville Collection is inspired by the striking landscapes of Andalusia, Spain and its celebrated Moorish imagery and artwork. With Mediterranean blues and deep taupes embellished with vibrant fuchsias and turquoises, these colorful designs evoke the lively spirit of Seville. The intricate blending of long staple wools and sari silk provide a unique multi-textural quality and sheen to this dynamic collection.

A punch of color can add a youthful touch that will embolden a neutral interior, without compromising the elegance of the space.
