Christopher Farr Collaboration
Vexillum Hand Knotted Rug
Aquila + Signum Hand Tufted Rugs
Margo Selby joined forces with Christopher Farr to produce the Vexillum rug, the design directly related to her handwoven artworks. A collectible piece, the rug is made in pure wool using a traditional hand knotting technique. Two variations were also produced, smaller in size and hand-tufted. This project is at the intersection of Margo Selby’s practice and the embodiment of her tenet: Art-Into-Industry.
Margo’s Vexillum series of artworks, began as a commissioned installation for the Crafts Council’s international fair for contemporary craft and design at London’s Somerset House, and won the COLLECT Open Award 2020. The Christopher Farr collaboration came directly from this exhibition.
