HAND-KNOTTED CONSTRUCTION DETAILS

Rug Design Process

Rug Design Process

Long before our rugs are woven, they start as a vision of color, composition and material. We design our rugs with inspiration from art and architecture to historical designs and nature. Every color, pattern and texture is carefully considered to ensure the rugs are both beautiful and easy to live with. We use the highest quality yarns for durability and longevity. Rugs set the foundation for your room and we're committed to bringing you an exclusive collection of colors, styles and textures that will last.

How It's Made

How It's Made

Simply put, weavers create each wool rug one tiny knot at a time. Experienced weavers can weave between one to two-and-one-half inches per day, demonstrating the meticulous care that goes into each rug. These unique skills are handed down from person to person—some of the weavers are part of the sixth generation of craftsmen. They are artists who create one-of-a-kind masterpieces.

Construction

Construction

Hand-knotted rugs generally feature intricate patterns that contain dozens of yarn colors. Before weaving begins, the naksha, or master plan, is plotted on huge graph paper in which each square represents one knot in the final rug. Each color on the naksha indicates a specific shade of yarn, which the weaver uses to guide the design.

The loom is prepared for weaving by setting columns of warps, stretched from the top of the loom to the bottom. The rug progresses as knot after knot of woolen yarn is tied on the warps. After the first weft (or row) is woven, it is tamped down with a mallet to keep it tight. A second weft interlocks the warps across each row to keep the knots in place. The weaver—or team of weavers, in the case of large rugs—repeats the process until the entire rug is completed. This labor-intense method produces rugs that are equal parts beautiful and durable.

Finish Details

Finish Details

Hand-knotted rugs do not require backings because their construction makes them stable without one. The reverse side of the rug shows the same pattern as the front; however, the front has a pile and the back does not.

Every rug goes through a range of quality inspections, looking for consistency in size, yarn quality, pile height and shearing. An array of washing techniques are used, each of which achieves a different effect.

Customer comments about Tulum 7'9"x9'9" Rug:

Love, love this rug! We have this rug in a family room. It adds just the right amount of pattern without overpowering the space. Most importantly, it's holding up very well to two kids, a big dog and a lot of daily use and heavy traffic. It does shed quite a bit when new and the no beater bar requirement for vacuuming makes it a bit more difficult to clean. We purchased a rug rake and it made a huge improvement in overall rug cleaning. It effectively removes dog hair and dirt and allows the vacuum to get the rest. I would highly recommend this rug!

Service and delivery comments:

Room and Board delivery is always great. The delivery team moved our furniture, moved the old rug, positioned the new rug in place and cut the existing rug pad to fit the new rug. Everything was clean and the furniture back in place upon their departure. Great service!

Customer comments about Tulum 5'7"x7'10" Rug:

I've had my eyes on the Tulum rug for some months. A bit over priced IMO, but I could not find anything remotely close to the pattern. Also, love the black and beige which is a beautiful contrast to hardwoods and furniture. Does need a pad underneath to provide some cushion if on a hard surface.

    Customer comments about Tulum 7'9"x9'9" Rug:

    I was unsure about purchasing the black instead of the blue in this rug but I'm very happy with the black. I received the rug before my new furniture so I couldn't wait to unfurl it. I love rugs and have had many I've liked a lot, this rug I absolutely LOVE ! It makes my small den instantly sophisticated and inviting. This rug can pull any room together in an instant. If a rug could be intelligent this one is that too.

      Beautiful rug, very nice pattern and color. Gives a special pop to the room but it isn't overwhelming at all. We have yellow walls and a nice sunny space and this rug looks great. Love that it's 100% wool, no synthetic backing so it's very non-toxic and has no odor. Looks great.

      Delivery was quick and easy.

        Customer comments about Tulum 8'2"x11'6" Rug:

        We have had countless rugs in this space and have never been as happy as we are with the Tulum. I was hesitant to get a rug with a light color for this high use area, but it has maintained beautifully under normal family usage. I adore the colors and the print while bold and repetitive doesn't overpower the space and acts as a pop of color yet is neutral enough to allow other colors in the room to shine through.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Delivery is always amazing with R&B.
