Retorra is a word that, when loosely translated from Latin, means “yarn.” I believe that the merit of any object is determined by the quality of the raw materials that were used to create it. At it simplest form a carpet should be nothing more than yarn, yarn that has been manipulated in a beautiful tangle of knots and symmetry to create hand knotted carpets. At Retorra we fixate on the yarn, sourcing the best possible raw materials in order to create rugs that we are proud of and are worth walking on. Wool, silk, sunpat these are a few of the selections from our palette. We avoid synthetics when ever possible and even try to make many of our designs without the use of dye pigment at all. At Retorra our approach is academic but within that discipline we hope to create hand made carpets that are straightforward and of great taste.
