ABOUT THIS RUG

The initial spark for this design came from a necklace. It was created by a French jewelry designer in the 1940s. As the shapes evolved from organic to geometric, the design took on the feel of the Bauhaus style, a 20th century movement that united fine arts through craft.

Can be produced to colour, size and weave specifications.
