ANCIENT LUXURY FOR THE MODERN AGE
In February 2016, bespoke rug designer Luke Irwin unearthed an ancient secret lying beneath his Wiltshire home – an intricate mosaic forming part of Britain’s most magnificent Roman villa. That chance encounter spurred Irwin to innovate an incredible collection of mosaic-inspired rugs, transforming an ancient marker of luxury for the modern age.
SILK AND STONE
In a stone palette of creams and greys, the Scipio design brings a classical air into any room in your choice of dimensions – yet one that has been slowly eroded by the sands of time. Using an iron oxide solution at the washing stage of creation, woollen areas melt away leaving a mosaicked plane of Persian hand-knotted silk with an elegantly distressed aesthetic.
The distribution of colouring is truly unique to each piece, courtesy of the rug’s entirely hand-made production by skilled artisans in India. Several months of crafting using traditional techniques, from fibre to finish, ensure a masterpiece of the highest quality.
