About This Rug
Hand knotted in afghan ghazni wool, Collage Span is derived from an original artwork and made in collaboration with the Sandra Blow Estate.


One of the pioneering figures in British abstract art and a trailblazer among women artists, Sandra Blow began her career in 1941, enrolling at St Martin’s School of Art aged just 16. Over the following six decades, her expressive, large-scale and colourful canvasses – often incorporating ‘non-art’ materials such as sawdust and sackcloth – earned her exhibitions at some of the world’s most prestigious galleries, won her a teaching position at the Royal College of Art – which she held for 10 years – and had her elected to the Royal Academy. Since her death, aged 80, Blow has been honoured with a Tate Britain retrospective and a biography.
