Rugs & Carpets
The Rug Shop of Tunbridge Wells offers a wide range of hand-knotted rugs, including modern, oriental, traditional, and classic hand-made rugs & carpets.
Our wide range includes rugs and carpets from the world’s most renowned rug weaving nations, including Persian rugs, Afghan rugs, Indian rugs and Nepalese rugs (among others).
After nearly three years of production, our new and exciting autumn range has finally arrived. Each of these new pieces draw inspiration from from some of the finest Oriental rugs in existence. The designs we created are more contemporary versions of the traditional Persian patterns. We wanted the rugs to really capture the style of the worlds best antique pieces, so the dyeing process was especially important. Each rug uses finely spun sheep wool that has been dyed using natural dyes. The methods used in this process are almost identical to those used more than a century ago. The soft blues, creams, ochre and terracotta colouring found within all of these rugs reminds us of the autumn leaves, which is why we have named this new selection our "Autumn Range".

View Rugs by Colour
Traditional and classic rugs and carpets are typically woven in rich, deep colours such as red and blue. Historically, these were the predominant vegetable dyes available, hence the popularity in rug weaving. Those carpets with more modern origin are typically produced with more muted and subtle colours, such as terracotta, teal, grey etc. Of course, as always, there are exceptions.
Rugs are available in different sizes and shapes. On selecting a rug size for your room, it is often wise to consider how you wish your rug to look in relation to the room furniture. Below, we have included some living room plan views to give an indication of the relative size of the standard sized rugs (with respect to regular sized 3-seater and 2-seater sofas).
In addition small mats and runners are also available (in a range of widths and lengths).
If you require a rug of custom-made size, please let us know. We can accommodate special requests.
