  • About This Design
    "I predominantly use this star pattern carved into metallic leathers. I call it Star but depending on how you look at it you could see diamonds or little boxes too. The randomly shaped plain space through the centre cuts negative shapes out of the simple but effective geometry." Helen Amy Murray Star Wool is hand knotted from wool, and the motif is then carved into the surface by hand. It is available to order only.
  • Designer Story

    Helen Amy Murray is recognized for her hand-crafted creations that take inspiration from nature and form to create surface relief within textiles. 

    She had previously applied the techniques to leather and suede but The Rug Company enabled her to branch out into the medium of hand knotted rugs. The results are stunning and truly ground breaking. Her collection of decorative rugs succesfully translated her abstract designs into innovative, hand carved rugs. ‘Peony’ was awarded the Homes & Gardens award 2008 and the BIDA Award at Decorex Fair in the same year.

  • Craftsmanship

    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.
