British fashion designer Giles Deacon is known for his playful, quirky, glamorous and sexy designs.
Many of his designs feature a signature ‘twist’, exemplifying his subversive aesthetic and rendering them conversational pieces. Before setting up his own label in 2003, Giles worked at Louis Vuitton, Bottega Venetta and Gucci. In 2010, he was also appointed Creative Director of French fashion house Emanuel Ungaro. He launched his groundbreaking first GILES collection at London Fashion Week in February 2004, styled by his friend Katie Grand, with the models Karen Elson, Lily Cole, Eva Herzigova and Linda Evangelista. The collection received international acclaim and began a renewed interest in London fashion. Ever since, he has continued to fine tune his vision of high craft mixed with wit, expertly bringing together superior craftsmanship with whimsical irreverence.
Giles Deacon’s rug designs are highly decorative and glamorous with a sexy, modern twist. With an unusual metal theme, these rugs are softened by the luxurious wool and silk threads. Elegantly irreverent, Giles’ rugs exemplify his subversive aesthetic.
This rug is entirely handmade, using a special weaving technique. The background is knotted by looping directly around the warp and weft, giving a flat but highly tactile finish. The silk motif is knotted in a soft short pile, which gives the pattern unique definition. We use only the finest natural yarns; the Tibetan wool for its softness and durability, the fine silk for its delicate lustre that enhances the design of the rug. The result is a unique hand knotted contemporary rug of extraordinary beauty, which will itself become an heirloom to be treasured for years to come.
