If you are an interior designer/architect and have an online trade account with The Rug Company, please log in to purchase items online. Otherwise, please register online for a web Trade account.

To arrange a Home Approval, please contact us or visit your nearest showroom. Our Home Approval service is not available on items from The Archive Sale.

We do not currently offer a sample rental feature on our website. Please contact our Customer Service team or your nearest showroom directly to request a sample. While we deliver our samples free of charge, you are responsible for any return shipping charges that may incur. Due to the limited number of samples we carry for each design, it is best to consider alternative ways to observe colours such as utilising our keyring or yarn card functionality online. Keyrings/yarn-cards are more light-weight, affordable and just as efficient as our samples for initial colour matching. Our keyrings/yarn cards are orderable online under our listed products. Please contact us if you have further questions.

All of our rugs are 100% handmade in various qualities such as hand knotted, hand loomed, handwoven aubusson, and hand tufted. Most of our rugs are made out of natural fibres such as wool and silk, which are viewable under our product description page. Due to the handmade nature of our products, we are able to customise our area rugs to better fulfil your space; including but not limited to runners, wall-to-wall, and uniquely shaped rugs.
