Jan Kath

May 18, 2017 by CADRYS

Jan Kath is one of the most exciting designers to watch within the rug industry. With his modern designs, Jan Kath (born 1972) is creating a completely new perspective on carpets. Guided by a bold approach in his work, Kath, originally from Bochum, combines classical elements of oriental carpets with contemporary, minimalist design.

Jan Kath is one of the most important carpet designers on the international stage. His carpets can be found everywhere – in the homes of Arabian royalty, in the villa of rock star Anthony Kiedis in Hawaii, in private suites at the “four seasons” in Cairo, on the luxury yachts of multi­national oil conglomerates, and in the showrooms of important Parisian fashion labels.

A carpet grows very slowly. Row by row, centimetre by centimetre, the pattern appears like a page emerging from an inkjet printer. When a hand-made rug by Jan Kath is created, it takes between 100 and 450 knots to complete every 6.45 square centimetres, or one square inch.

Jan Kath considers himself a couturier for floors. For large projects such as luxury hotels and exclusive shops or vip lounges in airports he also produces high-quality hand- tufted carpets made in factories.
