Momeni's debuting Margaux collection won best hand-tufted rug in the $0 - $16 per square foot price category, the only category in the competition covering hand hooked and hand tufted rugs. "From our many January introductions, we chose to submit Margaux because this particular line is unlike anything in the market in terms of design and texture," Rachael Fasciani, Momeni's director of marketing and public releations told RugNews.com. "We always want to present new designs that make Momeni a differentiator."
Designed by Momeni's lead designer, Katy Repetto, the Margaux collection is hand tufted of 100 percent polyester with brilliant colors and a super soft hand.
