Griff 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. 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. In the Griff rug collection we find an indication of pain and disorder, of the rifts and big changes like Women’s Lib, Vietnam, The Black Panthers, and May 68 but also of the creative energy of action painting in the late sixties. Available in six standard size options, manufacturer recommends professional dry clean only.
