Brintons and Timorous Beasties have won Designer Collaboration of the Year at the 2018 Wool Carpet & Rug Awards…
The Craigend collection was launched in May at this year’s Clerkenwell Design Week and consists of nine designs that are inspired by textures and surfaces found naturally underfoot, all reimagined in the Brintons’ signature 80/20 blend of 80 per cent wool and 20 per cent nylon.
In designing Craigend, Timorous Beasties called upon their fascination with the often-brutal beauty of the natural world, as well as taking aesthetic inspiration from different crafting materials including paint, ink and fabric.
Sponsored by The Campaign for Wool, in association with British Wool, the Wool Carpet & Rug Awards celebrate excellence in wool carpet and rug manufacture. Now in its third year, the event helps to promote the many benefits of wool flooring to a wide and varied audience.
The awards attracted over one hundred entries across its twelve categories, with the ceremony held at the Harrogate Flooring Show. Brintons was also a finalist in the Commercial Woven Carpet of the Year category, for its renovation of the Victoria Palace Theatre in London.
