Weaving - the act of interlacing two threads (warp and weft) at right angles to each other - is one of the oldest techniques used to manufacture flat textiles, including rugs. What makes a hand-woven rug so special is the added benefit that it can be used on both sides. PAULIG Teppichweberei sees itself as a modern-day torchbearer for the cottage industry of weavers that went before it. From the shearing of the sheep to the finished rug, from dyeing and spinning the wool to weaving and knotting it - everything from start to finish in the production of PAULIG rugs is done by hand. This closed value chain offers both producer and customer alike the certainty of outstanding quality that meets a high ecological standard.

At DOMOTEX 2019, PAULIG Teppichweberei GmbH is exhibiting its Africa collection, which recalls the vast landscapes of the great continent, the cradle of humankind. Numerous unusual structures and impressive colors come together in this collection to create extravagant rugs with sophisticated haptics. Africa TIko E, for example, is a flat-woven design rug that’s the perfect match for any interior, thanks to its simplicity. What makes it really special is the black warp that highlights the structure of the rug with striking elegance. The perfect partner to this work of art is the Africa Sansibar cushion from PAULIG. Like all the other products in the Africa collection, the cushion can be customized using the Africa color palette. The twisted yarn, spun from the finest New Zealand wool, ensures all Africa products are reassuringly robust and that the rugs can be used on both sides.
