Book a CPD

Join us for our BIID approved CPD on ‘Handmade Carpets & Rugs’

Mixing natural fibres with beauty, ethics and practicality

Our CPD examines the myths and realities of specifying hand-woven, hand-tufted and hand-knotted carpets and rugs. The seminar will take place in person either at our Chelsea Harbour Design Centre showroom, or our head office in Northamptonshire. We discuss raw materials, design, manufacturing, testing, labelling and maintenance, as well as the issue of affordability and suitability for residential and commercial applications.

By the end of the CPD you will have a greater understanding of:

  • How handmade carpets and rugs are made
  • Why ethical manufacturing matters
  • The differences between wool, viscose and lyocell
  • Why and where to specify handmade carpets and rugs
  • What to ask when specifying handmade carpets and rugs
  • What testing to look out for when specifying luxury handmade carpets and rugs
