Rug Producers

Since its founding, the British brand has brought together the creative vision of contemporary artists and designers with centuries-old weaving traditions from around the world.

Christopher Farr

We continue to protect and preserve the world’s weaving traditions while pushing at the creative possibilities of design.

Christopher Farr has maintained a dedication to quality and an uncomprimising pursuit of beauty that has helped revolutionise rug design and restore rug-making to the status of fine art. The company is an active member of Care and Fair and works with the initiative to improve living conditions for traditional rug makers and their families.

Christopher Farr undertakes extensive research to find the perfect blend of wool for its rugs. The rare blend of fleeces that it uses have taken years to source from countries across the globe. The fleeces are meticulously hand spun in order to retain the high lanolin content in the yarns, which over time creates a patina – a feature highly regarded in great antique oriental carpets. Drawing inspiration from the arts, Christopher Farr is renowned for its collaborations with international artists and archives, including Margo Selby, Matthew Hilton, Anni Albers and Joseph Albers.
