  • About This Design
    This collection of three tartan designs is quintessential Westwood. The plaid motif has become synonymous with the punk movement and Vivienne's designs have come to symbolise an entire decade of British life. 'Fire', 'Cave Girl' and 'Flintstone' are hand woven wool tapestries, backed with deliciously soft cashmere and available from stock in a range of sizes.
  • Designer Story

    Always at the forefront of cultural trends, Vivienne Westwood is considered to be one of the most original and influential designers of our time.

    Gentle parody of Establishment, a playful mix of British fabrics, sheer eccentricity and a keen curiosity is where Westwood delights and excels. Even the most hardened of Anglophiles went weak in the knees when Westwood and The Rug Company joined forces in 2005. Renowned for unique, handmade rugs and collaborating with great designers, the marriage of unconformity and Union Jack waving Englishness continues to enrapture legions of fans. Together The Rug Company and Westwood have created brilliant oversize magnolia blooms and the now infamous VW Flag in rich wool Aubusson. Westwood's tattered and tarnished Union Jack flag is unconventional “patriotism” at its best.

    Westwood once said of her designs, "My aim is to make the poor look rich and the rich look poor." According to such logic, the Vivienne Westwood rugs, cushions and wallhangings look fabulously poor in every sense of the word.

  • Craftsmanship

    This rug is entirely handmade. Aubusson tapestry is a very fine flat-weave quality originating in France which has been celebrated for centuries. Our designers have married this traditional and meticulous craftsmanship with their unique sense of pattern and colour. The finished rug is very fine yet strong, and works perfectly as a floor rug with the non-slip underlay supplied.
