Handmade square wool rug with geometric shapes, part of the Romanian Moods Collection.
Manufacturer: Dare to Rug
Design by Andreea Batros & Flavia Scînteanu
Dare to Rug’s first collection, ROMANIAN MOODS, is a collage of feelings overlapped with traditional Romanian patterns. Each rug is inspired by the aesthetics of different historical regions in Romania - Oltenia, Maramureș, Transilvania, Moldova, Basarabia, Bucovina, Dobrogea, Muntenia, Banat and Crișana.
All the designs come from a process of reinterpreting the patterns using the designers’ creative filter in order to give them a contemporary feel. They used colours to encompass a modern look and powerful emotions.
Inspired by the aesthetics and the traditional patterns of the Romanian region of Basarabia. Puzzled has so many implications: from the complexity of the traditional Romanian patterns that adorn Basarabia’s buildings, national costumes or rugs, to the region’s complicated history. Basarabia has offered us some of the most elaborate patterns, that have evolved into a beautiful design. Traditional rugs from Basarabia are real pieces of art, decorated with appealing colours and intricate motives. Dare to Rug has refined these motives and has used a soft colour palette that will remind of the strength and calm that Basarabia’s people have shown throughout history.
