Manufacture Des Tapis De Cogolin
Each Cogolin rug is a unique piece crafted by artisans with exceptional expertise. Our handlooms, equipped with Jacquard mechanisms, date from the 1880s. The Jacquard mechanism, created in 1801, combines needles, cylinders and punch-cards which function like sheet music, guiding hooks that raise threads according to the placement of holes in the cards to create textured designs and elaborate patterns.
The line Cogolin et les Mains du monde marks the return of the hand knotted rug to our collections: our collaborations with selected workshops in Nepal enable the realization of drawings from Cogolin's rich archives.
The Cogolin palette is made up of 200 colours based on 32 luminous shades. Developed exclusively for La Manufacture, the dyes are produced according to the highest environmental standards and are used on the most noble and natural materials: wool, cotton, jute, linen, silk and raffia.
