About us

Rug Maker designs and manufactures hand woven silk and wool rugs for corporate businesses, designers and of course the public. Our rugs and carpets are now exported all round the world.

Originally known as ‘The Oriental Rug Gallery’ the company was established in 1989 in St. Albans, Hertfordshire by business partners Julian Blair and Richard Mathias. As styles and customer requirements changed so did the company and ‘Rug Maker’ was created to offer a bespoke service not readily available. Our reputation for excellent quality and high standards of design, manufacture and personal service is one of the reasons for the longevity and continued success in the industry.

Rug Maker has officially been granted a licence by Royal Mail to manufacture this exclusive Stamp Rug Collection, which fully captures the iconic design of Machin’s Royal Mail Stamps. The British Library has chosen Rug Maker to work with along with other institutions, top designers and companies for prestigious projects or collections.
