‘Kolorbrix’ Rug Collection
Gibbon Group have teamed up with artist Michael Phillips to create a NEW Designer Collection of Tretford Custom Rugs. Michael’s connection with art, craft and design has paired seamlessly with the raw but structured texture of Tretford Carpet. Tretford Custom Rugs offers limitless design capability and a vibrant colour palette with optimum durability. Tretford has a unique structural hard-edged construction and is dimensionally stable. The dimensional stability also gives you the flexibility to cut Tretford to any shape, giving you almost endless possibilities for custom designs. It is made with the highest grade Cashmere goat hair from renewable and sustainable resources.
We’re proud to be able to bring you Michael Phillips’ KOLORBRIX Collection of Tretford Custom Rugs. Michael Phillips’ diverse creative practice spans the built environment, publication design, screen-printing, painting and sculpture. His multi-disciplinary practice is informed by the arts and crafts movement and the Bauhaus style of teaching he received when studying at QUT. Both of these key artistic movements saw art, craft and design as integrally connected and interchangeable disciplines. These philosophies, as well as Phillips’ ethos of ‘making do’, underpin and connect his seemingly disparate works. The body of work for the Gibbon Group is grounded in the materiality of the product (the fibre, colour palette and the ease of shape making), the use of factory off-cuts (to reduce waste to a minimum) and the creation of templates and pattern units that can be scaled and duplicated to accommodate spaces ranging from the domestic to large scale commercial interiors.

Tretford Rug Collections are made from Mongolian Goat Hair Fibre.
Goat Hair Fibre is different than wool because the fibres are uniquely solid, making them a lot more resistant to staining than other materials. Mongolian Goat Hair Fibre is as tough as the animals that live in Mongolia and as colourful as the people who hand cut and care for it.
