Hughes Rugs specialise in providing premier quality oriental and tribal rugs, as well as carpets, to the UK market.
Based in Royal Wootton Bassett, Wiltshire, we are very much a traditional family business. Stephen Hughes and wife Marie have run the company for over 25 years, following in the footsteps of Stephen’s father and grandfather. As the third generation to be involved with oriental carpets, today they draw on more than 75 years of accumulated knowledge and experience.
Hughes Rugs import directly from the foremost carpet-producing countries, including Iran, Turkey, Afghanistan, India, Pakistan and China. Our ethically-sourced items are hand-made by skilled weavers living in nomadic, tribal or village communities. We’re proud to run a business that supports local economies in these countries, and which promotes traditional skills that have often been in families for generations.
Over the years, Hughes Rugs has built a reputation for supplying superior quality rugs and carpets at incredible prices. As such, a substantial part of our business comes from returning customers or word-of-mouth recommendations.
When you buy a Hughes rug, you own something with its own unique character. It’s not just that your home looks more attractive: it’s also connected with the life of a craftsman and with a lifestyle steeped in tradition.
