BEHIND THE DESIGN
PERENNIALS  RUGS

A cutting-edge coloring technique, combined with a fervent attention to
detail, have made Perennials   textiles designer favorites for more than a
decade. That’s why we chose to collaborate with the textile company for
our latest outdoor rug collection.

COLOR

The design of a rug begins with
selecting a color – the Perennials
team spends months, even years,
scouring natural and man-made
pigments to find the perfect hues.

 

Colors

 

 

Our design team wanted
nature-inspired shades of blue, grey
and green. Each color is tested for
performance and colorfastness before
being added to the fibers.

 

Fiber

 

FIBER

While other outdoor rugs use
fibers with color applied as an
exterior coating, each Perennials
rug begins with 100% solution-dyed
acrylic fibers that are injected
with the color pigments. This
unique dyeing process is what
ensures the colors stay vibrant
season after season.

 

Colors

The solution-dyed acrylic fibers
are then wound onto spools and
taken to a weaving loom, where
colors are selected based on the
pattern each artisan will follow on
their weaving map.

WEAVING

Our rugs are woven at a weaving
workshop in India on traditional
Punja looms, which allow the
artisans to weave and precisely
control the fibers and create
detailed patterns.

 

Colors

 

The hand-weaving technique
takes more time than other
methods, but transforms the
durable acrylic fibers into a weave
that re-creates the beauty and
softness of natural cotton.
