Each rug is made-to-order and handknotted in a family-run mill in Bulgaria renowned for its distinguished heritage in weaving rugs for the British royal family, among countless other royal establishments across Europe. Our artisans' distinguished legacy of luxury and exceptional manufacturing quality is intrinsic to the high-end design of our rugs. Bulgaria’s rug weaving heritage and talent is sadly declining - Rankin Rugs focuses on funding, promoting and saving this ancient craft through one-of-a-kind, luxury design.
Clients are given the chance to experience Europe's most superior craftsmanship by transforming an ancient, ancestral hand knotting technique into a display of modern design. Rankin Rugs focuses on locally sourcing the finest materials from Bulgaria, and all rugs are created using original wooden looms and a traditional hand-knotting technique which has been passed down through the generations for hundreds of years. One which is rarely walked on outside of Europe's finest establishments.
We are committed to high-end quality craftsmanship and design, which means that all our rugs are made of the finest, locally-sourced wool which has been hand-dyed on-site using high quality, eco-friendly dyes. Bold and intricate patterns are meticulously produced to the finest detail and richest colour, with all 125,000 knots per sq.m knotted in place by hand. Final touches and decorative additions are made by hand in the Rankin Rugs studio in Oxfordshire.
