“There is a three-dimensionality to rug design; you design it, work on the pattern, match the wool and the colour and so on, so there’s a lot of variation in the rugs you make.” Jay Osgerby
“We learnt a hell of a lot working on this collection. The great thing about rugs is that they take 16 weeks to make, so there’s an element of surprise.” Edward Barber
Tiger is part of Edward Barber & Jay Osgerby's animal rug collection. Each rug portrays the characteristics of the animal it features. This elegant tiger is on a nocturnal hunt, its vibrant colouring standing out against the night sky.
