Dilana Workshop has been designing, producing and placing unique artist rugs into diverse interiors throughout the world for thirty years.

We work with established New Zealand and international artists to produce luxurious hand-tufted 100% wool pile rugs, handmade by our craftspeople at the Dilana Workshop in Christchurch. 

Dilana’s craftspeople are skilled in balancing creativity with technical practicality, guiding visual artists through the process of creating original, high quality rugs. Our numbered, limited edition works become treasured belongings, sought after as much for their aesthetic value as their tactile luxury. The crafted subtle details of each piece demonstrate the competence, knowledge and experience of both the artist and the workshop, underpinning the aesthetic and monetary value of each rug.

Our rugs range from one-off originals, signed by the artist, to editions of five, ten or twenty. Once an edition is sold, it is never reproduced. Please visit our extensive online collection of rugs to experience these unique contemporary textile pieces.

Good design is about integrity to the medium. Dilana’s designs are not simply the conversion of paintings, prints or other works into carpets, but a unique approach extending the individual artist’s vision and style into the many possibilities offered by a new medium — a textile designed for the floor.






What our customers say...

“Several years ago I met Hugh Bannerman who told me of his unique business of creating limited editions of hand crafted rugs, the work of New Zealand artists. I visited the Dilana showroom shortly after this and was completely hooked. I fell heavily for a runner of a nikau palm by Michael Reed with just one still available. I hurried home to talk to my husband and luckily he was also impressed with the design and the wonderful quality. We are now the proud owners of three Dilana rugs which stand up very well to day to day living and always look splendid, attracting much admiring comment."
