JC-1 Bubbles

A fun and playful motif of polka dots in the carpet Bubbles, design by modern and ingenious designer Joe Colombo. Bubbles was born from his 1968 graphic design project that Joe Colombo undertook in various areas such as lighting, for example with the Bolle table lamp already in 1964. The pattern is created by circles made of three or four different diameters that create dynamic rhythms and patterns.

Care & Maintenance
A correct handling and small daily attentions ensure that you may preserve over time the tactile and aesthetic qualities of the carpet. In addition to the quality of the cleaning, which must strictly be professional in case of handmade carpets, there are a number of important recommendations to be made. A few inconveniences may occur soon after first buying a hand-crafted carpet for the first time. Recognizing them and knowing how to deal with them can help you prevent irreversible damage.
