The Canterbury


This Art Nouveau design is a reproduction of a Donegal carpet sold at Sotheby’s New York in 2003. A balsam green border with accents of aubergine, dusty rose, spruce and slate surround the light pewter field.

Our rugs are hand knotted in northern India.  They are produced on upright wooden looms that reflect a handcraft dating back for more than 1,000 years.  A typical 8' x10' rug will have upwards of 575,000 hand-tied knots.  All our rugs are woven with 100% New Zealand wool.  The rugs use Swiss Chrome dyes versus traditional vegetable dyes, to ensure color-fastness and consistent color from rug to rug.  Every effort has been made to authentically reproduce Arts & Crafts rug patterns from the period.  As with the originals period rugs, knot density is a direct reflection of design complexity. Open patterns with large scale designs usually require 50-80 knots/inch. More intricate designs are higher.  Given the hand made nature of each rug, sizes are approximate.


The Canterbury Border rug has limited availability. Please call for size options and pricing.
