About Us

The Rug Company, founded in 1997 in London, was born out of a passion for quality, design, craftsmanship and service, credentials which have enabled it to transform an industry and establish itself internationally as the leading name for the finest handmade rugs in the world. The Rug Company’s rugs are the result of the shared dedication of a diverse network of people, from the skilled weavers in Nepalese mills, to the teams laying the finished rugs in homes around the globe. Age-old weaving techniques handed down through generations of Kathmandu craftsman create the rugs, each an individual work of art. Every rug is traditionally made but designed for modern living and created using the very best natural materials, to preserve and ensure durability. With a little care, each rug should last a lifetime.
