Inspired by Classic Sixties Design with the Louis de Poortere touch.
The Jacobs Ladder Rug Collection stands for the uneasy but exhilarating climb on the social ladder. It is the way the advertising industry pictures society: More, better, higher, richer … But the climb can be tricky even if the rungs are glittering. Part of the Mad Men rug collection, 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. Jacobs Ladder 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.
