Marina and Maurizio Battilossi have been running the family business for over 30 years. Maurizio's roots are in Turin, his heart has been enraptured by the magic of Asia, but his curiosity knows no boundaries, always willing to explore the world to broaden his gaze and be inspired. He started his career in the field of antique rugs when he was very young, but today he also dedicates himself to vintage rugs and above all to the creation of original contemporary rugs. His long experience in the sector allows him to find the right combination of elements and colours to make every textile furnishing object a true masterpiece of craftsmanship. Since 1994 he collaborates with Asian partners in Kathmandu and Lahore, exchanging knowledge and new ideas in a continuous mutual evolution. His sister Marina assists him in everything, but his specialty has been the conservation and restoration of precious carpets and fabrics from the personal collections of his clients or kept in Battilossi’s gallery since 1998.
At the base of Battilossi's furnishing accessories is the idea that the rug is like a blank canvas on which to fix a concept, a surface to interpret and weave by merging different worlds and apparently distant cultures. Moreover, with Battilossi the great decorative tradition of the rug discovers a new identity: a different and up- to-date role in furnishing, a universe of evocative shapes and colours that interprets contemporary trends with great attention and creates an unmistakable texture that offers a rich and textured surface to the touch and sight. Each rug is a true work of craftsmanship, the result of a refined encounter between East and West: the quality and creativity of Italian design, in fact, combined with the ancient experience of master craftsmen from Nepal and Pakistan, create a product that is increasingly sensitive to the new frontiers of design. The common denominator is not a single technique or a single style, but the emotion that only the expert hands of the craftsmen can reveal and transmit thread after thread. For over 20 years, Battilossi carpets have been the work of the best craftsmen in the East who maintain the ancient secrets necessary to make high quality products, able to endure without losing their charm. From conception to the design, to the manufacturing and finishing, each stage of the carpet production is under the direct control of the company, which has the opportunity to identify the best stylistic solutions to give shape to each creation.
