Cardo is part of the wool Kilim carpet collection in fine wool (1,250 kg per sqm) exclusively hand made for C&C Milano.
Cardo carpet design is inspired by C&C Milano iconic thistle motif since decades. Cardo has a classical and vintage allure but with a modern twist thanks to the unique color palette of 51 shades of naturally dyed wool from vegetal and mineral pigments with a distressed look. The juxtaposition of bold and contrasting colors helps in creating a strikingly beautiful hi-low effect between the flat background and the textural pattern.
Kilim carpets come in some standard sizes but custom sizes are available upon request:
118 x 118 inch
118 x 138 inch
71 x 110 inch
runner 35.4 or 43.3 inch x L
Kilim indicates at the same time a geometric pattern, the most common design for this kind of artefacts, and the flat weave construction method of the carpet. The Kilim carpet takes shape by knotting the weft threads on the solid warp, feature that makes these accessories also double face; tightly assembled, the carpet is extremely long lasting and gets more beautiful over time also because the natural and mineral pigments used to dye wool get a more vibrant and intense shade.
