With the correct maintenance the premium carpet quality can be preserved for many years, and you can look forward to a positive carpet experience for a long time.

Our carpets are manufactured in 80/20 wool/nylon blend using pre- or undyed yarn.

Pre-dyed Yarns
Pre-dyed yarns offer the advantage of preserving vibrant and saturated colours over time. Due to the colour being consistent throughout the entire carpet fibre, ensuring a high degree of colour fastness.

These pre dyed options are ideal for those who desire long lasting, rich hues that will not fade easily.

Undyed Yarns
Undyed yarns are developed by blending the raw wool from sheep of various colours, resulting in a beautiful range of colours This carpet solution is called Colortec ORIGIN. The colour is mixed before the spinning process. It is a very meticulous process, done by hand, to ensure the right nuance.

Whether you prefer the enduring brilliance of pre-dyed yarns or the natural and diverse style of undyed yarns, we will help you to define which carpet solution will be the best in your project.
