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 Onyx 8'x9'9" Rug:

    This rug is gorgeous... The colors are soft and subtle. It does not shed a whole lot... Minimally. You MUST put a rug pad down under it. We made the mistake of trying it without a rug pad and it was sliding on the floor and forming bubbles. We purchased the rug pad and it solves everything while adding some nice cushion.

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

      Within 48 hours we had lots of "snags" or long bits appearing. We have no pets and are at work all day so I'm not sure how this happened but it was really disappointing. We have a replacement on the way but my hopes are not high that this was a one time fluke. Kind of heart breaking (especially at this price) because we love the design/colors. It is what we based our whole room on.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Delivery was smooth, took some backing and forthing to get a replacement, still waiting to see how the second one holds up, it hasn't been delivered yet.

      A great and durable rug with a contemporary pattern that can camouflage a multitude of boo-boos. Comes as a nice soft thick pile. We've had it only for a week and it's shedding like crazy. We wear a lot of dark colors and it looks like we have a lot of shedding cats. We don't own any furry critters.

            I finally thought a 2 year quest for a great rug that didn't require a bank loan to afford it was over. When I rolled open the rug, I was delighted - the pattern was perfect, the exact emphasis on color I had wanted. I couldn't quite understand why it didn't quite fit under my couch/chairs layout as I had expected. It seemed smaller than I needed. Sure enough, after I thought I had mis-measured my space, I measured the rug and yup, it was a couple of inches shorter in both width and length than it had said it was. A couple of inches either side doesnt sound like a lot, but I felt a little short changed.
            It still looks good though, just not quite perfect.

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

                I was looking for a new rug for a long time before I settled on this beauty. Throughout my 20's (I am 30...), I only owned tufted rugs, which still ran between $400-1000 based on size. They would always shed and never last more than a few years.

                I have had my R&B rug only for about a month, but it has BARELY shed. One of my cats also vomited on the rug, it was there for more than 24 hours, but came right up with some vinegar and some TLC.

                I will also note that because of the colors (grayish blue, tan, and darker cream), it will beautifully hide dirt and every day use. It will also go with many different styles if your styles change over time (as mine do bc I love redecorating).

                Color wise, it definitely has bluish tones, but it is NOT blue. It is also still fairly light (but will hide dirt) so it brightens and does not darken a room.

                While this rug is more expensive than others, it is well worth the price and one of my best home purchases to date.
