ABOUT THIS RUG

From a carpet construction perspective this rug provides a clear contrast tot he others in the collection. It is hand knotted using a blend of wool yarn which provides a much more event tone to the color fields and a mores subtle movement, evoking depth and richness rather than intensity.

With the linear quality of this design there is no need for any extravagant dye effects and finishing techniques to distract from the elegant forms of Irene's work.

Can be produced to colour, size and weave specifications.

DESIGNER

IRENE INFANTES / 1989
Irene Infantes was born in Seville, south Spain, where she finished the European Baccalaureatte in Arts. In 2010 she moved to London in search of inspiration where she completed a BA in Textile Design at the Central Saint Martins School of Art and Design. During her studies Infantes was afforded the opportunity to design a special collection of prints for Anthropologie, to be sold in their latest shop opening in Spitalfields, London. She was also bestowed a 'Textprint' award which led her to exhibit her work at Chelsea College of Arts and the textile fair Premiere Vision in Paris, where she was shortlisted for the Clothworkers Interior Award.
Her work has been exhibited across the UK and throughout Europe, including the London Design Festival, London Design Business Centre, Lethaby Gallery. MoOD Brussels and Museum of Arts and Design in Hamburg.

Infantes defines herself as someone curious who is inspired by anything that is intriguing; ancestry, the meaning of colors and symbolism in all their obscure and apparent nature.
