Co-Founder of The Rug Company, Christopher Sharp, has brought together the craft of rug making with contemporary design.
The Rug Company is now represented in twelve countries and offers a major source of employment in Nepal. In doing so, he has helped to invigorate an ancient craft and triggered a revolution in rugs.
Uniquely, Sharp has commissioned some of the world’s most influential designers and works closely with them to create collectable pieces that capture the spirit of our times.
“The secret to a perfect rug, is not rushing the process and being relentless in getting the quality, design and colour perfect. You must be willing to keep trying until you get it right. The Rug Company has always been very strong on pattern. We like bold adventurous design.” Christopher Sharp
Hue Pale utilises a cool palette of grey, stone, aqua and sage. The variety in colour means that this design is very challenging to make. The larger rectangles are hand knotted in Tibetan wool, with the smaller ones in hand spun silk.
