Creating Handmade Rugs

Even after three thousand years of craftsmanship and expertise, the methods used to create the world's finest rugs remain the same. Handcrafted by master artisans, whether knotted or woven, each step is infused with superior skill and the utmost care to produce masterpieces of illuminating beauty.

From spinning the yarns to trimming the pile, every stage is executed with the precision and standards of excellence only true masters can achieve.

Preparation

  • Sorting

    Whether Indian jute, hemp, or the finest Nepalese silk, the raw threads are hand-sorted and washed, removing impurities and enabling only the finest strands to be selected.

  • Carding

    This process transforms the selected strands into workable threads. An integral part of the rug making process, the strands are hand combed and cleaned before being spun.

  • Spinning

    In order for the raw strands to be transformed into workable threads, our artisans use Chakras or hand-wheels to prepare the immaculate threads which, after dyeing, are used to create the stunning rugs featured in our collection.

Dyeing

With our unmatched offerings in contemporary design and limitless options in customization, the passion and experience of our Dye Masters is intrinsic to their work. After preparation of the dyes, precise matching of the colors, and a gentle open-air drying process this enables them to produce a unique brilliance that not only wows on first impact, but retains its integrity to stand the test of time.

Weaving

Once the yarn is dry it is ready to be woven, either by being knotted or tufted. Whichever process is selected, each rug is always woven by hand to ensure perfect execution. These traditional methods allow for special time and care to be taken ensuring that each and every offering is of the highest quality and standards.

Rod

To create the pile, the rod is hammered onto the completed rows, tightly packing them together. The yarns are then cut along the rod by the weaver.

Washing

After the previously detailed steps have been undertaken with the care and sincerity they deserve, the rug is ready to be washed for the final time before presentation. Water is forced through each rug by hand using sharpened wooden planks to remove any remaining dirt and yarn particles revealing what we believe is a true work of art.
