Inspired by Bravoure, a high pile rug made up of yarns in various thicknesses and expressive colours, Silhouette combines the classic Bravoure yarns with a generous and playful border.

Dyed in individual strands, the yarns are tufted to create an organic surface, an intricate fusion of shades. Subtle details and delicate contrasts emerge from the surface of the rug as the light or perspective of the viewer changes.

The 6cm long fringes have four melanges that run from one colour to another, overlapping and providing an inviting visible edge.
