The edition was created by the artist in partnership with Christopher Farr, a London based company that has been at the forefront of contemporary rug design since 1990 working with the world’s leading artists and institutions.
Matthew Bourne from Christopher Farr, who managed the production of the rug comments; “We are delighted and proud to have been involved in this project and were at pains to involve the artist as much as possible. I travelled to India in January to see the first samples and then arranged for them to be sent down to Howard in Mumbai along with hundreds of colours for the final colour selections to be made…..”
