Mary Katrantzou is a Greek fashion designer based in London. She grew up in Athens with her mother, an interior designer, and her father, a textile engineer. Originally destined to work in interiors, she studied Architecture at RISD in the US, before switching to textile design at Central Saint Martins in London. Her final graduation collection took the industry by storm, featuring trompe l’oeil prints of oversized jewellery on jersey-bonded dresses.
Dubbed “The Queen of Print”, Katrantzou’s cult brand changed the face of 21st century fashion, inspiring high fashion and high street designers alike. Refining her signature aesthetic, Katrantzou has expanded the complexity of her textile beyond print, translating her visuals to knit, digital craftsmanship, and now rugs. Last year she celebrated 10 years since launching her label, a recognition of her fearless and playful approach to design.
“I chose to collaborate with The Rug Company as there was an authentic synergy between the two brands - a genuine appreciation for craftsmanship and a passion for bold patterns and unique beauty, values which we share at Mary Katrantzou.”
Garden of Eden
Garden of Eden layers highly detailed blooms, handknotted in a palette of soft blue and crisp white wool and silk yarns. The flowers are set against a black and white floral background, lending it a three-dimensional quality and referencing the ‘paint by numbers’ art, which inspired it.
