Her knotted wool and silk rugs are of heirloom quality ensuring that they will be enjoyed by many generations to come.
Sonya designs and creates the rugs in her London studio with her small team, working on a number of new designs each year, in addition to limited edition series, and bespoke commissions for area rugs. She is delighted to have been nominated for the Homes & Gardens Awards 2012.
