Amira

Inspired by Chinese carpets from the late 18th century, our hand-knotted Amira rug features a center medallion surrounded by lotus flowers and a border pattern taken from traditional Chinese fretwork. Equally at home in modern or classic spaces, the thick yarns and versatile colors give it a timeless appeal. The dyeing and finishing techniques used add a vintage look, subtle sheen and one-of-a-kind variations in color and texture.

Please note that shedding is a natural occurrence in high-quality wool rugs, but will decrease over time. The amount of shedding will depend on the traffic pattern and use of your rug.

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.

    Nice rug, which we put near the couch in our great room. I wish it came in a slightly wider size. We got the 8 by 12 and could have used 10 by 14. The custom rug by sqr ft would have been twice the cost of the pre-cut option.

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

          Within a month of purchasing this I called with concerns over the shedding. Customer service told me to vacuum on 'bare floor' setting, which I did. 7 months later it is still shedding excessively and there are thinning areas where the white fibers are showing significantly more than other areas. After several complaints via email I was finally told I could return it but would be charged up to 50% restocking fee. I asked to talk to someone personally and received another email telling me 'not to worry' this shedding was 'normal' and my rug would last me forever. I am not happy with the rug and am really not happy with the customer service! I would not recommend it even for low traffic areas. We are a retired couple who rarely needs to vacuum and yet after 7 months of twice a month vacuuming, the rug is thinning to where it no longer looks good.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Delivery was great. Customer service was very poor. See comments.

            What a beautiful rug! We bought this to use in our lower level family room, but it was so lovely that we put it in our living room instead. The color and pattern are fantastic, and we love that it looks slightly worn in a few spots. It really completes the room. We have not had it very long, but it appears to be a well-made rug. The price was excellent for wool, and we feel it will last a long time. Another great purchase from Room and Board!

            Service and delivery comments:

            Outstanding, as always. The rug was delivered at the beginning of the time frame I was given on the phone. The delivery crew were courteous and professional, and we were notified by phone several days in advance with the exact delivery date, then again the day before delivery with a one-hour time frame for receipt of our items.

                Classy rug. Great gray color, and the design is muted enough to pass as modern/contemporary, and not "Indian." Goes well with our recently remodeled, modern great room. Delivery was smooth -- drivers came in, moved furniture and set the rug up nicely.

                        This rug is fantastic and very versatile. It works well with modern, traditional or transitional style and furniture. The color is beautiful and the pattern is very subtle - just enough to add some interest and also help hide and daily traffic. It probably needs a rug pad, though.
