Globally Inspired. American Made.
Introducing Crosspoint, a bold new collection of American-made flatweave rugs inspired by traditional weaving techniques.
Crosspoint’s unique layered construction creates a subtle interplay of tone and texture. By interweaving a tonal pattern over a foundation of undyed heathered wool, the result is a flatweave rug with texture and depth that feels luxurious underfoot. Every rug in the collection is woven to order and hand-finished at Merida’s mill in Fall River, Massachusetts.
From unique hand finishing techniques to end-to-end customization, the Crosspoint Collection is an evolution of our heritage of craftsmanship and innovation. As Creative Director Roxanne Hanna says, “Like our Tailormade Collection, which debuted earlier this year, Crosspoint demonstrates our love for textiles and craftsmanship but take construction to an unprecedented level.”
She describes the design concept as a nod to the great weaving traditions. “The underlying story of textiles is an ongoing exchange of cultures and ideas. Each rug in the collection puts a modern twist on a traditional pattern, from the Anatolian-inspired Ankara to the Moroccan motif of Serai.” The collection is also a counterpoint to the Tailormade Collection in both construction and design. “Tailormade was inspired by classic menswear. Crosspoint is like a well-traveled companion, and that’s reflected in everything from the patterns to the palette and even the texture and feel of the rugs.”
The Crosspoint Collection initially offers five styles in six colorways, plus an extensive yarn palette for customizing colors. Crosspoint also introduces an innovative woven border option that adds an unexpected flourish. “We’re using modern techniques to emulate an age-old weaving tradition. The borders are designed and woven right into the rug, which is truly unique.”
