About Us

Award Winning Interior Design

We focus on creating beautiful, original pieces of art for the floor. With bold colours, contemporary designs, and refined detailing; we believe that modern rugs are so much more than floor coverings.

At Mae Artisan Rugs, the rug is reinvented as an art piece, a luxurious focal point within a room. The diversity of materials, colours and patterns now available allow endless creative possibilities and bespoke rugs can be created to effortlessly unite any interior setting.

Our Focus on Quality

Our extensive range includes both, contemporary and traditional pieces. In addition, we have a focused service offering the design of customized, bespoke rugs. At Mae Artisan Rugs we value the heritage of traditional rug artisanship and we work closely with our offices in India, Tibet and Nepal to create rugs of the highest quality.

Our company manages all aspects of its manufacturing from the design of its collections and bespoke pieces, sourcing of raw materials, dyeing and spinning of wool, to weaving of all of our rugs. This attention to detail has allowed us to develop a unique product range that is globally competitive in cost, quality, and design, with a focus on highly skilled craftsmanship.
