About Michael Rugs

At Michael Rugs, our goals are to coordinate hand made rugs across a diverse range of lifestyles, and budgets to simplify the shopping process. We collaborate with designers, spinners and weavers, to the people who deliver the finished product. Resulting in a beautiful handmade rug that will last for generations. 

We share a collective pride that we select and source the finest rugs to you. Undoubtedly a bold claim, but one that our consumers believe to be true. Sourcing interesting, exceptional pieces requires travel, and having the ability to spot the extraordinary. We know that during the months or years it takes to make each of these magnificent rugs, we use the same undiluted craft that have been used many centuries ago by shepherds.

We understand the importance of the raw material because we know that a rug is only as good as the fiber it is woven from. We use sustainable non toxic fibers such as high quality wool, that is rich in natural lanolin. It must be handled by the spinners, weavers and dyers with such reverence that it loses none of its extraordinary properties.

We are consumed by the importance of design. We want to work with designers whose commercial success is not a goal but a by-product of their creativity, ability and originality.

We understand the importance of selecting the right rug for each room and we appreciated that this is a process that will take time and can't be hurried.

History

Established in 1998.

We have endeavored to provide the most desirable rugs in the world. Uniquely, we achieve this by selecting rugs that have the ancient craft of rug making with the creative brilliance of some of today's most talented designers. That's why the rugs we select are beautiful, distinctive and original.

We don't cut corners and truly understand the unique heritage and significance of traditional rug artisanship. The weavers we work with continue to craft the rugs entirely by hand, using the very same techniques their ancestors did. This ensures that every handmade piece is entirely individual. We're obsessive about good design and are always striving to innovate and inspire.

We understand the importance of service and our sales team not only have an expert understanding of the rugs but also how to best use and place them. They will go to great lengths to guide you through the rug buying process, helping you find the perfect piece.
