Established in 2000 and with only six hand-made plain rug samples in their hands, Sigal took another leap of faith and convinced her husband/partner to trust her creative brilliance to help grow the company from a humble beginning to one of the most desirable rug collections in the industry. Self-taught and high disciplinarian artist/designer/home stylist, Sigal created her first two rug designs inspired by her pencil drawings debuted in 2002. The unique designs brought great reviews from the press along with inquiries from many prominent designers and architects. From then on CUSTOM rugs became the company’s DNA.
While presenting the company’s growing collection at local rug shows and traveling all over the country to entice potential clients, the day has finally arrived and the founders’ vision came to life: Rug Art International opened a showroom at the D&D in NYC after being on a waiting list for 10 long years!
