Product Description

Details

An exclusive Stamp Rug collection produced under licence from the Royal Mail.

The Penny Black was the world's first adhesive postage stamp used in a public postal system. It was issued in Britain on 1 May 1840. However it was in use for only a little over a year. It was found that a red cancellation was hard to see on a black background and the red ink was easy to remove, making it possible to re-use stamps after they had been cancelled. In 1841, the Treasury switched to the Penny Red and issued cancellation devices with black ink, much more effective as a cancellation and harder to remove. 

Used as a conventional rug or hung on a wall for an alternative look, the Stamp Rug is the ultimate majestic design statement.

Each exclusive Stamp Rug is hand knotted by highly skilled weavers in the Kathmandu valley, Nepal. The rugs are woven onto cotton warps and wefts and are made from 100% New Zealand wool. The culmination of the weavers' experience combined with the highest quality materials creates the perfect hand made rug.

Larger and bespoke sizes are also available - please contact us for more details.
