A Journey of visions
Designed and conceived in Belgium, all JOV rugs are handmade in Europe, using materials of the highest premium. Our designers and makers combine knowledge with heritage, and quality with sustainability. At JOV, we are effectively balancing the traditional and the contemporary, while relying on the intelligent use of honest materials.
As a result, our rugs are journeys of visions through different atmospheres, senses, landscapes and colours. Each JOV rug tells a different story, evoking a different emotion.
Nature as a
The common ground of every vision and every rug is Nature. Nature provides us with the finest raw materials, such as wool, natural silk, Belgian linen, mohair, and cotton. With its sophisticated colours, muted shades and soft textures, Nature is also the main source of inspiration for every design. Inspiration through imagination.
The unique qualities of the materials combined with the imagination of natural elements give each rug its strong, pure and beautiful heart.
Made to last and be loved for generations
While our production is based in Europe, we source our materials across the world, carefully selecting the best quality and the most eco-friendly suppliers.
Our experience results in rugs of exceptional quality, with thoughtful patterns, exciting colour variations and refined natural textures all designed to evolve and withstand the pressures of time, and made to last and be loved for generations. Timeless designs, made in a traditional way for contemporary living.
With respect for our earth
JOV’s rugs go beyond beautiful. We believe in products that are unique and durable. Timeless elegance and long-lasting comfort are at the heart of everything we do. Since sustainability is also a part of JOV’s philosophy, it is naturally incorporated into all processes: from carefully choosing our suppliers, manufacturers and materials, to informing customers about how to care for products to prolong their lifespan.
The selection of a wide range of sustainable and innovative materials results from a continual research activity, capable of achieving high performance while preserving the quality and durability of the products.
