HISTORY & HERITAGE

THE
JOURNEY

In 2010, the third generation family firm, diversified to create a contemporary take on the traditional, hand-knotted rugs which took inspiration from abstract art and thus was born ‘Tissage’.

Tisaage in French means ‘to weave’. It is our way of paying homage to the classical art of hand-knotted rug-making.

Our passion for the craft and quality is a result of the time we’ve spent perfecting all the little nuances.

Over the course of these forty years, we have come to be represented by high-end specialty boutiques and interior designers around the world.

Our inspiration comes from remote corners of the world, dressed in traditional and contemporary art forms created by artists who consistently push boundaries.

Our aesthetic is enriched by age-old proprietary techniques and unique blends of wool, silk, mohair, linen, cashmere and other luxurious materials.
