A Manné Q&A!

We scored a personal interview with Liora herself to learn more about her patented Lamontage design process, her inspirations, as well as what’s to come from her brilliant mind in the near future. Check it out:

Q: How did you begin designing rugs?

A: "I am a textile designer so I have always been interested in working with different textures and designs. I have a masters in textile design and my first job was in textiles...It was very fast paced, and at that time things were made overseas to make them cheaper.

I wanted to focus on using textiles at home and to create using the unique Lamontage design process; using these textiles I created in multifaceted ways, whether that'd be for clothing, a floor covering, wall covering, or other interior design motives. My interest was always developing new and quality textiles with endless use. Rugs worked very well with this."

Q: Where do you draw your inspiration from?

A: My inspiration is everywhere; I get it from traveling, from being exposed to nature, different cultures, color, the weather, and more. I draw inspiration from everywhere by focusing on my surroundings- it's constant.

Q: What is your favorite collection and why?

A: "I love my front porch collections: They constantly evolve with the seasons and holidays and I love that as the seasons change, these rugs can too.

I can gain new inspirations and feel emotional responses from people as they enter a home and always hear about these rugs specifically so it's nice to see how people react in certain ways from these doormats. They're all so versatile."

Q:Are there any upcoming designs you're thinking about for your future collections?

A: "We are always working with new colors and patterns; however we're looking to start adding some more metallic colors into our Lamontage design process so stay on the look out for that coming soon."

The Materials

Manné is a visionary when it comes to her work. Her designs are for the insurgents within us all, craving to stray from the norm. This being said, she only uses two materials to craft her rugs so that she can focus on the intricate and beautiful designs she creates. Worried about staining your rug or wearing it down? No worries, with coir and polypropylene as the two main materials, there is little to no wear and tear, and you can be free to focus on the finer things in life.

Liora Manné indoor outdoor rugs are the perfect versatile addition to any home, and we invite you to discover every pop of personality that they can bring to your living space.

Natural Materials

The rugs in Liora Manné’s Cabana doormat collection are made from coir. Coir is an eco-friendly fiber made from the outer shell of a coconut and is known for its great strength and durability, not to mention it’s great cleanability, which is a major crowd pleaser.

We recommend welcoming guests into your home with a Liora Manné doormat to express your laid back attitude and chill vibes.

Synthetic Materials

Most of the Liora Manné rugs are made of 100% polypropylene material. This allows for a durable and low maintenance rug, perfect for a long lifespan in the ever-changing home. With a polypropylene rug, the options are truly endless; you can place it in an indoor/outdoor space or multifunctional room due to its versatility.

These rugs are incredibly easy to clean, mold resistant, and simple to maintain all year long, while still achieving the exceptional vibrancy of Liora Manné design you want in your area rug.

How Liora Manné Crafts Her Rugs

Each Liora Manné rug begins with the Lamontage design process. Basically, what this allows for is the utilization of textiles to elevate each of Liora’s designs. She starts with an idea, then sparks it into something greater with her team of hand artisans, which then transforms these textile designs into your own work of machine made art for your home.

Liora Manné rugs are all made via a machine loom process. Don’t let this fact steer you away from her wonderful craftsmanship, however; all of her designs remain as intricate and beautiful as ever.

Power loom construction is used in the Liora Manné rug collection. Each machine can be individually adjusted to create different sizes, densities, colors, and pile heights. Machine made rugs are affordable and easy to make, yet still incredibly well made and sturdy. This allows you to keep it for ages, or change up your style every once in a while.
