Ten top students from Harrington College of Design made the finals in a rug design competition sponsored by Oscar Isberian Rugs last fall. Following the selection, the students' designs were then created by weavers in Nepal, using Himalayan wool. This Friday, those rugs take centerstage on the auction block. Proceeds from the auction's ten designs will be distributed among the seven designers (note three designs by one student, Meher Pithawalla). See the remaining (amazing) designs below:
The auction is this Friday, Nov. 1, from 6-9 pm at Harrington College of Design, 200 W. Madison, First Floor Gallery.
