Claire Gaudion’s hand knotted designs take inspiration from Guernsey’s natural island rhythms - the ebb and flow of the sea’s waves, spring to nip tides, wind-sculpted sand dunes, and the shifting coastal light. Portinfer Rug is a beautiful nordic blue and has a warm brown loop pile pattern running through the centre.
The ancient craft of hand knotting rugs is highly specialised, requiring remarkable precision and patience, and many artisan weaver hours. Thousands upon thousands of knots are hand tied around individual threads and warp rods, on specially designed looms, to create the rhythmic and abstract patterns of this beautiful collection.
Each rug is a unique, hand made work of art, designed to last a lifetime. Hand-knotted in India, this rug is made from 100% wool for durability and softness underfoot, and features loop pile techniques to accentuate the colour and pattern details.
