  • About This Design
    Inspired by an exquisite hand crafted feather butterfly from Sarah Burton's inaugural Folklore collection, Monarch is hand woven in silk to capture the shimmering, hypnotic movement of this delicate motif. The dramatic peppery hues of the Monarch Fire are a striking counterpart to the gentle tones of Monarch Smoke.
  • Designer Story

    Initially trained on Savile Row, Alexander McQueen was quickly distinguished as a ground-breaking, unconventional and lavish fashion designer.

    Renowned for his theatrical fashion shows, macabre motifs, ‘bumster’ trousers and sculpted silhouettes, he added fantasy and rebellion to all his creations. McQueen (or ‘Lee’ to those close to him) graduated from Central St Martins in 1995. The following year he was appointed head designer at Givenchy, before establishing his eponymous label in 2001. With numerous celebrity patrons and adoring fans, his name and ‘genius’ is recognized worldwide.

    Three years in the making, Alexander McQueen’s rug collection took craftsmanship to couture levels, encapsulating The Rug Company and McQueen’s combined commitment to arresting design, superior quality and skilled craftsmanship. The collection won the award for ‘Fashion’s Contribution to Design’ at the 2010 Elle Decoration British Design Awards.

    McQueen tragically died on 11 February 2010. The custodian for the Alexander McQueen brand is now his right-hand woman, Sarah Burton, who has earned her own international success for her beautiful creations, honouring Lee’s vision whilst still accomplishing her own aesthetic.

  • Craftsmanship

    This rug is entirely handmade, from the spinning of the silk 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. The charm of the rug lies in the lustre that can only be achieved by weaving the finest natural silk. 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.
