Product Watch: Legend, ege carpets

Legend – a richly textured textile inspired by tree bark

Forests are the setting for many folktales and legends. In these dark, mysterious places, we can lose ourselves then stumble upon their hidden secrets. The saturated smell of the ground, the flashes of light in small open spaces and the mist surrounding it all are fascinating yet intriguing. However, the magic of the ancient woodlands lies in our connection with trees as they connect worlds and represent life and wisdom.

Legend is a contemporary interpretation of folklore and the enchanted wood. Its rich multi-level loop texture, inspired by tree bark, lies under a blanket of simple organic patterns and brings the layered, organic structures of the forest floor into the commercial interior.


Three coordinated designs

Through the designs Rune, Myth and Spell the collection is organised into three co-ordinated tonal groups to give many possible colour combinations. Modular and broadloom options offer practical possibilities for coordination and though the designs stand beautifully alone they can be used together to create neighbourhoods, way-finding and hidden walls.


Rune has its roots in rituals and symbolic marks with a hand-drawn quality. Metal amulets and ornaments combined with the mossy covered bark of the silver birch tree have inspired the character and colour palette of Rune, which comes in nine light shades.


Myth takes inspiration from ancient forests. The riven texture of tree bark plays with the abstract framework of a dense woodland. Inspired by the darker bark of the ash, Myth comes in nine mid-toned shades.


Spell is from the dark side. Flashes of bright alchemic colour reach through the darkness and dissolve across the floor. Spell is available in nine shadowy colours infused with cobalt, peridot and quicksilver.

A green story

Legend is a truly green choice as the tile backing is produced from used water bottles that are recycled into our patented and long lasting Ecotrust felt backing with great acoustic performance. The backing is Cradle to CradleTM certified as well. The ECONYL® yarns are produced from used fishing nets that are reborn as strong and hardwearing yarn for textile flooring.


Mix and match with other ege collections

Play with colours and materials to create that trendy tactile feeling. No matter if you match tone in tone nuances or contrasting shades you get a truly unique mash up of colours that changes your perception of the room. Alternatively, combine Legend with a soft and shaggy textile flooring to create the special look and feel that can be fully explored with the touch of your fingers. Let your imagination run wild.
