One of our most popular Armadillo & Co rugs, the Atlas is knotted entirely by hand from pure soft wool. Popular because it's both practical for busy spaces and is a classic design that looks great in almost any room.

Hand knotting means each pile or knot can be seen on the back of the rug. Unlike a hand tufted rug which has its pile 'stapled' to the base and then glued in place, hand knots have the durability and quality of being a part of the base, the warp. This makes the rug beautiful yet robust enough to be used as a hall runner.

For what's essentially an off white rug, the Atlas is remarkably easy to keep looking good. Dirt should be left to dry then vacuumed off. Wet or food stains can be treated with water or water with a wool wash if that's not enough.

The Berber Knot Atlas comes in two colour ways, Natural and Limestone and 5 standard sizes including a standard hall runner, plus can be custom sized. We hold most sizes in stock in NZ at all times or can have your new Atlas rug to you usually within 2 weeks. And always with free delivery for online orders, anywhere in NZ, even rural delivery!
