The fique fiber comes from Colombia. In partnership with a knitting enterprise, Ruckstuhl has made the fiber a new addition to its assortment. Fique is practically the national fiber of Colombia. Used in former times for the production of coffee bags and agricultural yarns, this natural resource was discovered by Ruckstuhl by a miraculous coincidence, when partnership with a knitting enterprise in the Colombian heartland first gave a hint of what could be achieved using this durable and versatile fiber. Today the natural material is spun by hand in Colombia’s Curití region, and then knitted into uniquely beautiful carpets using big knitting needles. Maglia is the name of the collection created in this way. It comes in five vivid colour combinations. The craftsmanlike processing of the irregular material results in wonderfully authentic patterns.
