Handwoven rugs you don’t see everywhere!
Let me introduce myself and take the opportunity to express my love for…. Belgium chocolates (my home country), my dog Stella (she loves being photographed on top of a carpet) and rugs …obviously.
It all started with my parents future shops, where as a child I spend all my weekends playing hide and seek with my sister under the made-up beds and roller skating between Cassina and B&B Italia.
I was always surrounded by beautiful interiors (and my dear sister) and loved decorating my room, and also being creative with fabrics, making my own pillows and patchwork backpacks.
Fast forward a few years… I moved into a flat in Antwerp and I did really struggle to find nice rugs. The carpets from my parent’s shops where just too contemporary and the oriental rugs where a bit too ‘full on’ for my taste.
While travelling to Middle East and North Africa I came across all these beautiful textiles and vintage Berber rugs. I then realised this is what I had been looking for to use in my flat without knowing I had been looking for this (you still there? this apparently also happens with finding *the one*) Opportunities arose and soon after Emily’s House was born.
The vintage and midcentury rugs have always been an integral part of the collection because I love all things old(er)! From vintage Moroccan Berber rugs to Beni Ouarain carpets, Gabbeh, Turkish kilims, rag rugs and tribal flatweaves.
There is also a growing selection of new made rugs, from thick braided jute rugs, new made Beni Ouarain carpets, bespoke flatweaves and handwoven pieces with short pile. All can be made in your favourite colour combo and size!
Moving on to the bigger fabric of my life, I am most happy looking for more carpets and inspiration. Those near and dear have been of great help to fine-tune ideas and push out this boat 🙏
Oh yes and I am not Emily, I named it after my daughter, euh… our daughter (in case he is reading this).. sounds much better than Katrien’s House… rite?
You have now come to the end of this page and if you re still with me, I would like to thank you… for your time!

Inspiring vintage and bespoke handwoven rugs, unique, beautiful and timeless!
Our Online Shop:
Finding the right rug for your home can be a bit like looking for needles in a haystack! eBay and auctions can be a bit of a minefield, with rugs not looking as expected or needing unexpected costs like washing, stretching or restoration! The bigger home stores simply don’t offer the same quality and you definately won’t get a highly unique and individual product!
Choosing the right one:
I am talking rugs… obviously! Rugs are so often just an afterthought…amirite? But not having the right rug can make a room feel very unsettled! Here are some rules of thumb that will help you choose the right style and size!
My carpets are my passion! All rugs are handpicked for their unique beauty and have a sophisticated and timeless look and feel to them.
The collection includes vintage rugs as well as new made carpets, all handwoven by craftswomen with affinity to tradition and handwoven with premium quality.
