Opera

Noble, with an unequalled subtle lustre. The handmade mohair OPERA rug represents the pinnacle of luxury and embodies the culmination of years of research and expertise. The OPERA journey has taken us on an extensive exploration, sourcing the finest of mohair fibres from the Angora goats thriving in the semi-arid South African landscapes, and traversing Europe and the Far East, to uncover the most exceptional hand-knotting technique in Nepal. In our pursuit of perfection, we have chosen to craft our handmade rugs in small, artisanal locations, embracing a commitment to ethical craftsmanship. With its luxurious silken sheen, the mohair rugs are not only exquisite, but also surpass silk in practicality, thanks to their washability. The remarkable fiber resilience makes removing imprints a breeze. An alluring collection comprising 24 colours with customisable options in various shapes and sizes.

Where to buy

Mohair Wool

The strong, elegant glossy mohair yarn is acquired from the coat of angora goats that are raised in an ecologically responsible manner in the wonderful South African nature area "Karoo".

Hand knotting

Purely traditional and disarmingly honest. Everything up to the final knotting of the carpet is done by hand.

It’s 10:11 PM in Kathmandu

Purely traditional and disarmingly honest. Everything is done by hand: from the shearing of the sheep and the carding of the wool, the dyeing of the fibers, and the spinning of the yarn up to the final knotting of the carpet.
