Cashmere wool fiber is obtained from “Cashmere goats.” Historically, fine-haired Cashmere goats have been called Capra hircus laniger, as if they were a subspecies of the domestic goat Capra Hircus. Cashmere goats produce a double fleece that consists of a fine, soft undercoat or under-down of hair mingled with a straighter and much coarser outer coating of hair called Guard Hair. For the fine under-down to be sold and processed further, it must be de-haired. De-hairing is a mechanical process that separates the coarse hairs from the fine hair. After this separating process the resulting premium “cashmere” is ready to be dyed and converted into yarn.
Genuine Imported Leathers
In order to distinguish Rove's line of genuine imported full leathers from generic leathers offered elsewhere that make similar claims of quality, we highly encourage you to request free swatches from each store and compare them side by side!
We are confident you will see the difference our quality makes. Rove products are designed to last for years thus it is only fitting that great attention is owed to the material and craftsmanship of each piece.
Important: We do our best to provide quality pictures but leather colors will look different under different lighting. Pictures shown on the website should be viewed as an approximation under studio lighting, for accurate color comparison please request our swatches.
Florence Knoll gained much of her design prowess while studying under other pioneering modern designers such as Mies van der Rohe. Her designs are noticeably influenced by this education, however they remain at all times recognizable as creations from the mind of Florence Knoll.
One such design is the Florence Sofa. The sleek silhouette serves to encompass an inherently comfortable and wide seat with high raised armrests. The geometric structure and deep-seated buttons immediately conjure up images of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s Barcelona Chair, in what can only be a complimentary comparison.
Florence Knoll was one of the founding partners of Knoll Associates, along with her husband, Hans Knoll. A former student of the famed Mies van der Rohe and Eliel Saarinen, she held that architecture and design should be combined. Knoll Associates was so successful with this mindset that they managed to grow, even during the American wartime economy. The modern mid century designer also created a variety of products and furniture, from chairs to casegoods. Though she never wanted to be considered as a furniture designer, it is clear that she had a significant effect on the period as a creator and as a innovator.
