Chalet is a medium to low pile, extremely high end piece. This style is one of the most luxurious types of rugs in the world. The pile is shaved down after weaving for a lower pile and wonderful feel.
New Beni Mirit rugs have recently increased in North-American popularity (due to various retail stores mass production); however the hand-woven masterpieces from Morocco are truly timeless. Traditionally made by Berber tribes in the Atlas Mountains as bed coverings and throws, these carpets are soft and perfect for burying toes. This style tends to be high pile, monochromatic (although may have color accents), and geometric in pattern.
Our inventory consists of handmade vintage artifacts, many of which have lived a life prior to purchase. Edges that aren't straight, natural fading and small repairs are typical characteristics, while additional imperfections and wear patterns may be evident. We believe these visual elements only enhance their story of being truly unique treasures. They have stood the test of time. These items are stunning artistic masterpieces for the home.
