The Rug Company was founded in 1997 with the aim of creating the most desirable rugs in the world. The concept was simple, but pioneering: to combine the ancient craft of rug-making with dazzling contemporary designs. We are obsessive about good design, always striving to innovate and inspire with our own collections. We truly understand the unique heritage and significance of traditional rug artisanship. Our weavers continue to craft the rugs entirely by hand, using the very same techniques as their ancestors. We understand the importance of the raw material because we know that a rug is only as good as the fibre it is woven from. We use wool that comes from high on the Tibetan plateau, wool that is so rich in natural lanolin that it is oily to the touch. It must be handled by the spinners, weavers and dyers with such reverence that it loses none of its extraordinary properties.
We collaborate with some of the world’s most inspirational designers, each a creative leader in their domain, including Paul Smith, Vivienne Westwood, Alexander McQueen, Diane von Furstenberg and Kelly Wearstler. We understand the importance of service and our sales team not only have an expert understanding of the rugs but also how to best use and place them. They will go to great lengths to guide you through the rug buying process, helping you find the perfect piece.
