Margo Selby has joined forces with Christopher Farr to produce the Aquila rug, the design directly relates to her handwoven artworks.
Made in pure wool using a hand-tufting technique, a rug such as Aquila is at the intersection of Margo Selby’s practice and the embodiment of her tenet: Art-Into-Industry.
“I use thread to create abstract geometric artworks that explore repetition and transition, symmetry and asymmetry, the dynamic and the stable. Colour is a driving force behind my work; I enjoy the infinite effects of many subtle hues and tones that can be explored when blending from one colour to another.”
For over 30 years, Christopher Farr have set out to unite heritage textile craftsmanship with contemporary design vision. They continue to protect and preserve the world’s weaving traditions while pushing at the creative possibilities of design. Alongside Christopher’s own work, the company collaborates with a considered roster of international artists, architects, fashion designers and other visionaries to produce a selection of designs that remains unrivalled in its creative scope.
Aquila: Christopher Farr Editions (each rug is a numbered edition, limited to 250 pieces)
Size: 1.8m x 1.2m
Craftsmanship: Hand Tufted
Pile Composition: 100% Wool
Hand Tufted – Luxurious pile, tightly packed yarn – these rugs are handmade on upright frames using a very precise technique of inserting and looping yarn tufts through a canvas backing, with handheld tools. Features of this method are the density of pile and crispness of line, with optional varied pile heights hand-carved to create a 3-dimensional effect.
Materials - Wool – natural, durable, versatile, sustainable.
An underlay provides cushioning that increases the longevity of a rug; we advise customers to use a good quality anti-slip underlay, for this reason, and to prevent a rug from creasing and slipping, whether on a carpet or a hard floor. Underlay also protects the floor covering beneath from transference of colours or fibres from the back of the rug.

This is a CF Editions rug produced in partnership with Christopher Farr.
