Storied placemats reinterpret the traditional Romanian “ștergar”.
Storied is a set of handmade placemats that reinterpret the traditional Romanian “ștergar”, using the same craft and local materials with a design inspired by the socialist architecture of Bucharest. It talks about personal stories gathered under the same urban roof, shared over the table. The set comprises four pieces that work well individually, as placemats, or together, forming a table runner. The natural tones are accentuated by the warm texture of the woven wool.
Dare to Rug
Launched in 2015, Dare to Rug is the first Romanian designer brand that creates hand-tufted rugs, mixing craft and design inspired by traditional patterns. Dare to Rug was created by Andreea Batros and Flavia Scînteanu - best friends with a huge passion for design, having the courage to challenge designers and individuals around the world to embrace their love for rugs. Blending contemporary design with the best materials in the traditional process of creating rugs was their main concern when they imagined Dare to Rug. Their love for inspiring design now stands at the core of their brand.
