"Although it does look like a flattened spider in repeat, it is called Spider after the web it spins. It is an arrangement of spokes and triangles giving the labyrinth effect of a spiders web. It works well in these soft, silky, pussy- willow colours." Neisha Crosland
Neisha Crosland is known for her textile designs with a chic, modern aesthetic; her designs combine exquisite forms with clever colour palettes.
Crosland has created a collection of rugs for The Rug Company that reflect her effortless style and masterful sense of shape and form. The designs play on the differing textures of wool and silk to fully complement the understated designs whose simple organic and geometric forms work beautifully in a range of interior styles. Influences for the collection include a beaded necklace, alluding to the feminine nature of her designs. The simplicity of the forms and the play of light and dark in each of them translate beautifully into the scale and texture of the rugs. Crosland recently added to her existing collection with Rosa and Spider hand knotted wool and silk rugs, as well as Razor, Pyramid Trellis and Moorish Circles which explore the qualities of hand woven contemporary tapestry rugs.
