A total of nine designers and carpet entrepreneurs were honoured in this year’s prestigious Carpet Design Awards, showcasing the exceptional creativity and innovation of the industry.
The 16th Carpet Design Awards were presented in front of a large digital audience. The winners had previously been selected by a top-class jury of experts from the design and carpet industry. Selection criteria included design and design concept, material, execution, structure and quality, as well as sustainability and branding.
For the first time, the awards were presented in association with the Scottish NGO, Turquoise Mountain, jointly celebrating this year’s outstanding young designers. A new category, “Best Emerging Designer” was also included in this year’s event.
