HOW RUGS ARE MADE
A story behind how a rug/carpet is created from a scratch to a beautiful master piece for your home.
PROCUREMENT OF YARN
The procurement process of raw material yarns is done by import or local process. This process purpose is to fulfillment demand target of the product according to customer desires.
DYING OF YARN
The dye is put into separate containers based on its color. Then a large amount of wool is submerged into each container.
This allows the dye to stick and set onto the wool. It must be checked every so often by an expert artisan to make sure the correct shade is achieved. It takes years of practice and skill to know when the material is dyed the correct amount.
DESIGN IS MADE
Few years ago, Artists used to draw out the rug’s design on a paper and then color it so that the weavers can follow along during the creation process. This is commonly referred to as the “mapping by hand.”
These days, there are different software which can be used to make changes on the fly and this process now is very fast.
The loom is already set with the warp.
Skilled weavers start weaving the rug, they feed wool inbetween the warp and ties knots on each one to secure them. Each knot is ties by hands and then cut by a small knife.
Multiple artisans work together to make sure that the piece is weaved correctly. Skilled weavers may have to spend months tying each knot to complete the weaving and bringing our a magnificent piece for our homes.
