Designer Inigo Elizalde launched Inigo Elizalde Rugs, a textile design studio that specializes in hand tufted, Nepalese hand knotted rugs, dhurries and flat weaves, taking inspiration directly from his environment, whether it’s the Phillippines or even a computer glitch he encountered at the studio. Despite the wide range of inspiration, the rugs all feature mesmerizing patterns and bright, graphic colors. Despite the studio being located in NYC, all the rugs are completely handmade in Nepal and the Philippines, featuring Chinese and Indian silks, Tibetan unprocessed wools, and bamboo fibers.
In addition to being passionate about distinct, beautiful rugs, Inigo Elizalde is also part of GoodWeave. GoodWeave works through its certification program to end illegal child labor in the carpet industry and to offer educational opportunities to children in South Asia.
