Akira Isogawa is one of Australia's most celebrated fashion designers. Collaborating with Designer Rugs on three collections since 2005, the synergy between our designers expertise and Akira’s trademark breathtaking yet understated designs, has resulted in some of our most enduring and iconic rugs.

Akira's third collection HIRAMEKI, meaning ‘Inspiration’, references his 2012 catwalk collections. Akira’s love of exploring the juxtaposition between his traditional Japanese heritage and the celebration of Australia’s love of colour has translated into some exquisite pieces.

"Shibori means twist in English. It is a tie dye textile. This fabric had a floral and wave motif that was created by the Shibori technique. It also originates from Kyoto, Japan." - Akira

Size + Placement

When you buy a new rug, you’re making an investment in your home, your space, and your style, and you want it to look perfect in your room.

In addition to finding a rug that compliments the style and function of your space and your own personal taste, you’re also going to want to account for considerations of size, shape and placement.

We’ve created a simple guide to consider when making your rug purchase.

Care + Maintenance

We advise professional cleaning for all our rugs.

Vacuum regularly - we do not recommend using rotating or
brush head vacuum cleaners on any of our rugs, or vacuum
cleaners with a very strong suction.

Clean spills immediately. Never rub a spill, instead blot any
liquids with a dry absorbent white cloth or white paper towel. If
in doubt, please seek professional advice from our Preferred
Cleaner Network.

Do not steam clean or dry-clean your rug, and avoid harsh
chemicals. Our rugs are not machine-washable.

Direct sunlight will cause fading - avoid direct exposure to
sunlight.

The Designers

Akira Isogawa is one of Australia's most celebrated fashion designers. He has achieved international recognition for his exquisite contemporary designs, which are sought after in every major fashion capital throughout the world.

Designer Rugs first collaborated with Akira in 2005 to create a limited edition range. This beautiful collection captures Akira’s evocative patterns and colour combinations, and have emerged as true classics of Australian design.

Following on from the success of the first collection, Akira’s second rug collection ‘Kisetsu’ was launched during Fashion Week 2007. The 'Kisetsu' collection reflects Akira's delicate signature, epitomised by contemporary plays on traditional Japanese icons, patterns and colours.

Akira’s third dynamic rug collection 'Hirameki' launched in July 2012. In this Akira’s striking creations referenced his catwalk collections. Akira’s love of exploring the juxtaposition between his traditional Japanese heritage and the celebration of Australia’s love of colour, translated into some exquisite pieces.

The dynamic synergy between Designer Rugs’ expertise and Akira’s trademark breathtaking yet understated designs, has been actualised in all three collaborations.
