Idea and concept

Deconstructing the familiar and reconstructing it in a contemporary context – that’s what THE MASHUP is all about. Quality, handmade oriental rugs serve as the raw material for THE MASHUP which are printed with colour and then rendered a vintage look in several complex, hand-crafted steps – eco-friendly by not using chemical bleaches. The result is in an entirely modern style of carpet. Individually configurable and saturated with a new form of distinction, THE MASHUP rugs tell a modern-day story of deep-rooted respect for tradition and craftsmanship.




For all editions except the PURE EDITION the carpets are then cut and reassembled into a patchwork pattern, and the edges sealed with a rubber solution. Finally, the whole carpet is fitted with a contract use, non-slip, felt-knob back - so it lies on the floor completely flat and straight.

A unique piece of art

  • Hand-knotted Oriental carpets – some new, some antique – are used as the best basic raw material.
  • Expert manufacturing in Germany.
  • Careful selection of all components.
  • Because we make it our business not to use any form of bleach in our carpets, there is no damage to the fibre structure.
  • kymo creative director Eva Langhans arranges the design of each THE MASHUP carpet individually.
  • If you want you can have it even wet cleaned and it is certified as low flammable in compliance with the DIN EN 13501-1 norm.

All of these fine details add up to create a proper masterpiece – your own personal THE MASHUP carpet.


Lovingly crafted by hand




Colours & Colour combinations

The choice is yours: select from 16 standard base colours. Or create your own remix using custom colours.

Please note that all colours may vary. We use wool as the basic material, a natural product that never reproduces colour straight away. And because we don’t use bleaches out of conviction, the colour of the basic fabric (light beige mostly) is added to the print colour in the final look.

Sizes

  • Standard sizes:
    140 x 200 cm | 170 x 230 cm | 200 x 200 cm | 200 x 290 cm | 290 x 410 cm
  • Or choose your own preferred size to suit your personal wish.
    Up to 350 x 590 cm.
  • Oversizes on request

Special shapes

We can make almost any shape of carpet: round, oval and even organic shapes. The same applies to corners or hollows or customized sizes and outlines.

Logo and text printing

We can also incorporate your logo or any other personal wording in the print. Just tell us what you want to have!

Stitching

If you don’t have any specific wishes our designer will select the fitting sewing thread for your colour scheme. We can also accommodate your wishes.

GO ON. AND CREATE.

OneZero. A one, then a zero – like a binary number, using the smallest possible building blocks of a digital world. This or that. An abstract instrument, a reflection of the progressively, increasingly digital life we now live – an inspiration for the latest sensation from kymo: THE MASHUP Concept Edition OneZero.

Three new patterns, consummately captured in the cool and captivating world of digital design – a substitute for the traditional look of the Concept Edition.

Purist. Simple. Just raw. Like its sister from the Concept Edition range, THE MASHUP Pure Edition only uses new quality Persian rugs as the basis for its creations. The difference to THE MASHUP Concept Edition is that for the Pure Edition, only plain carpets are used instead of a patchwork. Because they’re already designed and built to last and stand their ground, THE MASHUP Pure Edition rugs come without anti-slip backing and edges that are simply finished with a handcrafted binding.

Magma. A life in total darkness. Motion in unyielding stone. Colour in the shadows and heat deep inside the core. These contrasts are in a constant state of interaction and create a force that gives way to the new.

THE MASHUP MAGMA expresses the tension inherent in these elemental forces in every fibre. With its reduced 'smoked black' colour scheme in combination with an iridescent red textile core, displayed in the shearing method the carpet uses, it radiates a mighty sense of vitality that immediately grabs your attention. Tension is created. Back and forth the forces exert pressure on each other. The extra elaborate manufacturing makes THE MASHUP MAGMA a masterpiece of craftsmanship - down to the smallest detail. A true piece of art: THE MASHUP MAGMA.

When traditional surfaces fade, it’s time to clear the way for an injection of modernity. This is THE MASHUP ABSTRCT. Combining the techniques of an oriental rug and refined by the tools of the 21st century, the design, however, is a concept of its origins. Repetitive floral or geometrical patterns? No chance. Traditional colours that are easy on the eyes? Forget it. Grey is the new black. Never dull, THE MASHUP is full of life. Flashes of powerful, glowing red punctuate the monotone grey.

A true test of the elements! Natural equilibrium is restored with an exceptionally tranquil border – in peaceful white.

Flowery. Pictorial. Classic. And yet a wholly contemporary take. We put a lot of skill, love and devotion into THE MASHUP FRESCO SERIES. First, we cut up oriental rugs, the sort with the traditional floral motif. Then we bash on a bright blue. Finally, we put the whole thing through a proper vintage treatment, lending the FRESCO SERIES that faded, yet impressive beauty that wall paintings have.

The carpet’s special features include anti-slide backing and extra-stability bordering made with rubber to keep the design steady and stylish on the floor. Just like a proper design statement should be. Can be reproduced anytime and anywhere. Bright shining blue. Simply très chic. That’s THE MASHUP FRESCO SERIES.
