El Espartano is proud to present Oblique, our new collection of rugs developed in collaboration with the designer Coty Larguía.

Our Alexa line has been expanded with the addition of the new Oblique collection of rugs, which incorporate modern designs and warm textures. Designed by Coty Larguía in collaboration with El Espartano, these handcrafted rugs are woven from 100% pure natural virgin wool.

Inspired by Art Deco and Brutalist architecture, the designs present dynamic geometric shapes that merge and overlap, creating a three-dimensional effect. They play with scale, direction and color, as is typical of the designer’s trademark style. Abstract designs – a recurring theme in her collections – contrast with the softness of the wool to create a distinctive floor covering that will stand out in any room.

Handcrafted with carefully selected, flexible, natural fibers, the collection consists of four different designs: Rouen, Azuka, Amberes and Oracular. Each of these rugs is also woven in several varieties of colors, including options such as maize, blue-greens, greys and coral. They are available in the following sizes: 1.50 x 2 m; 1.70 x 2.40 m; 2 x 3 m.

Coty Larguía is a designer, art director and the creator of the PICNIC brand. The production of the new Oblique collection marks her second time collaborating with El Espartano. She has previously developed the Prisma collection, working together with the company’s design team.

El Espartano explores design and develops its products in its Sustainable Design Laboratory. Alexa is our flagship line, which includes our own products as well as several collaborations we have had with artists, designers, architects and other renowned creatives.

All the manufacturing processes that make up the production cycle are carried out in-house: spinning, dyeing, weaving, shearing and the final finishes. Every step of the process is closely supervised by a team of specialized experts. The end result is a premium quality product.

The new Oblique collection joins the large variety of products made by El Espartano, all of which can be seen in our Online Store.
