Two designs from Ege Carpets have been created using the patented Ecotrust backing made from recycled water bottles. The bottles are transformed into a strong felt material that holds acoustic benefits as well as being an eco-friendly option for designers.
The two collections from Ege Carpets are Una Mikado – a dramatic carpet available as tiles or broadloom and Epoca Rustic – a flat-woven surface highlighting perfectly imperfect craftsmanship.Una Mikado’s design is an interesting stick pattern inspired by the Japanese confectionery, Mikado – A thin biscuit stick covered in chocolate. The visual effect is reminiscent of a spiders web and is very captivating for the eye. Ege uses a ‘cut & loop’ technology that gives the collection it’s special 3D effect, with a loop pile for the background and a cut pile for the Mikado sticks, which are dropped in a quirky random pattern.
You have the option to be bold and use contrasting colours or you can go minimalist with tone-on-tone colour schemes.Epoca Rustic is a flat-woven surface that has all the beautiful irregularities that comes with age-old craftsmanship but still achieves a raw, high quality look. This collection comes in 32 different colours, that are inspired by natural materials such as stone, bark and soil. If you are after a bolder look, there are also brighter offerings available in Aqua, mustard and raspberry.
Both of these collections are Cradle to Cradle Certified TM.
