We’ve long been admirers of the beautiful rugs by Riviere Rugs. They have been a go-to for our Accouter Design team for years, featuring in their most special and exclusive interior design projects. This is why they were first on our wish list of brands we just had to feature on Bazaar. We’ve picked a small selection of our favourite Riviere rugs, which you can shop here.Riviere Rugs was founded in 2005 by Camilla & Leo Riviere. With backgrounds in art and design, they have a thorough understanding and appreciation of classical & modern architecture, paintings and interiors. Having also travelled extensively in Europe & Asia, their inspiration draws heavily on all these experiences.The collection is entirely handcrafted in Riviere’s own workshop in the Kathmandu valley of Nepal. Using only the finest grade, hand carded and hand spun Tibetan wool and pure Chinese silk, the rugs are hand woven with a minimum of 100 knots per square inch. In addition to wool and silk they offer a wide range of other yarns and knot counts including mohair, nettle, linen and botanic silk.Riviere rugs are unique – combining craftsmanship and creativity to produce pieces that are original, beautiful and will last for generations.
In an increasingly mass-produced world, they are proud to be part of a highly skilled artisan tradition.
We are sure you will love their stunning rugs as much as we do.
