Ege Carpets' new Mark of Time Ecotrust collection offers a truly sustainable product concept with improved acoustics and flexibility.
Its multi-level loop construction creates a sculptural texture influenced by the collision of the Earth’s layers. Tilted, chaotic and organic elements come together to define the two co-ordinating patterns, Bedrock and Landslide, that can be used alone or combined to give a soft or dramatic expression to the floorscape.
Minerals including jet, lapis and serpentine have inspired the colour palette of tone-on-tone neutrals complemented by darker shades that create either a subtle or powerful yet refined look. Each design comes in 15 contemporary colours carefully chosen for their ability to combine into unique compositions.
Cradle to Cradle Certified, crafted from regenerated and regenerable yarn and fitted with the patented recycled Ecotrust backing, the collection suits any sustainable flooring project. Mark of Time is available as carpet tiles, planks, wall-to-wall carpet and the innovative Figura shapes.
"Rocks, carved by ancient forces, are a thumbprint of the Earth’s past. Bearing centuries of weight and meaning, each stone has travelled through time and landscapes so infinite that we can’t comprehend. Through their immortal existence, they’re the subject of many myths and legends and their scale confirms that we’re but a small event in their seismic history. Always changing, the rockface resists and yet eventually gives way to the elements. Sliding, folding and tumbling into chaos, the fractures build a new structure and the seas wash the minerals into weeping colours. During the landslide, the Earth buries its face and then reveals a new beauty."
Bedrock has a soft stone texture and is the foundation for the collection. The layers created by elemental forces tilt and tumble into shapes locked in time. And Landslide is inspired by fragmented rock, weathered and streaked with colour. Each rock has a story to tell as it fractures and tumbles into the sea.
The collection's designer, Carol Appleton, is an experienced textile designer and creative director. Carol is also the talent behind the ReForm Memory Ecotrust, ReForm Legend Ecotrust and ReForm Artworks Ecotrust collections.
