Gan Rugs

Gandia Blasco is a Valencian design company that has been manufacturing textiles for over 60 years. They are most known for their mainly white, outdoor furniture but over the past few years they have gone back to their textile roots and have produced some intriguing rugs under the brand name Gan. The rugs come in hand tufted and hand knotted varieties, with designs influenced by cultures including Persian, Arabic and Mediterranean. A highlight from this year is the the Mangas collection (fourth from top) by Patricia Urquiola.
