Margo Selby, as an artist/weaver, brings her unique colour and design sensibility to everything we do, and nowhere is this more showcased than in our rug offering. We think of a rug as being at the intersection of the studio’s practice – rugs are both form and function – an objet d’art and a comforting furnishing that can transform a space. A Margo Selby rug has a distinct style and is created-to-last in the highest quality sustainable materials, by technically expert artisans.
Margo Selby is a British textile artist making visionary lampas hand-woven artworks. These works are both painterly, in regard to the optical mixing of pure colour – and sculptural, due to the physicality of woven thread as a mode of construction.
She established her eponymous textiles company in 2003 and now leads a small team of designers and makers in her Whitstable studio, creating her own range of fabric and products.

We wish you all good health and look forward to a time when we can throw open our Whitstable studio doors again.
