Gandia Blasco Brown Glaoui Alexandra Rug
The Alexandra rug from the Glaoui collection is handmade using a complex manufacturing system of Moroccan origin, from which the collection takes its name. This method combines three types of different techniques: hand-knotting, flat weave and embroidery. Therefore, its design presents varying textures and changing volumes. Available in two sizes, this is the neutral version of the Alexandra model, woven with 100% virgin wool yarns in earth tones. As an original detail, the piece is accented with fringes.
The Glaoui collection includes a series of rugs that combine, in an eclectic and harmonious way, a varied style of patterns and textures. A complex traditional Moroccan technique brought to a different aesthetic dimension by designer Sandra Figuerola, who was inspired by the colors, graphics and topographies of African and Indian origin for her motives.
