News! The Pendula Tapestry Rug Collection
Vandra Rugs is proud to announce its collaboration with designer Claire Fouché to unveil The Pendula Collection, a captivating tapestry collection inspired by British embroidery and South African floral motifs.

Claire Fouché is a multi-disciplinary designer whose work spans from jewellery design at Fabergé to interior decoration, textile art and textile design. With a passion for storytelling and a keen eye for detail, her designs reflect her diverse cultural experiences and creative exploration.

 

Heritage Harmony: English Embroidery Meets African Flora
The inspiration for Pendula comes from Claire Fouché’s encounter with a magnificent 18th-century embroidery at Parham, a stately home in West Sussex. Captivated by the blend of intricate details and contemporary shapes, she sought to create a tapestry design with a similar sense of elegance but also a touch of modernity. Drawing inspiration from her time in South Africa, she incorporated native floral motifs like the King Protea, Protea Aristata and Pendula, as well as Cape Forget-me-Nots and ‘Fynbos’ evergreens. The tapestry rug Pendula is handwoven in sizes to your specification up to 10 meters in both length and width and is offered in three original colourways African Earth Brown, Eucalyptus Green and Noble Blue as well as in bespoke colours. The Pendula Collection will be on view at Sinclair Till 72 Pimlico Road during London Craft Week 13-17 May 9:30-16:30 with a cocktail evening Wednesday 15th May 6-9 pm.

News! Designer rug Velvet Check by Maja Johansson Starander

A calm base with a check pattern that offers focus and harmony to the room.

Within the rug different weaving techniques are used with windows of flat woven twill structure, framed by rya knotted lines, and tighter single weave for contrast and depth. I have a special love for woven rugs with a frame design, and with Vandra Rugs weaving atelier’s handweaving this is possible to create. Here, stripes of rya knots in wool with flat woven twill in between, creates a luxurious and elegant frame. Between these lines, hidden like gems, broken up rows of metallic yarn adds a charming detail, combining traditional elegance with a touch of fantasy. Velvet check comes in colours: Neutral, Copper, Golden, and Salt and pepper.

Our weaving atelier has been relocated to Kosiv in the Carpathian mountains.

The Vandra Rugs weaving atelier in Ukraine has been moved to a new location in the Carpathian Mountains, far from the Russian and Belarus’ borders. After careful analysis, the small historic town of Kosiv in western Ukraine, close to the border of Romania, and known for its artistic handicrafts and kelims, was selected as the new location for our weaving atelier. We believe Kosiv offers a safer place to live and work for our weavers and their families and a majority of weavers and staff have chosen to relocate with us.
