We specialise in unique handwoven rugs
Can’t believe it is over a decade now since Emily’s House Rugs came to life in 2009. With a large selection of unique handwoven carpets in stock, I always have something to floor-cover your need!
From vintage Moroccan Berber rugs, Beni Ouarain and nomadic rugs to Turkish kilims, rag rugs and tribal flatweaves. The vintage and midcentury rugs have aways been an integral part of the collection. They have been handwoven by women for their everyday use as life was largely spend on the floor. The rugs were being used as bedding, blankets or protection against the stony ground.
One of the main characteristics of handwoven tribal rugs is their free-flow design with lack of symmetry. The design scheme of these carpets shows abstract geometric compositions with the traditional simple motifs such as lozenges, triangles, crosses etc.
In our new made rug selection you will find handwoven rugs with a more contemporary look and feel. This includes new made Beni ouarain carpets as well as new Indian jute rugs. These rugs are all handwoven in cooperatives, using premium qualities.
With the extra large rug collection we see things even bigger with carpets in sizes well over 200x300cm. The large sizes are often antique oriental rugs or completely new made carpets with each their individual design. The compositions are often more complex and its colour palettes can be extremely diverse.
With the extra large collection I try to complement the vintage rugs and Anatlian village rugs, as the tribal rugs generally do not go much larger than 200cm wide.
Then there is also our bespoke service, which offers unique handwoven rugs in your specific design and requirements. This also includes a customised service like reducing existing rugs in size, adding borders or details to match a specific sofa colour, etc.
All the rugs in the collection are handpicked for their unique beauty and will make your floor look fantastic!
