About us
A master piece at your feet
The magic begins in a distant town in the heart of Colombia. Amongst the emerald Andes and crystalline waterfalls, nature finds its way into your doors, painting your floors in turquoise blues, providence greens, and sunset coppers. With the vision and expertise of our designers, Verdi Design creates a unique piece of art by combining natural elements in an ethnic and original manner. The outcome is simply breath-taking. A masterpiece at your feet
100% handcrafted in Colombia
The journey starts in Curití, Santander. Working as a team, with the care and expertise of the best Colombian craftsmanship, Verdi Design creates an enchanting rug, that will not only lighten up your spaces, but your life
The man behind the rug
CARLOS VERA DIEPPA (1956 – 2010)
Carlos Vera Dieppa was a pioneer in Colombian textile crafts. He developed a technique that allowed him to create a very special kind of rug, unique in its class. He began this artwork in 1997 and used to narrate in a mischievous manner the adventures he lived at the time. In a lake somewhere in the heart of Colombia, he found a very special fiber. The first thing he did was to earn the trust of the natives with his “good energy and warm heart”. He did not accept a “no” for an answer, and with this in mind, he started to work with them, developing a manual loom, which allowed him to create a rug that was the first of its kind. After perfecting this technique, he started fusing these natural fibers with metals such as copper and tin, creating a concept, which was truly unique. Carlos Vera Dieppa passed away in 2010 and this craft was left in the hands of his children, who carry it in their blood and who created the name VERDI (Vera Dieppa) in honor their beloved father..

Process
Process
It is not only the elaboration of our designs, or the complexity of our weaving, but the quality of the distinctive materials we use. A rug is only as good as the fiber it is woven from, and with this in mind, we handle our fibers with reverence, care and an impeccable technique.
Withdrawing our natural fibers
Between the mountainous fields of this sunlit province, the natives give life to this art by extracting the natural fibers from an exotic Colombian plant. These are the early stages of this magical metamorphosis, were we convert an idea into a beautifully finished object
Tuning colors
Between bubbling pots, and colored powders, this old-world tradition has taken place in Colombia for generations. The art of tuning colors of the same shades is a meticulous task that requires detail and attention
Hang and dry
After the fibers have been dyed, they are hung and dried naturally in the mild weather of Curití. The warm and dry climate of the mountains is perfect for this job. Later on they are spun, creating a strong and long thread of the desired color.
From the loom to your home
Once brushed, dyed, and spun, the fique is winded into cones, ready for the final transformation. With the use of a manual loom, the colored threads are woven with metals such as copper and tin in the chosen design, creating a truly exceptional composition.
