I was offered an opportunity to design a rug, which of course I jumped at. It was quite a high spec rug with 100 knots per square inch, so I could get quite a tight technical pattern on it. 

I had been working on more complicated repeat patterns of late and so I really wanted to make one of these repeats into a rug.

The design with white and black was an old design which I wanted to re-work so I set to work on updating it a bit. The result is the green repeat, which is repeated 4 times here.

After this I met with the rug company and picked some colors. Once these were chosen, I selected a piece of the pattern to be made in a sample. This would take a month to make.
