At the age of 102, Hungarian designer, Eva Zeisel, began her collaboration with The Rug Company.
Best known for her ceramics, many of which are in museums around the world, the icon has a long list of accolades, including creating the first all-white tea set, and has received many honours for her achievements.
Despite being a centenarian, Zeisel’s contemporary rug designs encapsulate the organic and sensuous aesthetic of her work. Sadly, Eva died in 2011, but her legacy lives on through her designs.
Eva Zeisel’s Lacy X rug was originally designed as a pattern for ceramic tiles. The striking motif is hand knotted in pale gold silk which is subtly raised from the wool background, producing a tactile 3D effect."
