HISTORY
Launched in 2015, Dare to Rug is the first Romanian designer brand that creates hand-tufted rugs. The creatives behind the brand are Andreea Batros and Flavia Scînteanu - two interior designers who share a passion for craft.

SPECIFIC
While working for several years on different continents, the designers were fascinated by rugs and decided to bring back the rug as the central piece of decoration in a space. The wish to promote Romanian design globally made them return to Romania and start this adventure together.

ROMANIAN DESIGN WEEK APPEARANCES

2017 // COMMUNE 
Is the circular gathering where everyone is equally protected and the life cycle is complete. It’s a gathering of any kind under a communal purpose.

2017 // DYAD
A team or a pair, the dual elements will always be complementary and more powerful when they’re together. 

2017 // MEANDER
Gives the sensation of movement through pattern and texture. It alludes to a meandering river or to life itself and to the fecundity of the snake symbol

2016 // EDGY

Dare to Rug's first collection, called Romanian Moods, is a mood board of feelings overlapped with traditional Romanian patterns. Each rug is inspired by the aesthetics of different historical regions in Romania: Oltenia, Maramureș, Transilvania, Moldova, Basarabia, Bucovina, Dobrogea, Muntenia, Banat and Crișana. All the designs come from a process of reinterpreting the patterns using the designers’ creative filter in order to give them a contemporary feel - they used colours to encompass a modern look and powerful emotions. Dare to Rug creates a sustainable product, hand-tufted with natural materials.
