This line of rugs is born out of an exclusive collection between family-owned rug producer Momeni and Christiane Lemieux, a designer, entrepreneur, investor and author. This specific rug line is referred to as Lemieux et Cie, which was introduced into the United States in late summer 2020. Lemieux et Cie focuses on the relationship between designer and artisan. The rug collection references Coptic textiles, Tuareg mats, Berber rugs, and nui shibori, a resist-dyeing technique that uses stitches rather than bands or folds. "The entire line is an exposure to many cultures and techniques connected by a common thread,” says Momeni design director Katy Repetto. “The dusty palette and indigenous-inspired qualities restore and honor the human hand.” The Lemieux et Cie collection consists of 10 different rug designs, and each utilizes a unique blend of materials, fully embracing natural textures, organic patterns and globally influenced design.
