Avoiding trends and fashions our rugs are designed to become modern classics for both contemporary and traditional schemes

About us

Riviere Custom Handmade Rugs was founded in 2005 by Camilla & Leo Riviere. With backgrounds in art and design, they have a thorough understanding and appreciation of classical & modern architecture, paintings and interiors. Having also travelled extensively in Europe & Asia, their inspiration draws heavily on all these experiences.

The collection is entirely handcrafted in Riviere’s own workshop in the Kathmandu valley of Nepal. Using only the finest grade, hand carded and hand spun Tibetan wool and pure Chinese silk, the rugs are hand woven with a minimum of 100 knots per square inch. In addition to wool and silk we offer a wide range of other yarns and knot counts including mohair, nettle, linen and bamboo.

Our rugs are unique – combining craftsmanship and creativity to produce pieces that are original, beautiful and will last for generations. In an increasingly mass produced world, we are proud to be part of a highly skilled artisan tradition.
