A new design for the Mad Men collection, Cracks shows a surface of cracked ice, as on the ice rink of Rockefeller Square. It also represents the world below the surface, the deep blue of the abyss, the darkness of the mineshaft with the lode of gold at the bottom, or the far corners of a pinewood forest. The Mad Men rug collection is inspired by the Mad-ison Men who were the golden boys of the Sixties, dreaming up the images of the iconic brands of the USA, Louis de Poortere has created a new collection of “Vintage Sixties” rugs. A mix of straight and broken lines, of dull and shining yarns, of smooth and ragged pencil strokes. Cracks rugs are machine woven on jacquard Wilton looms by Louis de Poortere using 85% cotton chenille and 15% glossy polyester yarns. Over a century of skill and craftsmanship is woven into each rug with multiple layers of texture, distressed areas and intricate stitching detail to give a true vintage and aged appearance. Woven in a 3 mm thick flat weave construction, each piece is hand finished with reinforced corners. Available in four standard size options, manufacturer recommends professional dry clean only.
