Collab Alert: Christopher Kane X The Rug Company

The Scottish designer has teamed up with the heritage brand to create a stunning range.

One decks floors far and wide with the finest threads, the other is a stalwart of the British fashion scene. So it’s no surprise a collaboration between The Rug Company and Christopher Kane should get tongues wagging.

The collection features five handcrafted rugs which run the style gamut from botanical-inspired prints to the designer’s distinctly modern take on pattern.

Wave Construct Handknotted Tibetan wool and silk

As a nod to Kane’s Lanarkshire roots there are Scottish threads running through much of the collection. The design of Wave Construct (above) sees him playing with waves and straight lines.

The geometric design of Grid Construct (above) is inspired by the constructivism movement and nods to the Mackintosh chairs in Glasgow’s famous Willow Tearooms.

The Botanical Anatomy Nude rug is made of handknotted Tibetan wool and silk

Inspired by Kane’s botanical fashion collection, the Botanical Anatomy rug subverts and amplifies the traditional floral motif to create a highly decorative statement design. Handknotted from a combination of rich silk yarns and Tibetan wool, the rug is available in two pared-back dusky colours, nude (above) or grey.

 

Botanical Anatomy Cushion

There’s even a signature cushion in the range, inspired by Kane’s famous botanical fashion collection. Called Botanical Anatomy, the colourful, playful design uses Aubusson tapestry to subvert the traditional floral motif.

Scottish fashion designer Christopher Kane, 35

Rugs start at £1,729 and the cushion is £550. For more information visit www.therugcompany.com
