THE VERDI RUG

We are the creators of a unique type of rug that combines natural fibers with select materials. At our workshop, we hand-weave these contemporary textiles remaining faithful to the Colombian artistic practices upon which our company was founded.

OUR RUG COLLECTIONS

AES COLLECTION

A collection born as a new way of understanding VERDI’s materiality. In AES, our different materials do not intertwine with each other, but instead overlap and generate more linear and contemporary dynamics, aimed to translate balance, harmony and purity.

HANDMADE BY ARTISANS

At our workshop

 

All of our pieces are carefully handmade at The VERDI Workshop. We directly employ over 30 highly qualified individuals- whose expertise is the result of generations of practice- under upmost working conditions and a positive work environment.

SUSTAINABLY SOURCED MATERIALS

From Colombia and Latinamerica

 

All of our materials are sustainably sourced from different places in Colombia and Latin america. Our main fiber, fique fiber, comes from Curití, Santander. We support over 19 families of farmers in Curití. During the harvest of fique fiber, only the external leaves of the plant are extracted hence allowing for continued crop growth and no deforestation.

BESPOKE

Custom made for clients needs

 

Our rugs are entirely custom made in weaves, color, shape, materials and size. We work with a variety of materials such as fique, alpaca wool, horsehair, fishing line, copper, stainless steel, and others.

AMANGIRI’S SUSTAINABLE “THE TREE OF LIFE”INSTALLATION BY VERDI

"Handcrafted from sustainable fibers, as well as straw and copper, Colombian textile design studio Verdi’s “The Tree of Life” sculpture—currently residing in the lounge of Canyon Point, Utah’s all-suite luxury resort Amangiri—isn’t like other seasonal installations. Verdi co-founder and creative director Tomás Vera first got the idea in 2013, from the Tree of Life concept he observed in Mexico and found across numerous global mythologies. Vera brought his vision for the flowing tree to life in 2019, and it now makes its North American debut at Amangiri, where it faces the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument.⁠ Read more about the origin of the installation, which will be on view until mid-January, at Verdi’s site".

GALERIE

Colombian textile studio VERDI makes its Miami debut with La Macorina, a limited-release design by the brand’s co-founder Tomas Vera. Painstakingly fashioned with over 4,000 hand-tied knots of Cumare fiber, avian feathers, nylon, and leather shell, La Macorina is a pendulum sculpture that surprisingly transforms into a hammock, mirroring a brilliant Colombian peacock preening its tail in courtship. With its siliconized wire system of steel and tension springs, the piece is as much a feat of engineering as regal artistry.

Here’s Why You Should Be Paying Close Attention to Colombia’s Design Scene

"VERDI was founded with the intention to recover a legacy: after the death of their father Carlos Vera Dieppa, a leading textile designer who developed a technique to interweave natural and copper threads, brother and sister Tomás and Cristina Vera tracked down their father’s looms and the weavers who originally worked with him. VERDI’s rugs, which bring together materials like alpaca wool, copper, stainless steel, and fique fiber (made from a native Andean plant), shimmer and shift with changing light and perspective".

The Fiber Tree at the Center of VERDI's Bogotá Showroom is Nothing Short of MagicThe handcrafted combination of sculpture and fiber art is a bold departure from typical retail decor.


"Naturally, then, the company’s new Bogotá showroom is a full break from what you might see in other retail spaces from other rug or textile companies. It’s a richly colored, carefully lit space with the walls bearing many organic displays of the brand’s facility with fibers. But it’s at the center of the showroom that things truly take off. Hanging over visitors heads is a fantastic, almost Seussian tree—a supernatural piece of fauna composed of copper, fiber, straw, and other materials. It’s simply stunning".
