OBEETEE Carpets, a renowned rug manufacturer, collaborated with Tissage to showcase their expertise and knowhow of rug making, with the latest Impasto collection inspired by 20th century artworks.
May 15, 2023: A leading Indian rug manufacturer, OBEETEE Carpets, has collaborated with another rug atelier, Tissage, to create an aesthetic collection, Impasto, inspired by 20th century artworks. Both companies are well-known producers of handcrafted rugs, and this team-up is a combination of their exquisite craftsmanship.
The collection is inspired by the impasto painting technique, in which paint is applied thickly to the canvas to produce a three-dimensional effect that gives texture and depth to the painting. The impasto painting technique was popularized by artists like Vincent Van Gogh in the 20th century, and the impasto rug line follows the same technique to give texture and depth in the rug. Each design pattern employs multiple layers of motifs that enhance the rug’s three-dimensional appearance.
To bring an extra dose of luxury, the design team beautifully weaves a shimmery mix of various kinds of wools and silks and uses a new innovative cross-knitting technique to simulate extra depth in certain areas. Motifs used in this rug are inspired by Japanese charcoal art.
By spinning the beautiful art forms of the 20th century into rugs, the designs strive to bring an artistic appeal to your homes. The collection is an illustration of the level of ingenuity and inventiveness possible in the rug making industry.
Speaking about the collection, Ms. Angelique Dhama, CEO, OBEETEE Carpets - Retail, said, “The Impasto collection is a beautiful and unique addition to our range of handmade rugs. It is a true testament to the creativity and innovation that can be achieved in the world of rug making. We are delighted to collaborate with Tissage to bring this stunning collection to our customers. The collection’s unique design philosophy uses the latest techniques to create a stunning and distinctive collection that will make a statement in any space. The Impasto collection is a tribute to the creativity and craftsmanship of artisans, and we are excited to showcase it at our Delhi showroom.”
