Know Your Rug

Handloom - A different kind of loom is used in the production process which makes the work faster than traditional carpet knotting. However, the newer method does not allow for advanced patterns so they are only available in single colors or simple geometric patterns. The value-for-money carpets are ideal for both a well-designed office or in a home with modern decor.

 

Shaggy Rugs- These shag rugs are hand-tufted of super-soft, yarns that will not fade or bleed creating a rug rich in texture and ideal for today's design-centered lifestyles. Each rug blends chunky thick strands of yarn, for a hefty feel and a fresh look. Better yet, these shag rugs are made with the latest non-shedding fibers, making daily maintenance a breeze.

 

Natural Fibers- Natural Fiber Rugs are Eco Friendly as they are produced using a range of natural products including Hemp, Jute and Sisal. These collections offer unique textures that are hardwearing and very popular for high traffic areas such as dining rooms, kitchens, hallways and conservatories.

 

Hand Tufted – A great value, tufted rugs are like pieces of cut (or loop) pile carpet, and can be solid, patterned, or bordered. Tufted rugs are mid-range in quality.

 

Hand Knotted - Knotted rugs, such as traditional Persians, can have very complex designs, and are painstakingly made by hand. The quality of the rug is usually determined by the number of knots per square inch.

 

Hand Woven - Rugs that are flat-woven on a loom are often geometric in design and can be made of cotton, silk, wool, or synthetics. Flat woven rugs include Dhurries and tribal rugs, among others.
