Christopher Legge and Angela Seger-Legge are a husband-and-wife team with expertise and flair, specialising in antique and contemporary carpets and textiles.
Christopher trained and practised as a repairer before opening his first shop in Witney in 1974 and is a renowned expert in the field of tribal weavings. His travels to Iran over the past 30 or so years have taken him to the major centres of weaving, but also to more remote and less known areas of carpet production. He has been a driving force in the more “organic” methods of carpet making in the country, involving the use of natural dyes and non-chemical washing of new carpets.
Angela is responsible for the introduction of contemporary rug art to the business, in particular the cooperation with Jan Kath, a leading carpet designer worldwide, whose pieces have won numerous international awards and whose body of work has been at the forefront of carpet design of our time. She has also introduced a stronger emphasis on antique textiles.
Together, they run their gallery from the leafy suburb of Summertown in Oxford. They are open from Thursday to Saturday, 9.30 am to 5 pm, or by appointment.
