From Christiane Millinger's studies in restoration, conservation, and history of carpets and textiles, she is dedicated to bringing us back to the roots of weaving tradition and beauty.
At just fourteen, Christiane attended textile engineering school but found little interest in the mass production side of the textile industry. Under the generous tutelage of Robert Mann, she formed a passion for rug and textile conservation.
Today, she is proud to support artisan weavers of the world to preserve their ancient cultural heritage while earning a fair wage. These designers and visionaries produce heirloom-quality rugs with unmistakable luster, complexity, and warmth, made from natural dyes and spun wool woven by hand.
Her rugs can be found in the magazine pages of Interior Design, the welcoming rooms designed by leading interior design and architecture firms, and consciously aware and sophisticated restaurants like Eleven Madison Park in New York City.
