About English Village Lane

I'm Angie Burge, unapologetic rug lover and connoisseur. I've been exactly where you are — searching the internet for the perfect rug. Not knowing if it is worth the splurge. Staring at it for hours. Scrolling. Sending the link to my friends. Wondering if my husband would kill me for splurging on a rug that my kids or pets would ruin the minute life happens. After 6 long months of searching, I bought my first oushak style rug. It was perfect and beautiful and of course I wondered why I had ever waited so long.

My heart sank as I watched, as if in slow motion, my 2 year old dropped a plate of spaghetti on my gorgeous new oushak.

If your excuse for not investing in rugs is that life is messy because you have dogs and kids... I am about to rock your world! My husband and I frantically grabbed some hot water and towels to dab the spaghetti stain up and watched as it magically disappeared before our eyes. I knew then that I had to have a 100% wool rug in every room of the house. Luckily, my husband was there and saw the magic firsthand, so he didn't put up too much of a fight. (I don't know if it helped or hurt, but I explained how much I had spent on previous rugs we have had to throw away.)

Unfortunately I had a really hard time finding a rug for every room that didn't have the exact same style. I believe every room needs to flow, but has a different vibe and a different wear & tear need.

With a mission to bring quality craftmanship directly from generationally trained artisans to your door with unconventional designs and a multitude of rug types with prices within reach... say hello to English Village Lane! When considering a rug, please remember these 2 things: the higher the quality, the easier the clean and a little more up front means less in the long run.

We are working hard to produce original designs in modern oushak, flatweave, jute, indoor/outdoor and a host of natural fibers. So, if you don't see something you like on our site, shoot us an email or message us on instagram and we'd be happy to plot how to place different rugs for different rooms based upon the unique needs and budget for your home!

I'll be here all day.
