    Margo Selby for Alternative Flooring

    Margo Selby is a woven textile design company that produces exceptional quality fabrics, rugs and accessories, which blend effortlessly with both contemporary and classic interiors.

    The Margo Selby for Alternative Flooring collection is inspired by a collection of deflected double weave hand-woven cloths that have been developed on a hand loom. Making on a hand loom was an integral part of the design process for the first carpets, the designs were originally produced as soft silk and wool fabrics and have been blown up and re-coloured to make them suitable for flooring.

    Like many of the Margo Selby designs the patterns are inspired by the process of weaving and the uniformed geometric shapes reflect the structured nature of the craft.

    Fair Isle, Margo Selby for Alternative Flooring

    Fair Isle takes inspiration from the silk jacquard collection.

    Shuttle, Margo Selby for Alternative Flooring

    Shuttle is derived from the handwoven deflected double cloth weaves.
