About

CLASSICAL CUES

Suggesting hints of classical architecture, the faded impressions of a monumental border surround the Caractacus rug from Luke Irwin – an intriguing, mosaic-like design inspired by the serendipitous discovery of a magnificent, ancient Roman villa lying beneath the designer’s Wiltshire farmhouse in 2016.

ELEGANTLY DISTRESSED

Rather than a simple pastiche of Roman mosaics, this fascinating floorcovering draws attention to the evolution of eras. Distressed areas, innovatively incorporated using an oxidising technique, transform the Persian hand-knotted silk creation into a powerful trigger for the contemplation of 2000 years of history and an enriched perspective into our own age.

MASTERED TRADITIONS

Each stage of the rug’s construction – from carding and spinning the fibres through to carving and finishing – is achieved entirely by hand. Placing traditional, ethical production front and centre, these time-honoured techniques are performed by master craftspeople in India.
