  • About This Design

    Lacy X was originally designed as a pattern for ceramic tiles. The motif is hand knotted in pale gold silk which is subtly raised from the wool background, producing a tactile 3D effect.

  • Designer Story

    At the grand age of 102, the legendary industrial designer, Eva Zeisel, began her collaboration with The Rug Company. 

    Born in Hungary, she is mostly known for her ceramic designs (many of which can be found in illustrious design museums around the world, including Moma). Despite being a centegenarian, Zeisel stunned The Rug Company with her incredibly contemporary rug designs, which encapsulate the organic and sensuous aesthetic of her work. 

    A design icon, Zeisel has a long list of accolades, including creating the first all-white tea set.  She has received many honors for her outstanding achievements, including honorary doctorates and a Cooper-Hewitt lifetime award, not to mention a lunch invitation at the White House in 2006.

    Sadly, Eva died in December 2011 but her legacy lives on.

  • Craftsmanship

    This rug is entirely handmade, from the spinning of the yarns 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 finest natural yarns; the Tibetan wool is renowned for its softness and durability, while the fine silk brings a delicate lustre that enhances the design of the rug. 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.
