‘I gather inspiration from many sources; my interior design practice where I work with wonderful wall coverings and stunning fabrics, my travels to beautiful and exciting places, the bark on a tree, a pebble from the beach, the inside of a shell, wild seas, leaves, the list goes on…..

If your space requires something unique Katherine Richards will personally work with you to create a rug perfect for you

There are more than 2,000 colours to choose from and the rugs are made from beautiful natural yarns such as New Zealand wool, mohair, and hand spun silk. The best quality Viscose or Tencel, which will add irresistible sheen, can also be used

At the end of the design process you can be sure of lasting satisfaction and the guarantee that you have a one off original piece which will never be repeated for any other client


The workers we employ weave to the highest standards and don’t mass produce, so nothing is rushed. The yarns are hand dyed and the rugs woven and finished on site in a small third generation family run establishment in India

Every piece is dyed, woven and washed with extreme care and fastidious skill using traditional techniques.
No computers, no machines, no noise

The workrooms surround a pretty courtyard with trees. ‘It’s a beautiful eye opener and refreshing to see such a peaceful and calm working environment.’
The finest yarns are used which gives these rugs the stunning finish the designs deserve

Purchasing a Katherine Richards rug not only means you will be in possession of a beautiful piece of floor art, but you will also be helping to make a positive difference to disadvantaged local communities. Our rugs are made ethically and we support local independent manufacturers

We design unusual, contemporary, hand knotted rugs made in India using natural yarns and dramatic colour combinations. Delivering rugs in Britain, Europe and worldwide
