Way back in 1981 Vivienne Westwood created her very first catwalk collection together with her then husband Malcolm McLaren. The swashbuckling theme was 'Pirates' and this Squiggles pattern was the key print. Designs do not come much more iconic than this, and The Rug Company is very proud to offer these hand knotted Tibetan wool versions in blue and red colourways.
This rug is entirely handmade, from the spinning of the wool to the weaving on the loom. It is unique, and has been crafted by weavers in the Kathmandu area, whose skills have been passed down through many generations. We use only the highest quality wool for our rugs, that of the Tibetan sheep, for its durability, rich texture and subtle colour variation. To this we have added the vision of a world class designer, and the result is a hand knotted contemporary rug of extraordinary beauty, which will itself become an heirloom to be treasured for years to come.
