The hand-tufting is one of the most flexible techniques – it allows the creation of any pattern, almost as if it was a painting. This versatility makes hand-tufted rugs a premium solution for both residential and commercial projects. Whether it is a family home, a high-end store, or a hotel lobby, a hand-tufted rugs are the perfect solution for all purposes.
The process begins when a weaver makes a backing with a design. A textile worker or weaver uses the tufting gun to inject yarn or cotton into it. When all the yarn or other material has been injected into the pattern, another piece, called a scrim, is placed on the rug with latex glue to keep fibers intact. The weaver then shears the carpet loops, so the rug becomes flat and suitable for foot traffic. The edges of some hand-tufted rugs are bound to make them stronger. The yarn is then cut and shaved to ensure equal height. In the case of rugs with different height volumes, the surfaces are cut by hand with special angled scissors. This technique allows the skilled artisans to create curved patterns and pile of different heights and densities.
