We are honored to weave it as a handmade custom rug for you.
For environmental reasons and to provide our full bespoke service, our rugs are always made to order.
Delivery time for this rug is approx. 12 weeks, depending on the desired size and technique.
About 700 000 knots are woven by hand to make this rug in the smaller size.
• Technique: Tibetan handknotted in 150 knots per square inch or Handtufted.
In the Tibetan handknotted technique we follow the centuries-old handcraft tradition. We first set a vertical wooden loom, on which we stretch cotton warp threads from the bottom to the top in a continuous loop. We then make the knots around two warp threads and a metal rod. The knot count (80, 100 or 150 kpsi -knots per square inch-) states how many individual knots are made in one square inch. A higher knot count allows for more detail in the design while also resulting in a finer rug texture and a longer-lasting rug, as the knots are tighter and denser. Tibetan rugs are extremely high-quality and an wonderful example of pure handcraft.
To create this rug using the handtufted technique, we insert tufts or loops of yarn through a fabric backing using a "tufting gun". We then apply a latex layer to hold the tufts in place and sew a resistant cotton backing on. The tufting method requires a high level of expertise and artistry to reproduce intricate patterns. It is ideal for rounded shapes, as it does not need to follow the design row by row and the yarn can be added freely anywhere, thus allowing for soft curves.
• Material: New Zealand wool.
Pure New Zealand wool is a high-quality, resilient material that offers the brightest colour absorption and creates wonderfully soft rugs.
