RENAISSANCE


As the premiere source for fine hand woven art Renaissance Carpet & Tapestries specializes in recreating the most coveted woven creations that the world’s centuries and cultures have had to offer. Our chief designer, Philippe Hecquet and his team of artisans are of the most internationally recognised artists in their oeuvre and have designed carpets for some of the most prestigious interiors across the globe.


In our passionate commitment to the woven arts; historical tradition, craftsmanship and design are translated into fine quality and resounding beauty. Renaissance openly welcomes the most challenging of custom projects in order to realize the utmost potential of our interiors.


Renaissance Carpet & Tapestries inc was established in 1989 when its group of founders sought to revive the magnificent art of Savonnerie & Aubusson in authentic articulation. Their vision was realized in French designer & master colorist, Philippe Hecquet. Mr. Hecquet brought Renaissance not only the name of a well-respected 20th century French designer, but also centuries of knowledge as owner of a French Aubusson manufacture, Manufacture Hamot, later known as Manufacture Hecquet, established in 1762.


Carpets produced by Renaissance can be found in the finest homes, palaces, museums & chateaux from Washington DC to Riyadh. Mr. Hecquet’s extraordinary talent for the refined elegance and delicate style of the “Age of Allurement” places Renaissance at the forefront of international home furnishing trends. With Mr. Hecquet’s talent and Renaissance’s demand for quality, the carpet and Tapestry collections produced by Renaissance remain unparalleled in the global market place.


Renaissance stands behind its European carpet productions in China every step of the way and with focus, patience, perseverance & an exceptional team, has succeeded in recreating its own “Renaissance” in fine Handwoven Art. In keeping with the same principles that govern European carpet production, Renaissance has also expanded to encompass divisions in Pakistan and India. By broadening the collection range, Renaissance has evolved from a formal Erench style company, into a representative of the world’s finest woven traditions.


Today Renaissance’s line of collections include: Plush Aubusson, Heavyweight Needlepoint, Bessarabian, Sakura, Indo Soumack, Double Soumack, Vegetable-Dyed Orientals & Tabriz in addition to the traditional Savonnerie, Aubusson & Tapestry collections. Presently Renaissance offers several hundred designs in each of the traditional lines and is adding new designs to the Tabriz collection monthly. In addition, Renaissance has also recently acquired several hundred Antique Machettes, which have influenced many new innovative designs to augment both the programmed & custom Savonnerie selection, inspiring designs that are fit for royalty.
