Florence Broadhurst rugs

Posted on Sat, 8 Sep 2007 by midcenturyjo


A different sort of WINKS this weekend. Robyn, one of our long term readers just sent this in. With 100 years of rug heritage and a highly successful flagship store in Battersea, Knots Interiors is thrilled to have the exclusive contract for Florence Broadhurst rugs launching at 100% Design,the UK’s premier contemporary interiors event at Earls Court on the 20th-23rd September 2007. The rugs are hand-knotted in Nepal, using pure Tibetan wool and silk to highlight and contrast Florence Broadhurst’s fantastic designs. You’ll recognise the Madam JoJo’s interior from our post earlier this week. Thanks for the luscious link Robyn.

Beautiful… although, when I think about how many thousands of pounds a Broadhurst rug will probably cost in London and then think about how many pence those women in Nepal are being paid per hour to make them, well, it takes the shine off it a bit! Ah well, I suppose that’s par for the course nowadays when manufacturing such products…. ?

Peggy says:

As a rug hater, I will concede that these are the most beautiful rugs I have ever seen.

Anon has strong points, but I am beginning to agree with you Kim and Jo – when stating a strong opinion use your name.

I find these exquisite, but would prefer them as paintings.

Thanks for the heads up!

Not always true, Tibet like many other rug exporting countries has trade associations and dealers understand that consumers want fair trade products, ultimatly it is down to the consumer to only buy Rugs that meet ethical requirements…best not to accept it as “par for the course”.

What wonderful designs. Do they make them in fabric – like the William Morris designs?
