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 Heriz 8'9"x11'6" Rug:

    We absolutely love this rug. We bought this rug the week after we moved into our house. It was the perfect addition to our dining room. We've had it for a year and it is still as beautiful as the day we purchased it and everyone that comes over still comments on how beautiful it is. the low pile is great as our shiba inu likes to dig in the rug and hasn't snagged it yet. This is the 8th item we have purchased from room and board and as always are delighted with the service, quality and style!

      Customer comments about Heriz 8'9"x11'6" Rug:

      I hesitated to purchase this rug based on the price. I'm lucky to be in MN and saw it at the outlet but didn't buy based on price. I waited and waited for it to come back to the outlet and another one showed up a few weeks later- and I quickly snapped it up. Like others have mentioned, it's totally worth it - the colors are beautiful. Also as others have mentioned it is thin.

      Customer comments about Heriz 8'9"x11'6" Rug:

      I literally just laid out the rug in my living room which is on the 30th floor of a downtown Chicago high-rise with 3/4 windows on two sides so I get a lot of natural light. I have to say the colors are incredibly beautiful and vibrant. Though I kept the sample for a month, even the sample doesn't do it justice. The blues remind me of the windows of Chartres Cathedral, and the khaki green changes hues throughout the day. It's a perfect accent to my condo.

      Service and delivery comments:

      I picked it up from the shipping center and they were extremely courteous, helpful, and kind in helping me put it in the car.

      I had my eye on this rug for about two years and held off on ordering it due to cost. Also we do not have a store in Houston so I could only view it online. Finally I took the leap and ordered it. So glad I did. The colors are perfect. It's a beautiful and unique rug that will last a lifetime.

        The rug design is on the traditional end of the spectrum but the colors are contemporary (and changeable depending on the type of light in the room). It pulls the room together and is a focal point for my living room. It is soft to the touch, low pile and strong. Needs a great rug pad.

        Service and delivery comments:

        The delivery team was professional and courteous. They cut my rug pad to size and laid out the rug, patiently allowing me to make small tweaks until I was satisfied that it was just right.

            This rug is stunning however.....it is very thin and there were several snags upon arrival. After a couple weeks it developed even more snags. The R&B customer service exchanged the rug for me after I took pictures of the obvious areas that were defective. The next rug had the same issues. Finally, the third rug is holding up OK. At the price point I was expecting a rug I didn't have to worry about and that would last for years and years. I appreciated the customer service but beware of the durability of this rug. That being said, I love the look of it and am glad I hung in there through all the problems!

              I've had this rug for all of 8 months and it has countless snags. It also has a super thin pile for the price. I have other rugs in similar price points that I can actually lay on and not feel the floor beneath me--not so with this one. Very disappointed by the quality of this product, though the design and colors are great.

                We have the Heriz rug in the ink color in our living room, along with the Dean sofa and Dunn coffee table. The colors are great - they change throughout the day or depending on your angle of view. Although the colors look very "specific" on the website, it truly is versatile. So glad we decided on this rug after looking at what felt like thousands of rugs...

                  Room and Board's buyers have superb taste. On line, this rug looks extremely specific, but it pairs well with a lot of colors, has a classic design, and it is very well made. It has a short pile, though, so spring for a good felt rug pad.
