Exclusively for NRC readers, Fair Fabrics has designed floor rugs and wall hangings and had it woven according to traditional methods in its Tunisian artisan workshops. The rugs are made with natural wool colors and are temporarily available from NRC in a numbered, limited edition. Both designs have been created in close collaboration with the weavers, based on what they make traditionally.
Rugs are the mood makers in the house and offer a lot of extra comfort. They improve the acoustics, personalize the interior and insulate in both winter and summer. The combination of old techniques with this contemporary pattern gives your interior a special atmosphere. Rugs are nice for the layout of the living space. You can break a large room with it, while a small room with a rug gets depth and thus appears larger.
The rugs are traditionally woven with a natural color palette by a coalition of 4 smaller Tunisian craft workshops. The weavers’ years of experience ensure tight weaving, resulting in a high-quality rug that you will enjoy for years to come. All cooperatives from the coalition are now working together on the growth and professionalization of their craft workshops.

Unique Fair Fabrics wall hanging
In addition to the rug, Fair Fabrics has also designed a tapestry and had it woven according to traditional methods in our Tunisian craft workshops. The rugs are made of undyed wool and are exclusively available in a numbered edition in the NRC webshop. The special design was created in collaboration with the weavers, based on what they traditionally make.
Wall hangings are completely contemporary, they improve the acoustics and make the interior special and personal. Because they are all made by hand, each one is unique. You can see the hand of the maker in a landscape of combined knotting and weaving.

Tunisia has gone through a turbulent time with, among other things, the highest Covid-19 infection rates of the entire African continent, but also national and international political unrest. The income of many trade studios has often been lost due to the recent economic downturn. With this special collaboration between NRC webshop and Fair Fabrics, the weaving cooperative in Tunisia was provided with work for 4 months at a fair price, a tapestry with impact!
