The hand-tufted 'Geometric Seascapes' range provides contemporary colour combinations, mixed with strong patterns, adding a distinctive modern look to today's interiors. The range feature a quality hand-tufted 100% wool thick pile, which is durable and soft to the touch. The patterns are hand carved for added design effect.

Hand-woven 'Reef' collection rugs are woven in Portugal by expert artisan weavers, wool and viscose linen yarns are interlaced across the length and width of the rug, in striking decorative patterns. Seeped in family tradition and island heritage, the range take its name from the reefs and fishing marks off the coast of Guernsey; island locations frequently fished by Claire’s Dad, a fisherman of many generations. Rugged reefs and ever-changing ocean landscapes are referenced in the woven structures that mesh together colour and form to enrich textural details. These unique new flat weaves offer timeless and versatile designs.

The hand-knotted designs take inspiration from Guernsey's natural 'Island Rhythms' - the ebb and flow of the sea's waves, wind-sculpted sand dunes, and the shifting coastal light. The ancient craft of hand knotting rugs is highly specialised, requiring remarkable precision and patience, and many artisan weaver hours. Thousands upon thousands of knots are hand tied around individual threads and warp strings, on specially designed looms, to create the rhythmic and abstract patterns of this beautiful collection. Each knotted rug is a unique, hand made work of art, designed to last a lifetime. Hand-knotted in India, this rug is made from 100% wool for durability and softness underfoot, and features loop pile techniques to accentuate the colour and pattern details.

All rugs are available from stock in three sizes, or can be custom ordered to specific dimensions.
