Deep knowledge of textile art, exquisite craftsmanship, fine yarns and an exclusive palette of 1200 shades with which to experiment with innovative textures identify Battilossi, a Turin-based company engaged in a never-ending design research aimed at passing on the millenarian tradition of oriental rugs, projecting it into contemporary design. For 30 years, Battilossi contemporary rugs have been the result of a refined intertwining between East and West where Italian creativity, style, know-how and culture are combined with the ancient experience of the master craftsmen of Nepal and Pakistan, in a continuous exchange of connoisseurship and in mutual evolution.
The company is one of the few in this field that can make use of two factories, each one expressing the tradition of the country of origin: in Kathmandu, Nepal, sophisticated hand-knotted and handwoven carpets are made in wool, silk, linen, nettle and other natural materials, and in Lahore, Pakistan, the most innovative textures are developed, original techniques with the precious wool from Ghazni, in Afghanistan.
Manufacturing excellence, chromatic harmony and calibrated elegance are the leitmotif of the Battilossi proposal, which is composed around collections that, by mixing traditional techniques, seek out new creative outcomes and unique bespoke rugs, created to meet the specific needs either for interior or artist.
