After graduating from the Ruskin School of Art, University of Oxford, Founder and Creative Director, Amber Rankin, built the brand with the aim of transforming traditional motifs into contemporary luxe. "I have always had a huge love for art and design - my parents have always been great admirers and collectors so I was exposed to it from a very young age. I've always loved the tradition that comes with a luxury, antique rug and how powerful it is to transform that sense of superior craftsmanship within the realm of contemporary design."
