For over 40 years Jeff Banks has been a worldwide leader in British design and fashion. Since launching his own fashion label in 1969 he had many accolades which include co-launching high street fashion chain Warehouse, winning British Designer of the Year and presenting The Clothes Show on BBC1.
The first Jeff Banks designer rugs branded ‘Ports of Call’ was first introduced in back in 2001. At this time the UK rug market was quite limited in terms of innovative designs, however the ‘Ports of Call’ range was quick to change that. The designs took their inspiration from the places he had visited when travelling around the world (hence the name ‘Ports of Call’) as well as his fashion collections which used bold shapes and daring colours to magnificent effect. Since launching in 2001 the ‘Ports of Call’ range has gone from strength to strength, each year the range is refreshed with brand new designs.
The current range of Jeff Banks Rugs includes seven wool shaggy designs from £129; eleven hand tufted wool designs from £129; six acrylic designs from £84; and twelve hand tufted fine acrylic designs from £144. The latest four additions are all made with a 100% fine acrylic pile to run along side the current twelve designs in this collection. Available in two sizes these new designs (pictured below) are named ‘Kaleidoscope’ due to their use of multiple bright vibrant colours and abstract patterns. Certainly not for the conservative, they are ideal for those that want to make a very bold fashionable statement on their floor. We have already stocked up heavily on each design as we suspect they will be very popular with our customers.
