The _Story

Harmony and Balance

ESTIVAL rekindles the naive expression of Mexican art and culture. Hand-painted water- colour blossoms and leaves frolic over the woven patina. This is achieved through transfer printing on a jacquard woven base.

Whether colourful and bold or elegant and discreet, the flat-weave rugs by Christian Fischbacher are an expression of experience and flair. The Prêt-à-Porter rugs are statement pieces which redefine their surroundings. Their soft pile exudes warmth and well-being. Modernity meets traditional craftsmanship – chenille and fancy yarns in an intricate jacquard weave create suppleness and deep rich colour. The studio uses plain-coloured cotton-chenille, and chenille yarn blends which are finely woven to create unexpected depth in their designs. Some of the rugs employ transfer printing to enhance their elegant motifs. The rug collection patterns are drawn from the rich mix of Christian Fischbacher signature designs as well as from the newest collection.

The _Construction

Jacquard

Invented in 1804 by Frenchman, Joseph Marie Jacquard, the original Jacquard head simplified the process of machine making complex patterns through a number of punched cards ‘chained' together in sequence. Each card featured a number of punched holes to form a single row of the pattern and the chain could be as long as needed, helping Jacquard equipped looms to produce some really fantastic and surprisingly intricate designs. Now with digital control, modern-day electronic Jacquard machines are computer-controlled, significantly reducing the downtime with changing traditional card machines, avoiding the necessity for repeats and showing almost complete versatility in creating pattern. By far the best way to machine make rugs, electronic Jacquard rug making speeds-up production dramatically, helping to bring beautiful design at a really competitive price point.
