Carpet Design Awards (CDA)

Presented by Innovations@DOMOTEX

The Competition for Outstanding Design in Handmade Carpets


New hook-up: Carpet Design Awards and Innovations@DOMOTEX

Outstanding designs will receive a special distinction at the upcoming DOMOTEX in January 2015: the Carpet Design Awards, acknowledging high-quality, well-designed hand-made carpets. This competition is considered to be the world's leading award for hand-made carpets and rugs. In the tenth year of its existence, the competition is being staged for the first time under the umbrella of Innovations@DOMOTEX . This new union, which will substantially enhance the status of the competition, also serves to underscore the special DOMOTEX focus on innovations and trends.

The jury has deliberated and reached a decision. 11 manufacturers have now received an award for their excellent design work. A total of 11 products were honoured on Sunday, 12 January, in a ceremony marking the start of DOMOTEX HANNOVER. An additional award - for the carpet most favoured by the public - will be presented at the end of the show.

The presentation of the internationally acclaimed Carpet Design Awards took place for the ninth time at the world fair for carpets and floor coverings in Hannover. The Carpet Design Awards are dedicated to handmade carpets of remarkable quality and design. A panel of experts judged outstanding products in a range of categories, including best studio artist designs and modern carpets, as well as everything ranging from traditional to innovative. This year's Carpet Design Awards also focussed in particular on young talent.
