The story of Gustave, the man-eating crocodile rumoured to have eaten over 300 men, is the kind of myth that has become legend in East Africa in recent years.
Thought to have been born in 1955 and still roaming the shores of Lake Tanganyika, his exact size is unknown. Already the subject of books and films, he is equally the inspiration behind our Gustave rug. Densely woven Himalayan wool gives way to raised bamboo silk forming an abstract crocodile pattern. We like to think this design is as timeless as the story of Gustave himself.
Hand-knotted Himalayan wool with bamboo silk (100 knots per square inch); also available in /re/PURPOSE PERFORMANCE fibres

We use Tibetan-style knotting in our hand-knotted rugs which is a specialty of Nepal. In India, our weavers embrace innovation and produce flatwoven, handloom, and hand-knotted rugs in almost any fibre including wools, silks, linens and our rePURPOSE PERFORMANCE fibres.
