By definition, bespoke products are designed to be tailor-made to the client’s desires. We, therefore, offer our bespoke
rugs not only in wool but also in a mixture of both wool and silk. Our bespoke range is the ideal choice for a sophisticated,
lavish finish to any room which can serve as a truly eye-catching addition to your home.
We offer the following 3 different qualities and construction types of Bespoke Rugs – Hand tufted, Hand-loomed and Hand-knotted. It depends on the design, quality and budget as the type of weaving determine the appearance of the finished rug, as well as the price due to the time and labour that is involved in making a custom rug. Just to put it in perspective a medium hand-knotted rug can take 5-6 months to make, the same size in hand-loomed 2-3 months and only 1-2 months for a hand-tufted quality.
Hand-knotted is the highest quality but also the most labour-intensive weaving quality which can only be performed by professional weavers who follow the given map by the designers to tie individual knots to make up the rug design one row at a time.
the density and quality of hand-knotted rugs are measured by the knots per square inch, the higher the knot counts the longer it takes to make and the higher quality the rug becomes.
Hand-loomed is considered for plainer or linear style rugs, this type of weave can not be used for more intricate or busy patterns but rather styles like stripes, borders or plain rugs.
A hand-operated loom is used by the weavers to create these custom rugs, the loom holds the vertical threads which are also referred to as warp, which allows the craftsman to interweave horizontally to create the rug.
Hand-tufted is the most cost-effective but versatile option for creating Bespoke rugs. Individual tufts of yarn are punched using a special tufting gun into a Hand-tufted is the most cost-effective but versatile option for creating Bespoke rugs
Individual tufts of yarn are punched using a special tufting gun into a fabric pre-made canvas, this hand-operated tool hooks and pulls the yarn through the backing to form a pile. This is less labour and time-consuming process than the above hand-knotted and hand-loomed processes and rugs can be made a lot quicker and cost less.
Bespoke Rug Making Process
The foremost and the first step in creating a Bespoke rug is to discuss the client’s design requirements. We share images of these with our designers who would initially create a CAD and once this has been approved we will move on to the rug-making process
