Inigo Elizalde was born in the Philippines in the midst of a powerful tropical typhoon. Today, he and his eponymous rug and textile design studio are based in New York City. The studio is a custom design house that specializes in Nepalese hand-knotted rugs, as well as hand-tufted rugs, flatweaves, and dhurries. Always exploring new materials and techniques, Inigo Elizalde Rugs is passionate about experimentation and believes in making rugs that are beautiful, original, and distinctive; rugs that will stand the test of time and be loved forever.
Inigo Elizalde Rugs is a proud member of the GoodWeave organization. GoodWeave works through its certification program to end illegal child labor in the carpet industry and to offer educational opportunities to children in South Asia. GoodWeave was founded on a simple premise: If enough people demand certified child-labor-free rugs, manufacturers will employ only skilled, adult artisans, and children will no longer be exploited in the carpet industry.
