With that in mind, in today’s blog post we’ll introduce you to some of the most popular brands you’ll find in our online rug shop.

Arte Espina

Arte Espina is a rug designer based in Denmark. The core design team is made up of five very talented ladies, all of whom leverage their extensive experience to create truly special modern rugs. Art Espina is also known for its patented material Espirelle, which you won’t find in any other rug except those produced by the Arte Espina team.


Founded in the 1960s by Soli Kelaty, Asiatic is a rug brand that has already stood the test of time. With over 50 years in the industry, it’s easy to see why they are so well known for creating innovative and eye-catching rug designs. The company is based in London, but sources all of the materials used in its rugs from many far-flung corners of the globe.


Created by Susie and Doug Tompkins way back in 1968, Esprit rugs have always been dedicated to creating rugs that merge colour, design, and style. The brand has always used expert craftsmen along with premium quality yarns and fabrics to create rugs that offer longevity and visual appeal.
