Farewell frosty floorboards and ceramic tiles. As the weather cools down, soft furnishings can add instant warmth… and there’s none more effective than a plush rug. 1 Handmade in India. We stock a range of rugs, including cotton, jute, viscose and blends. Most of our rugs are made from wool and meticulously handcrafted in India by highly-skilled craftspeople using ancient rug-weaving techniques and traditional hand looms. Every rug is a one-off… no two are ever exactly the same. 2 From sheep to spindle. An intricate and highly-skilled process, making a wool rug starts with hand-carding the fleece to separate and straighten the wool fibres to prepare them for spinning. The fibre is hand-spun onto yarn spindles and sent off to the dying station where it’s coloured, washed and dried. 3 The wonders of weaving. The yarn is taken to special looms for the weaving process. A weaving graph is used so the artisans have a guide to follow when creating the pattern on each rug. There are a number of different ways to create rugs, from tufting to looming. 4 Made meticulous. Once woven, the rugs are thoroughly washed once again, then dried and stretched on racks. Special sheers ‘carve’ the longer threads in the patterns to make the design flat or stand out as intended. The rugs are then tightly rolled, packaged and shipped to our warehouses, ready to be unrolled in your home.
