WO­VEN WON­DERS

ELLE Decoration (UK) - - Style Decorating -

Alan Oliver, a new name on the rug scene, is some­one to keep on your radar. His story is an in­spir­ing one: af­ter a ca­reer in fi­nance, fol­lowed by five years in his own self-launched up­hol­stery prac­tice, his pas­sion for craft led him to fo­cus on weav­ing rugs, such as the pop­u­lar ‘Geo­met­ric Pat­terned Rug’ ( left). ‘Most of my work is about move­ment through colour and pat­tern,’ says Oliver. His process is hands-on – he dyes the wool him­self for a per­fect gra­da­tion of colour. £385 (alano­liver.co.uk).
