Her obsession for details, quality, and originality, makes the brand one of the most innovative, launching new collections and renewing its catalog every year.

“One day, 20 years ago, while watching my daughters playing on the rug, I thought-Wouldn’t it be easier to wash it at home? After searching unsuccessfully for the ideal rug, I decided to design a washable rug myself, perfect for a home with children.”
