Sierra

Only hand-spun wool from Nepal, considered among the world's finest, goes into these rugs. Nepalese artisans hand-knot each one, creating true pieces of art. But this is art you can enjoy because natural wool is durable and easy-care even with daily use.

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.

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

    I didn't think this rug looked that exciting in the the store, but I absolutely love the look of it in my family room. The lighter color is neutral but allows the charcoal sofa I bought to really pop. It is definitely an understated look, but the rug seems to be of very good quality. The brown stripe also coordinates nicely with our hardwood floors and furniture.

      Customer comments about Sierra 8'x9'9" Rug:

      Rug seems to be great quality, as Room & Board products always are. It's very soft, so comfortable to be on, understated and lovely. The color was too light for us, just not enough contrast color added in with the light color. It ended up looking too pale and a little bit too plain for our home office which doesn't get much natural light. It looked quite nice in the store though.
