Tufted magic...if you can think it, we can make it.

We are New Zealanders. We live in New Zealand. What is New Zealand known for? Sheep. Ergo: wool...

From our hills of New Zealand where we have happy sheep grazing, we are able to produce some of the best wool in the world. New Zealand Wool is known for its high quality in floor carpet and rugs. The wool is exported all over the world, and used as quality confirmation of material of choice for superior product. essenze is delighted to partake in this walk of fame, working with a fine rug manufacturing company, CRONZ, based in Christchurch, New Zealand.

The business is family owned and operated, and run with a sense of passion, enthusiasm and dedication to quality as often seen in family style businesses. The founder, John Wyma, has an engineering background and as such, managed to design and build machinery pushing the boundaries of loom tufted creations. This month at essenze, we are displaying 6 new styles of rugs that show 3D tufting, allowing waves of rolling merino to decorate the floors. Absolutely stunning.

essenze is adding some design content and courageous colours to the mix. We have designs by David Trubridge, Lucy Tupu and Jo Luping on the floor, with other standard rugs from round colour splashes to 2 x 3 meter heaven on floor softness. We work with you to design to suit you use, application, style and budget.

There are amazing tricks we have up our sleeve to assist you in the decision making process: from printing a full sized paper template, to 30 x 30cm samples in colours, yarn and style. Look at our wall of colour yarns, which we can play with and test to your hearts content. With CRONZ and essenze, our quality is guaranteed, our attention to detail even a tad OTT!

We LOVE CRONZ! And so will you.....
