A classic design with a rich history, this black wool area rug with gold border design is a simple, elegant centrepiece to suit any home. The piece is inspired by the legendary creations of the Celtic tribes of Ireland and features their famous eternal knot in gold running along its border. The Black wool area rug is inspired by the iconic designs in the Book Of Kells and Book Of Durrow, which are both now on display in Trinity College Dublin.
The eternal knot design is thought to represent the never-ending cycle of life and nature. The Celtic people were strong believers in eternal life and ‘being one’ or connecting with nature. Our aim is to bring this design back to homes worldwide, to show the true beauty of Celtic simplistic design. We also believe in choice, and so we are offering these rugs in many different variants. This rug can be obtained in a range colours, including Wine, Green, Rustic, Plum and Blue. For a complete list of our ‘Eternity’ rugs, please visit or Shop.
