The Brand

Parisian artist Marcel Zelmanovitch founded Diurne in 1982 originally to create one product, quality rugs.  Since then, the company has developed its product offering to include both original and designer creations:

  • Their in-house products are informed by their years of expertise in the field of carpet creation allowing them to offer a large panel of collections in a wide variety of materials and techniques, illustrating many facets of the decorative arts.

  • In addition, Diurne also edits a series of carpets by artists including Raphaël Navot, Marie Bastide, Luc Deflandre and will soon be adding others such as Charles Zana and Mattia Bonetti, all of whom express their artistic inspirations through this creative medium.

Indian Ancestral Techniques

For over forty years, Zelmanovitch has shown a relentless commitment to his team of master rug weavers in India and Nepal, and the time-honored techniques they use for the Diurne collection with the intent of preserving traditional weaving practices and the centuries-old legacies they represent.
