These rugs are so beautiful, it’s almost a crime to have them on the floor. This showcase by third-year textile design students is a response to a challenge to design rugs for specific environments. It could have been a cultural organisation, school, hospital or environmental institution but the rug needed to create a dialogue with the client while creating a specific atmosphere. Now in its fourth year, the Rug Up project is sponsored by Sydney’s leading rug manufacturer, Designer Rugs, who produced a selection of the winning designs.
