From the local heart of Milan but amplified vision from designers all over the world, NODUS has a cultural plan. This craft workshop commits to maintaining the tradition and knowledge of carpet design but add value to today's design world by reinterpreting pieces through the eyes of the world's most innovative designers. In this hyper connected world, we can now collaborate and attain aesthetic, philosophical and cultural goals without compromising the end value. Bringing the knowledge and mastery from only the best of places, Nepal, Pakistan, India, Turkmenistan, China and Turkey, NODUS ensures their craft and vision to stay ahead in the world of carpet design.

" Our philosophy in the creation of this exclusive handmade collection could be summed up by quoting Francois-Henri Pinault: “ Luxury is the meeting between a vision of the future which surprises and a comprehension of the past which reassures.  This is how we have created and conceived this collection of unique pieces. The design will surprise and you will be delighted with the highest quality." - NODUS
