DESIGN BY PAOLO ZANI, 2018
Mustache is a collection of carpets designed by Paolo Zani. Created to meet the needs of outdoor spaces, it has evolved into a range of versatile furnishing accessories ideal for any space. Featuring a melange weave with edge trims in different colours and fringes, the carpets are weaved on handlooms: such ﬁne craftsmanship and tailored quality makes each one of them unique. Made from a polypropylene ﬁbre yarn, Mustache carpets are available in three designs in two or more colours and in two standard sizes, or can be customised on request. They are highly resistant, even when exposed to sunlight or humidity.
