All our rugs are ethically produced hand woven in Kathmandu Valley, Nepal by highly skilled Nepalese and Tibetan weavers, using traditional Tibetan wools and dyeing practices. The designs are by the modernist artist PIP BENVENISTE (1921-2010). Land Rugs is a registered importer with GoodWeave.
Pip Benveniste - British Modernist Artist (1921-2010)
Creating rug designs came at the culmination of Benveniste’s long and varied artistic career. She was the daughter of Bohemian artists and was born into the creative community of Newlyn, Cornwall in 1921. Perceptive with a strong enquiring mind, the natural world was her constant companion throughout her extensive output of work in oils, acrylic, watercolour, etching and film.
