Hand-made by design
At CAVALCANTI, we specialise in the development and production of exclusively designed and hand-made rugs for the contract, hospitality and residential sectors. Combining traditional textile techniques with contemporary visual concepts, we aim to provide innovative, durable and sustainable design solutions for your project. Our design combines shapes, colours and textures to create unique rugs to suit individual requirements. The quality of our rugs is the result of our commitment to outstanding standards of design and craftsmanship. We carefully select our makers and ensure our materials are of the highest quality and from sustainable sources.
Over the years CAVALCANTI has completed a wide range of UK-based and international projects for some of the world's leading architects, designers and interiors specialists.
With colours as the working theme, CAVALCANTI's rugs range from geometric abstractions to more fluid compositions where Wool, Linen, Eucalyptus and Silk are used as ‘paint’, and the frame and tufting cloth as her ‘canvas’.
All our materials are of contract quality and obtained from sustainable sources. Our New Zealand Wool, renowned for its purity of colour, is dyed in-house with contract quality dyes to the highest standards ensuring top light and colour-fastness. Our Moon range is produced with Eucalyptus fibre sourced in the EU which is of outstanding quality. Flax rugs are made with 100% Italian linen, a natural fibre of the highest quality, renowned for its impressive durability.
At CAVALCANTI we pride ourselves in the expertise of our craftspeople. Our rugs and carpets are produced using three different techniques: weaving, tufting and knotting.
Our woven collection, FlatWeaves, is hand-made in Portugal with pure New Zealand wool. Our hand tufted rugs can be made with Wool, Moon (Eucalyptus fibre) and Flax (Linen). Our hand-knotted rugs are fully certified by the GoodWeave Foundation.
