Hand tufted rugs should not be mixed up with machine-made tufted rugs. Hand tufting is a traditional method, which requires a high level of craftsmanship. Our rugs are entirely made by hand: the yarn is hand dyed, tufted by hand with a small mechanical tool and finally sheared, using hand held scissors. No electricity is used.
Our hand tufted rugs are available in different shapes and measures. We have a wide range of different designs and patterns and also a high availability for customers to order other sizes.
We use 100% wool (New Zealand and fine Indian wool mix) and Tencel® as primary bases for our tufted rugs. This wool is rich in natural fats that give the rugs a beautiful luster while also providing good protection against stains. Tencel® is a natural fiber from fast growing forests and is 95% bio degradable. Our tufted rugs have either 100% of one material or a mix of the both, depending on the choosen design. Please see information on every rug separately.
The pile height of our hand tufted rugs is approx: 2 cm and the weight is approx: 3,5 kg/m². Unlike the 100% wool, the pile of the Woolsilk rugs are lightly rough cut.
