MohRug is based in Copenhagen and founded by Christina Wright Ottesen and Andrea Rodrigs. Originating from Denmark and Argentina, they met while both living in South Africa. Christina recently moved back to Copenhagen, while Andrea still lives in South Africa.
Coming back from a road trip in Namibia, Christina stopped in a small rural town in South Africa. Here she visited the weaving mill for the first time."It was love at first sight. I will never forget the warm feeling I got, when I entered the former local cinema, where the women were patiently spinning and weaving the most beautiful luxurious mohair rugs, while softly singing.
Our passion for high quality artisan work, combined with a desire to start a meaningful business that would benefit disadvantaged communities and give back to the country we both love so much, was the beginning of MohRug."
