about PapilioHandmade Designer Rugs
Papilio is a producer of affordable and stylish handmade designer rugs, which via the strong, market-oriented collections, reflect contemporary lifestyle trends. Each collection covers diverse price categories, making them perfectly accessible to a wide clientele. This reflects Papilio’s philosophy: “design doesn’t have to be expensive”.
Designer rugs with a highly creative character
All of our designer rugs are developed by in-house designers, or by acclaimed external guest-designers including Ann-Marie Jonckheere, Gerd Couckhuyt and the duo of Susanna Campogrande and Lise Casalegno. Their creative quest for the perfect designer rug has already led to a wide collection of tasteful designs, which have been given the expressive names Pepper, Planet, Paint, Pure, Pride and Poem. The various collections are characterised by the following aspects: hip, trendy, timeless, exclusive, ethnic, natural, cosy, bold, innovative..
Papilio is widely respected for its efforts regarding designer rugs and the recycling of raw materials. National and international design awards which we have already obtained for our innovative rug design include: the Red Dot Design Award and the Henri Van de Velde Design Label.
Experts in artisanal work: handmade rugs
Papilio rugs are made by hand, often from surprising and unexpected materials so that each individual piece retains a unique character. For example, what do you think about a handmade rug made from candy wrappers, old t-shirts or bicycle tyres? Such bold creations of handmade rugs are the result of our innovative approach and ‘out of the box’ thinking.
The creation and design process takes place in our head office in Kuurne, and the production of the handmade rugs takes place in countries throughout the whole world. A handmade rug from Papilio will ensure that every interior has the unique, individual and exclusive touch.
