Freestile is a new concept in carpet design, created by taking a 2m x 2m large-scale design template and cutting it into 16 traditional carpet modules. The modules are installed at random intervals to create a continuous design transition that cleverly adapts from the original and is interchangeable.

Freestyle is available in 16 styles, each with four colour tones producing a palette of 64 options. The high colour intensity is achieved by a unique printing process impregnated into a newly developed, high-tech, woven yarn construction.

Rug formats and customised designs are also produced.

The judges said:
