Students to Unveil Products Designed for Abu Rugs at Market

10.16.2013

Who: High Point University students, market attendees and Abu Khan, owner of Abu Rugs.

What: Unveiling of rugs designed by HPU students and manufactured by Abu Rugs.

Where: Abu Rugs at 5626 Riverdale Road in Jamestown

When: A walk-in reception will be hosted from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 20. The unveiling of the rugs with the HPU students and Abu Khan takes place at 12:30 p.m.

Why: Abu Khan, owner of Abu Rugs in Jamestown, gave five HPU interior design majors the opportunity to design rugs that he then produced for them. Two rugs – one a collaborative project between four students and one designed by a single student – were put into production and will be unveiled at the Abu Rugs showroom during the High Point Market.

“Being able to immerse ourselves into this very rewarding experience was invaluable,” says Alexandra Trenary, part of the four-person design team. “We learned so much along the way building off what we have learned at HPU, and we can now say that we are full-fledged rug designers.”
