The Michael Friedes Rug Collection
The Michael Friedes Rug Collection features an array of vibrant patterns, unexpected color combinations, and unique designs that are all accentuated with fine craftmanship and a soft hand. Friedes’ collection for The Rug Finder is inspired by the fascinating juxtaposition between nature and art. Michael was vigilant in finding the right manufacturing partner to bring his designs to life. They had to understand his need for the best quality of materials, construction, and ethical practices.
The rugs in the collection are made in Nepal, handmade by skilled artisans in the city of Kathmandu.
