A stalwart to the industry, Michael is; promoter, reporter, connector, friend, and general pollinator for all things rugs!

Although Michael is well versed in a variety of carpet styles/origins, he has a particular affinity for Tibetan rugs and the country, culture, and people of Nepal.
“I’ve become more of a collector, I think everyone becomes a bit of a collector as they get older.”
#tableauxdepompoms was a fun trend started by The Ruggist during initial lock downs to keep the industry active, engaged, and connected.
