DyeLab

DyeLab

Dyelab, which earned a Gold Award for modular carpet in this year’s Best of NeoCon competition, explores the natural dyes derived from madder root, indigo and chochineal. The ancient wash and dye techniques are reinterpreted, and fabric is woven, twisted, bundled, dipped and dyed. The results are unpredictable – the colour discoveries surreal.

Light Series

Light Series (top image) is inspired by perpetual motion. It captures vivid wavelengths of colour in varied scale and intensity. Shards of colour and jabs of light are infused throughout the collection.

Natural Palette

Natural Palette

Natural Palette experiments with colour extracted from rust, logwood and onion skins.

Intricate weavings of exquisite, naturally dyed fibre inform the patterns, while delicate lustre and heavy gauge filaments with subtle flecks provide saturated gradations.

This collection is manufactured with a new tufting innovation called Plush Pile Technology, which creates exaggerated loop textures interwoven into a felted cut field.

Unearthed

Unearthed

Designed specially for healthcare spaces, Unearthed takes its inspiration from living earth – raw mineral patterning, shimmering layers and rocky textures.

The collection holds up well against soil and wear and the special stresses of the healthcare environment.

All four collections are Cradle to Cradle Silver Certified and use premium Eco Solution Q fiber with 45 percent recycled content. All tiles feature EcoWorx backing, which is completely recyclable, PVC-free, and contain 44 percent recycled content.
