Jenny Jones, who designed Ruby Room and other 50 modern rugs in this collection, talks about each piece in artistic terms: “Like fine paintings that adorn the floor, beautiful handcrafted carpets play an invaluable part in creating the style of a room and bring together all the separate elements of the interior design to create one harmonious overall story”.

“Traditional and contemporary hand-made carpets are the ultimate lifestyle statement and exemplify the best of modern interior design and artisan skills.” says one of the competition judges, Nina Yashar.

The winning piece has a creation time of 8 months and was hand-woven by Sayrana, mother of three children in her home in Sahsawan village, Uttar Pradesh state, India.
