THANK YOU FOR YOUR REQUEST
We will be in touch soon.
Amy Kent was born in Gloucestershire to a family of artists involved in interiors, heritage and property, so it was almost unavoidable to follow her own creative path. the designer studied History of Art, loves to travel and cook and dreamt of having her own business.
After travelling to India in 2005, Amy Kent met a husband and wife who ran a business of rug-making and she was enraptured by this, and soon set afoot to work on developing her own company alongside them.
After 15 years, Amy Kent had become part of the extended family who bring her rugs to life with a technique and craftsmanship that continues to amaze. She also works with rug makers in Kathmandu, Nepal, another family-run business.
The designer draws her inspiration from every day: nature, travel, architecture, friends, among other things. Amy Kent adds depth to her collection by collaborating with other creatives: artists, designers, photographers and florists.
Amy Kent’s strong work ethic and mindfulness form the foundations of the company’s philosophy. A very personal approach runs throughout the creative process, from the initial client site visit to the making of the rug to the final installation by her rug specialists in the United Kingdom, also the husband and wife team who have been with her since the beginning.
As a creator of new products, Amy Kent is acutely aware of her responsibility to the environment, endeavouring to make her rugs in an ethical, sustainable and eco-friendly way as possible.
The designer works with Care & Fair, a charity that ensures no child labour or unethical practices are employed during the making of the rugs, as well as supporting schools and local communities through her own fund-raising projects in the United Kingdom.
Nothing, other than another order via a delighted customer, makes Amy Kent happier than family, living for the moment and fusing sustainability and thoughtfulness into her work.
