Our Story

Art, design, material and making define the house of Christopher Farr Cloth, which was born from a collaborative spirit to encompasses fabrics, wallcoverings and accessories, building upon Farr’s unrivalled expertise in custom handmade rugs and tapestries.

Cloth nurtures close relationships with like-minded makers who share a commitment to mastering their skills, whilst remaining open to experimentation. Indeed it is a commitment to the finest materials and most skilled craftsmen that has underpinned the creative direction of the house since its inception. A continued passion for time-honoured screen printing processes and artisan weaving, an intellectual yet playful approach to design along with a preference for natural European linen creates a complex harmony that is far greater than the sum of its parts.

Christopher Farr Cloth’s palette of instantly recognisable hues acts as a unifier that draws together the creative expressions of a varied array of artists and designers, from historical to contemporary. The stories that surround our unique designs enrich the products but do not define them. Archival collections, originally created for a different era are revived in fresh colours and can be paired with contemporary patterns and textures as one desires.

Rugs

Established in 1988 Christopher Farr originally specialised in Antique rugs and textiles which were shown alongside some early contemporary designs by Christopher Farr. A collaboration with Royal College of Art textile and fashion students in 1991, to design a group of rugs for an exhibition entitled ‘Brave New Rugs’ became a breakthrough event in the world of design. The resulting attention the show received led to a further collaboration in 1993 with Romeo Gigli, the acclaimed Italian fashion designer. The youthful vigour of the early projects was seen as anathema to the staid environs of antique rugs. “Up to that point, new rugs were a dirty word. People laughed at us”, Farr says now. “Nobody else was doing it at the time.” Christopher realised that if there was to be a future for rugs, it had to be contemporary. Farr states, “It was the only option”. Further collaboration with the likes of John Pawson, Andrée Putman, Gary Hume, Verner Panton as well as Reproducing archive designs by such figures as Marian Pepler, Gunta Stolzl and Anni Albers, has established Christopher Farr at the forefront of the industry.
