Railway rug, black/natural

By Woodnotes


  • Description

    The Woodnotes rug collection contains 64 designs created out of the harmonious combinations of 10 patterns and 10 colour alternatives. The material is paper yarn (86 %) and cotton (14 %). Paper yarn does not gather dust or dirt, an important feature particularly for those allergic to dust. Woodnotes rugs tolerate humid conditions well and, due to the tight weave, they do not ignite easily. Woodnotes rugs are supplied with soil-repellent treatment, which makes it easy to care for them.

    Woodnotes domestic rugs are designed for normal home use and they come in six regular sizes: 90 x 200 cm, 120 x 200 cm, 140 x 200 cm, 160 x 230 cm, 200 x 300 cm and 250 x 350 cm. The widths are fixed, but lengths other than those listed can be supplied to order. Rugs with edging are designed primarily for domestic use and they are supplied to order – also in special sizes in addition to the standard ones. The max. width is 330 cm and the max. length 10 m. Thanks to edging and double-sided soil-repellent treatment, rugs with edging are reversable.

    Contract rugs are primarily designed for demanding use, such as for public premises and offices. Woodnotes contract rugs are supplied with backing, edging and soil-repellent treatment. Backing gives strength and body to the rug and prevents the rug from sliding. Woodnotes contract rugs are supplied to order upto the max. width of 330 cm and the max. length of 10 m.

    Woodnotes carpets have been awarded several international recognitions, such as good Design Award 2003 (Japan), Interior Innovation Award 2003 (Germany), Red Dot Award 2004 (Germany) and Design & Decoration Award 2004 (UK). Woodnotes rugs are featured in the Design and Architecture Collection of the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York.

    Ritva Puotila

    Ritva Puotila, artistic director of Woodnotes, founded Woodnotes with her son Mikko Puotila in 1987, basing the company on the concept of paper yarn. Puotila says that paper has properties that differ fundamentally from the other fibres she use: its lightness and rustling, its clean natural colour when unbleached, its whiteness and the glow of colour. Ritva Puotila has raised the status of this traditional Finnish material to a new level, that of designer textile. From the start, the Woodnotes collection consisted of a broad range of interior textiles, from carpets and blinds to upholstery and small objects for the home. Woodnotes' foray into this new field was rewarded immediately during its founding year with the French Oscar Prize, continuing with further recognition in subsequent years.
