Parachute’s brand-new launch is perfectly old school: The bedding brand has released a collection of rugs made using centuries-old traditions by artisans in Panipat, India—aka, the City of Weavers. Here, old meets new in the most satisfying way.

“We knew that we wanted to find a heritage textiles manufacturer to bring the vision for our rug assortment to life,” says founder Ariel Kaye. “It took us months to find our perfect partner, a manufacturer with eight decades of experience, deep and varied design capabilities, and an incredibly strong commitment to social and environmental responsibility. We were excited to learn that their age-old weaving techniques not only led to a product of superior quality, but they also help to preserve the knowledge of the craft for generations to come.”

With four different rug designs (one available in two different colorways), Parachute’s newest venture reflects the same, timeless style it’s long been known for. Soft shades of ivory and gray present a calm palette that can work as a base for a wide range of styles, while varied textures automatically increase the coziness of any room they’re placed in—the Braided Wool Rug is practically a floor-destined version of your favorite winter sweater.

“We set out to create an assortment of rugs that are reflective of our overall design philosophy and aesthetic—timeless, unfussy pieces in neutral colors that can be easily mixed, matched, and layered,” Kaye says. Made with the utmost quality in mind, these rugs are perennial—they’ll last through regular wear and shifts in design preferences. Shop the collection below.

If you want to feel like you’re walking on a perfectly cozy sweater 24-7, this braided pick—available in both ivory and gray—is best.

A simple striped flatweave option is well suited for minimalists and bohemians alike.

The subtle geometric pattern of this kilim rug makes a great base for a classically styled living room.

Consider this textured rug an upgrade on your typical off-white option.
