The Rug Company combines the ancient craft of rug making with innovative contemporary design. Their handmade rugs are woven on traditional looms using unique Tibetan knots and once complete are hand-washed and dried on the rooftops of Kathmandu. They are finished by hand, which includes fine hairline carving to smooth any contours on the surface of the pile.
The UK company has collaborated with the world’s most inspired and respected designers. Whether masters of print, fashion, art, architecture, interior or product design, The Rug Company works closely with each one, harnessing their creative brilliance and translating their unique vision into beautiful rugs.
