Jonathan Saunders for The Rug Company

The Rug Company has collaborated with celebrated fashion designer Jonathan Saunders for a second time. The striking collection reflects Saunders’s experiments in the interplay of colour, translucency and light using layers of coloured glass and resin as well as his interest in the weaving process.

Consisting of eight designs, including four runners, each design is handcrafted by The Rug Company’s team of weavers in Kathmandu using fine Tibetan wool and silk.  The designs are deceptively simple and have challenged the dye master and weaver to achieve the stunning colours and finish on each of the individual designs.

The collection will be presented in a new installation that will coincide with the London Design Festival, and is available to view from Monday 17thSeptember in the Kings Road showroom.   The installation will cover both floors of the showroom takes its lead from Saunders’s inspiration behind the collection and will encourage visitors to interact with the collection and to do their own exploration into how colour and light work together.
