Foundation Rugs are now on the loom in the mill at Cairo. The very beginnings of some wonderful creations. Foundation have teamed up with Peter Fowler, Paul Insect, Anthony Burrill, Si Scott, Natasha Law, No Days Off, Present, Alexone, Tomato, Jack Teagle and Handwash Studio to produce one off unique rugs with their incredible designs.
Mohamed El Kattan leads the production team based at the family mill in Cairo Egypt, one of the oldest weaving factories in the country.
Established at the turn of the century, the mill has been in the same family for 4 generations and is located in a former palace of King Farouk, dating from the 1850′s – which once housed a hareem.
Due to launch in September 2012 (venue tbc) – we will be giving you regular updates on Foundation’s designs over the next couple of weeks with each rugs journey from mill to completion.
