Please note the mattress sizes above will vary slightly from region to region. The difference in sizes between Australia, Europe, UK and America are slight but if in doubt please measure your bed dimensions to ensure you are purchasing the right size rug.

Typically a 2m x 3m standard rug will work well with a Queen size bed or the Europe King size bed. For larger beds such as the Australian King, a larger rug such as a 3m x 4m rug will work well.

Passage Collection Inspiration

Passage Collection Inspiration
The Passage Collection was inspired by a vivid dream Brooke Aitken had regarding the passage of time. In the morning following, she sketched a series of ephemeral graphic patterns evocative of her vision, which lived on her drawing board for years to come until she was presented with the opportunity to partner with TSAR Carpets to quite literally bring her dream to life.

Rill + Stone launches rug collection "Passage" with Tsar Carpets

Rill + Stone launches rug collection "Passage" with Tsar Carpets

Rill + Stone founder Brooke Aitken is pleased to announce that a partnership has been formed with Tsar Carpets to manufacture and market the Rill + Stone rug collection “Passage”.

We collaborated with Tsar Carpets as they manufacture rugs to last a lifetime. Tsar Carpets use the highest quality design principles, materials and quality assurance to create heirloom products. Rill + Stone’s ethos is of longevity of use for a sustainable future, one that Tsar Carpet’s products embody. Tsar uses the finest grade of New Zealand wool to create hand-tufted rugs that are both highly durable and soft under foot.

The Passage collection is about the marking of time, something so important after years of pandemic time blurring. Each rug celebrates a moment or a period in time of a year – Day, Night, Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. They are also a created with an architect’s design desire for making marks – a graphic metronome of marks on a page. Each rug has been created to achieve a sense of movement, with either physical slips and cut outs in the rugs, or by the pattern upon them.

Each of the 9 rugs in the first collection are both a reflection and culmination of Brooke’s design experience working around the world in Japan, London, Australia and the United States. Her architecture and interior work have always been very influenced by her travels through Japan at an early age. Brooke is very inspired by the reverence that is shown to the changing of the seasons in Japanese culture and how this can allow a person to pause and be present in that moment.
