Edelman Leather, the brand of luxury leathers for interior, is thrilled to announce its new inspiring collaboration with the elegant Swiss Carpet manufacturer. Edelman will be the exclusive distributor for Ruckstuhl Carpets in North America.
Just as Edelman lives and breathes leather, Ruckstuhl lives and breathes fiber. Since opening its doors in 1881 in Langenthal, Switzerland, Ruckstuhl has been committed to turning fiber into art. The warmth of wool, the rugged resistance of coir, the versatility of cotton, horse hair, & linen, the bold texture and structure of jute, the luster of goat's hair — these are fibers Ruckstuhl knows inside and out.
But also like Edelman, Ruckstuhl doesn't rest on tradition. Its designers and artists experiment, fuse, discover, play. They discovered fique, a plant fiber from Columbia, and have created wonder with its irregular material. They have studied weaving techniques from the Caucasus to bring ancient textures to modern spaces. Ruckstubl even created a line that weaves stainless steel thread among hair and linen — the most sensual, bold, and unexpected shimmer and texture!
The spirit of Edelman is one of diversity in products, curiosity in design, and commitment to the best quality and customer experience. And human connections — from manufacturer to designer to end user —are a top priority. This aligns with the core values of Ruckstuhl. Making the best quality from the best available raw materials, with an eye and hand for beauty.
The versatlity, artistry, and unmatched quality of Ruckstuhl carpets perfectly complements the rich and varied collection of Edelman leathers. Ruckstuhl natural fiber carpets and area rugs, like Edelman leathers, add individuality and elegance to residential settings as well as the contract sector. At Edelman, creativity rules, Our philosophy gives designers total freedom. We believe that LUXURY is the privilege to imagine anything you want. With Ruckstuhl this freedom extends even further. Whatever you can dream for your interior space — the color, texture mood, angles shadows, touch, your vision —there is an Edelman leather and a Ruckstuhl carpet for you.
The launch will begin in June in Chicago at NeoCon followed by New York City, Los Angeles, and Dania Beach, Florida. Following in September with the final full roll out into Atlanta, San Francisco, Denver, Boston and Dallas.
