Designer

Initially an abstract painter, the Slade School graduate won a Boise Traveling Fellowship to Peru in 1975. There, Farr was enraptured by pre-Columbian textiles and, determined to explore ways to marry his love of abstraction to ancient textile arts, he travelled to Western Turkey to learn rug making. His modernist interest in colour and form, married to the age-old techniques of hand dying and hand looming, helped make Christopher Farr one of the preeminent rug designers of today.
