Embrace rug art in the highest quality imaginable with a beautiful hand knotted rug by photographer Stu Gibson.
Hand knotted rugs are the very pinnacle of rug making craft. Each knot of wool is tied and then cut by hand allowing for highly detailed pieces that will last with care, well over a lifetime. Our skilled artisans weave up to 10cm per day using our beautiful Himalayan wool.
You’ll find a Goodweave label attached to each of our rugs certifying them free from child labour.
About the artist: Stu Gibson
Stuart Gibson is an internationally recognised photographer from Tasmania, Australia. With a focus on surf, landscape and aerial photography.
Every knot, tuft and weave that goes into creating your piece of floor art is done by the skilled hand of our artisan weavers.
Artists within their own right, our weavers use ancient techniques passed on through generations and unchanged over time. Each rug we create is made using 100% Recycled plastic transforming mountains of unwanted plastic bottles from landfills around the world into a piece of limited-edition floor art. Plastic fibres are carded, threaded, spun and brushed in the same way as wool to create a luxurious and malleable yarn.
The story of each rug is a complete circle of collaboration. From the graphic artists that use modern computerised techniques to produce each design, The Knot Collective which guide the creative process to realise the artists work within the new medium of a rug and then finally the real magic when each design comes to life on the loom.
Reaching across the globe everyone involved in this story stays true to the mindset of slow design, creating our rugs from sustainable materials and using production processes that impact to create positive changes for the environment and human population.
Your rug will empower the fight to end child labour
152 million children are currently the victims of child labour and the choices we make as consumers help determine whether these children are free to have a real childhood or be forced into labour or slavery. Will their hands paint, draw and colour — or harvest, sew and glue? It’s up to us.
As a partner of Goodweave, The Knot Collective is fully opposed to child labour of any nature. Being a member of GoodWeave ensures your rug is ethically made by adult artisans, not children.
A portion of our profits from every rug sold is donated back into GoodWeave helping to fulfil their mission to create a market demand for certified child-labour-free rugs, monitor supply chains and provide critical services for weaving families.
Goodweave is dedicated to the rescue and education of every child, creating a safe and hopeful environment in which to thrive. Goodweave will exist until there are no more children to save.
