The Mat-The-Basics Merano Rug is at once neutral and gorgeously graphic. Against a background of hand knotted New Zealand wool, viscose accents appear as a optical illusion, appearing to fade in and out and in again. Available in a range of sizes and colorways to accent a variety of modern living spaces. Mat-The-Basics has pioneered a new type of carpet - refined, handmade rugs that combine innovative design with a dedication to the highest standards of craftsmanship. These carpets, inspired from contemporary shapes and colors, are created using the traditional techniques of skilled weavers including hand-tufting, hand-weaving and hand-knotting methods.
