Creating rugs by hand using fine materials like Tibetan wool and shimmering silk is a highly valued art form. Each rug is painstakingly woven by hand – the technique remains practically unchanged over many centuries – and uses traditional methods in the service of contemporary design. The captivating imperfections of natural fibres and the variations of the human touch are present in every step of the process, the result of a commitment to promote individuality and inspiration in all of its production. Each rug is truly unique unto itself, conceived in a journey through a sea of human hands weaving it into existence.

It is for this reason hand knots remain popular with today’s market. Clients see the value in an original handmade product and are prepared to wait up to 6 months for it.

Designer Rugs believes the rug is the heart of the home and the defining design factor in a space – a worthwhile investment and incredibly important to get right.
