For lovers of colour, textiles and quality British Craft.

Handwoven in my Bristol studio, this exclusive piece of contemporary craft brings a dash of colour and warmth to modern and traditional interiors.
This bespoke Krokbragd rug is heading to Decorex International 6-9 October 2019.
The exclusive design is also custom made to order, so clients can adapt the colours to fit in with their interior, or pick a combination to inspire a room make-over. The one in the photo measures 1mx1.6m
To help with decision making I post yarn samples and sketch up designs until everyone is happy that we’ve created the perfect rug.
About the weaving….
I trained in rug weaving almost 25 years ago and specialised in Krokbragd; a traditional Scandinavian technique.
To create the distinctive patterns of Krokbragd (pronounced Kruuk-bra-g-ed), I pass the shuttle three times to create each solid row of colour. It’s a slow technique, but the finish is exquisite, durable and long lasting. With proper care, these rugs will last a lifetime.
The rug is woven using a specific linen for the warp, and Axminster rug wool (80% wool/20% nylon) for the weft. The nylon blend offers resistance to stains and moths, and you care for the rug in a similar way to a quality carpet. Of course, you might choose to hang it on the wall using an easy to fix baton.
Knowing the maker of your rug gives you 100% reassurance that your investment was created ethically.
I’ve created a straightforward process for commissioning my bespoke rugs, to keep the production time realistic, and only charge what you would expect to pay any skilled worker.
I have a limited amount of time scheduled to weave these rugs in 2019, and the order book is now open. Drop me a line for prices, current lead times, any additional questions and to reserve your slot on my loom.
