LONDON, Aug. 21, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- London will host their 16th annual London Design Festival from 15th September, welcoming world leaders in design to the banks of the River Thames to represent cultures and countries from around the globe.

CHACCRA will be launching their Nepalese inspired design collection at two events during the Festival, including events at SAMA Bankside and the prestigious London Design Fair. The exhibitions will show handmade Tibetan rugs from the brand's premium design collection, alongside a collection of artisanal pieces from Nepal.

Grounded in traditional craft methodology, the Chakra Design Collection is inspired by the lotus flower and circular aesthetics of Chakra, utilising contemporary colour palettes and unique shapes to create a modern feel within the designs.

The one week festival will bring together top international designers and promises to be a cultural melting pot, exhibiting rare and unique designs from around the globe.
