A fabulous collection of antique & vintage rugs, carpets & runners are on display in the studio throughout October. Older rugs offer a nostalgic glimpse into the past, to a time when these little gems were made; they continue to inspire the rug makers of today. All the pieces in this collection have been through our workshops, preserved and cleaned, thus enhancing the wonderful, rich old colours of the natural dyes and lustrous wools. In this world of sustainability. antiques are experiencing a resurgance, capturing a moment of times-past and decorating your home with a sense of history.
Visit our very own ‘repair shop’ where our skilled restorers will be demonstrating restoration and conservation techniques and offering advice on restoration, cleaning and aftercare for your rugs.
The Rug & Carpet Studio offers the finest selection of handmade rugs and carpets all individually selected for quality and artistic merit. If you admire handmade rugs, you will know each one is unique and is brought to life by unknown artists who have passed on their skills through the generations.
Over twenty-five years of working within the fascinating world of rugs and carpets has taken us all over the world. We have visited craftsmen in nomadic tents in the Zagros mountains of southern Iran, and all manner of warehouses and bazaars, to allow us to showcase the best possible stock in our studio.
We are proud to be one of the few places in the country offering specialised restoration, conservation and cleaning for European and Oriental rugs and carpets. The Rug & Carpet Studio’s skilled, in-house restoration and conservation team has rescued from neglect beautiful rugs discovered in the grandest of stately homes and the humblest of country cottages and brought them back to life. We are accredited through ICON (the Institute of Conservation).
