“The quality of the rug is fantastic and it looks absolutely luxurious, but the best thing is that it ties in nicely with my collection. It’s really in style with my current designs, even though this is an interior design product.”

Dovecot was approached by the Glasgow School of Art fashion graduate Jamie Bruski Tetsill to produce a gun-tufted rug at the Studio in 2008. Tetsill had received funding that would allow him to take part in 100% Design Tokyo and as part of his textile design showcase he had a vision to include a rug produced in collaboration with Dovecot.

Tetsill’s textural clothing designs were characterised by geometric motifs and patterns, formed by a sophisticated tufting process which Dovecot recognised could be interpreted with dramatic effect in an interior rug design. After discussion with Master Weaver Douglas Grierson and Weaver Jonathan Cleaver, Tetsill developed a design for Rug 01; a dynamic interior textile, with distinctive bolts of geometric coloured shapes spiralling out from a central point much like a Catherine Wheel. The rug’s unconventional three part composition alludes to a kinetic or explosive element and can be displayed with the sections together or apart.
