Jan Kath

The rugs designed by Jan Kath display a masterly combination of ancient traditions and contemporary trends. He re-presents the good old Oriental rug with a vintage look, arranges traditional patterns in contemporary styles and incorporates signs of wear and tear in his designs. In addition to creating innovative patterns, Kath attaches great importance to using high-quality silk or wool from the Tibetan highlands, as well as to preserving traditional knotting techniques. “I love these different forms of expression and have set myself the task of preserving them,” he comments. It goes without saying that he ensures eco-friendly and socially responsible manufacturing conditions for their production. ART AUREA AWARD winner 2015
