On Sunday, June 16, 2023, we had the pleasure of visiting the “Enthüllt. Berlin und seine Denkmäler” exhibition at the Zitadelle Spandau in Berlin. It was our photographer, Michael Tewes, who recommended this remarkable exhibition to us, and we were truly amazed by what we discovered there. The Zitadelle Spandau houses a permanent collection of sculptures that were once scattered throughout different locations in Berlin. It was the perfect setting to showcase our new rug sculpture, the “Multishape Splash Galileo Collection.”

Ohh boy, that took me 3 years of consideration now, but now I am more than happy to introduce you to our new RUG STAR picture research and cycles “Epic Berlin”. Our new and audacious campaign embarks on a captivating journey to showcase our hand-knotted rugs and rug sculptures as awe-inspiring contemporary rug art, thoughtfully curated within 12 half-public spaces in the city of Berlin. Building upon our campaign “Intimacy Berlin”, which started in 2015 and ended during Corona in 2020, that intimately displayed our rugs in private homes and artist spaces, “Epic Berlin” now ventures boldly into the realm of half-public spaces, unveiling a new kind of storytelling dimension that ignites imagination and provokes profound thought.

With an ambitious scope, “Epic Berlin” is a meticulously planned visual research project that will unfold over 24 months, from July 2023 to July 2024, encompassing 12 distinct locations that pulsate with the vibrant urban and cultural aspects of the city we are living in. These exceptional spaces, carefully chosen and curated, will serve us as the striking backdrops for our extraordinary collection and stand for their extreme differences, trying to confront and aiming for confirmation, intimately connecting it with the city’s vibrant tapestry, with social and political fragments and spaces that symbolize a progression in context to passing time.

Stepping into the world of public and half-public spaces, our campaign ventures into uncharted territory, engaging the social, political, and historical dimensions that reverberate within these locales. In the compelling saga of “Epic Berlin,” each space serves as a canvas for a thought-provoking confrontation, inviting viewers to immerse themselves in the intricate interplay between contemporary rug art and the surroundings that bear the marks of time and human experience.

In the inaugural chapter, “Epic Berlin” 01, we delved into the enigmatic realm of monuments with profound historical significance, once celebrated in public but later relegated to the annals of time. A testament to the power of art and it’s evolving meaning, these spaces provided a poignant backdrop for our rug sculptures of the “Multishape Splash Galileo” Collection, sparking dialogue and contemplation about the passage of time, collective memory, and cultural heritage.


The Black Label collection is now embracing color! Building upon the success of exhibiting our timeless classical patterns in a single black color, we have taken a further step by introducing bold modern colors. The classical patterns now appear as waterprints in a high/low texture, where we have clipped down the wool parts, leaving the silk and silk/wool sections in a higher pile.

In this new update, we go beyond black and introduce vibrant modern colors. We are shifting the entire black base to a clear alternative color and adding contrasting colors as fringes and checkerboard endings, creating a captivating fusion between the fringe color and the rug itself.

This evolution of the BlackLabel collection invites you to explore the dynamic interplay of colors and textures. It showcases our commitment to pushing boundaries and creating visually stunning and artistically expressive rugs. Join us on this colorful journey and experience the transformation of classical patterns into contemporary masterpieces.

Our latest PalmSprings Collection encapsulates the very essence of a radiant, sun-drenched day in a beautifully designed architectural home amidst the vibrant era of the 1960s in PalmSprings. Drawing inspiration from our beloved Blocks collection, we have infused PalmSprings with a softer, more delicate touch, creating an ambiance that is both nostalgic and captivating.

The carefully curated color palette of PalmSprings embraces pastel tones, resulting in a gentle and ethereal ambiance that evokes a powdery softness. Adding to the allure, we have introduced our innovative SilkLining surface, which has already enchanted admirers in our timeless UrbanLavish collection.

Each rug in this collection is meticulously hand-knotted using the Persian knot technique in Jaipur, known for its impeccable craftsmanship. With a knot count of 9/9, these rugs exhibit exceptional intricacy and detail.

To enhance the allure of PalmSprings, we have incorporated our innovative SilkLining surface, which showcases a harmonious blend of silk linen and wool. In this unique process, the wool parts are carefully rubbed by hand, allowing a linear silk structure to gracefully follow the horizontal lines of the weaving process. This meticulous technique results in a stunning visual effect that exudes sophistication and refinement.

The combination of silk and linen comprises approximately 80% of the rug, ensuring a luxurious feel and enhancing its overall luster. This blend of natural fibers adds a subtle sheen and softness to the rugs, elevating their aesthetic appeal and providing a touch of opulence to any interior space.

In designing this collection, I drew inspiration from the works of Christopher Isherwood’s novel “A Single Man.” I aimed to capture the essence of the home and the ambiance portrayed within its pages, translating it into the surface of each of these beautiful designs. Be tender and thank you Christopher for this marvelous novel.

At RUG STAR, we are thrilled to introduce the extraordinary MZ Collection, a collaborative project with Mary Zio, a talented artist from North Carolina, USA.

Through close collaboration with Mary, we had the honor of translating her stunning art designs into exquisite hand-knotted Persian rugs, resulting in a collection that encompasses nearly 20 magnificent pieces. Crafted with the utmost precision and using the finest silk and wool, these rugs arrived in Berlin in autumn 2021 and are currently showcased in an exclusive exhibition at our warehouse.

To ensure the highest quality, the MZ Collection features a 9/9 Persian knot quality meticulously produced in Jaipur, India. This knot quality ensures durability and longevity, making these rugs not only works of art but also functional pieces for your home or space.

Furthermore, we employed a special surface execution technique known as sandblasting to give the rug’s surface a luxurious velvet appearance. This meticulous process adds a soft and velvety texture to the rug, enhancing its overall visual and tactile appeal.

To further showcase the beauty and artistry of the MZ Collection, we embarked on a brilliant interior shoot production, capturing the essence of these pieces within a stylish Berlin loft. The resulting visual display is a stunning testament to the true beauty and artistic prowess of the collection.

Looking ahead, we are thrilled to announce that plans are underway to bring the MZ Collection on a roadshow across the United States.

The BlackLabel Collection by RUG STAR presents a remarkable reinterpretation of our top six best-selling designs from the Contemporary Classic Collection, taking them to new heights of artistry and elegance. This range showcases the finest 11/11 Persian knot count, with 65% silk meticulously refined, exemplifying the luxurious nature of these rugs.

In reimagining the traditional color composition process, we distilled our approach into a single, provocative question: how can we create and produce intricate traditional patterns using just one bold color – BLACK?

Our ingenious solution involved dividing the pattern structure into three distinct groups and conveying the full complexity through a carefully curated blend of materials. The collection features 100% wool, a 50% wool – 50% silk mix, and 100% pure silk, creating a harmonious balance of textures. After knotting, we meticulously trimmed the wool sections with scissors to create a high/low texture, masterfully incorporating light and shadow into our modern interpretation. The material’s sheen and the shadow lines of the trimmed pattern elements interact with the room’s light and the viewer’s gaze, offering a captivating visual experience.

This exceptional display of craftsmanship sees the weaver using only three seemingly identical material balls to create stunning renditions of high-end classical rug patterns, highlighting the skill and dedication behind each piece. We are incredibly proud of the achievements made with the BlackLabel Collection, which stands as a timeless classic from RUG STAR, blending tradition with contemporary aesthetics in a seamless fusion of art and design.

In the village of the weavers

In April 2019, I embarked on a memorable journey to Jaipur, Rajasthan, accompanied by my dear friend and Berlin-based photographer, Caroline Saage. The purpose of our trip was to create an innovative photo campaign that would capture the essence of our best-selling collection, produced in collaboration with the talented weavers of the village.

We ventured to the village of Dheeroda, a two-hour drive from Jaipur, where approximately 400 villagers exclusively work on crafting our rugs. The rugs we used for the shoot were all meticulously handcrafted in this very village, making it an even more meaningful experience to showcase them in their place of origin.

The campaign, which we fondly referred to as KingsRobe, derived its name from the way we elegantly draped the rugs around our shoulders, resembling the regal attire of kings. These rugs, sourced from our best-selling designs, were a testament to the exceptional skills and craftsmanship of the weavers in this particular village.

As we arrived in Dheeroda, the village exuded an enchanting atmosphere, with its serene surroundings serving as the perfect backdrop for our photoshoot. Stripping off our shirts, we enveloped ourselves in the rugs, embodying the regality and beauty they represented. The weavers, who had poured their heart and soul into creating these masterpieces, were delighted to see their creations showcased in such a unique way.

Amidst the challenging weather conditions, with temperatures soaring to a staggering 47 degrees Celsius, we persevered in capturing the essence of these rugs. It was a test of endurance, both for us as models and for the weavers who had created these remarkable pieces. We overcame the obstacles, ensuring that our photoshoot portrayed the true beauty and artistry of the rugs.

The joy and excitement we brought to the village that day were immeasurable. The weavers clapped their hands in appreciation, filled with gratitude for the opportunity to showcase their exceptional craftsmanship to the world. The campaign not only showcased the rugs but also shed light on the incredible talent and dedication of the weavers, further establishing the village as a hub for exquisite rug production.

As we left Dheeroda, we carried with us not only the memories of the photo shoot but also the deep connection we had forged with the weavers and the village. It was an experience that emphasized the significance of the village in our production process and celebrated the collaboration between their skillful hands and our creative vision.
