What materials do you use to weave your carpets, do you have different traditional weaving techniques, and what do you enjoy the most in the manufacturing process?
Célia // The essence of these rugs was to recycle materials, people used old clothes to produce them, now is not so often to use your own rags, and weavers started to buy all kind of textile leftovers from factories. We do the same, although we only work with 100% cotton, in order to maintain quality.
I remember always having rag rugs around our house, family and friends, their are very beautiful in their own way, a lot of textures, colors and materials. GUR takes me back to that time, my childhood, to run and stumble on them, to wash them with hoses outside in my grandma terrace during the summer playing in the water with sister, these rugs were part of our live.
Also brings me much joy to be available to work with so many nice and talented artists and to maintain this tradition alive making it more attractive to other publics.
