Rachel Bassill The Rug Studio - Stamford, London, Holt, Cotswolds


Rachel Bassill

Rugs are truly a passion for Rachel. An extension of a childhood hobby, through specialist training at art school and traveling the weaving areas of the middle east and south America. Over 30 years later  ‘Rachel rugs’ emerged as she is fondly known by many.

Production of bespoke items working closely with her teams in India and restoration of old and worn rugs is Rachels’s happy place. A passion she has passed on to her team. Striving to ensure customer understanding and confidence in the work carried out with the studio Rachel shares as much or as little as you the client want.

One belief is that when one owns an antique rug you are the caretaker of the piece. Simply maintaining and looking after the piece to the best of one’s abilities for generations to come. Rachel believes with the skill and art form deteriorating the art of a true hand-knotted rug must be appreciated and understood.
