A Février Rug is the story of modern art infused with traditional expertise to create a truly unique piece. Company aspires to create a Rug that is original and personalized without compromising on quality and aesthetics. Taking inspiration from his work at the production facility for Hérmes in Kathmandu, added to his undying love for patterns, the French designer Florian Pretet came up with Fevrier Rugs. The idea is to replicate his designs onto a rug precisely as it is on paper, which is then meticulously hand knotted in the Himalayas using age-old techniques passed down over generations.
Every Février Rug is the result of the combined effort of more than 50 people directly involved in creating the piece. The designs are mostly hand drawn by the designer, which is then hand knotted in Nepal by expert weavers. All the procedures from shearing sheep wool to the final washing are done by hand. The wool used to make the Rugs is collected in Tibet and the silk is of the finest quality, brought from China. Février Rugs are unique in the fact that no machines or chemicals are involved in their production to preserve their authenticity and natural beauty. Most of our rugs are 120-knot quality, which passes as finer and higher quality than a standard rug. The average time it takes to create one rug is 16 weeks or longer depending on the pattern.
