El Espartano was asked to develop the new carpets for the Yesod Hadat Sephardic Congregation traditional temple in Lavalle Street.

An El Espartano Magna carpet in a traditional, five color geometric design was chosen to cover the floors of the imposing central sanctuary of the Yesod Hadat Sephardic Congregation of Teaching, Worship, and Charity – the historic temple located in Lavalle Street, Buenos Aires – as part of their recent refurbishment campaign.

The Magna carpet was made using our Colortec system to create a custom design that accompanies the aesthetics and materials of the temple. The design’s short rapport facilitated installation, as it adapted easily to the different areas, stairs and altars. It brings visual and acoustical warmth to the space and, thanks to the combination of wool and nylon yarns, the product also offers particularly high wear resistance.

The refurbishments have been undertaken in the run up to the hundredth anniversary of the historic building, which was founded on April 20, 1920 by immigrants from Aleppo, Syria. The temple forms part of the Yesod Hadat Sephardic Congregation of Teaching, Worship, and Charity, which has for the first time, together with architect Ariel Levy, sought the assistance of El Espartano to complete their project.
