Made with the same craft and technique as rugs of old, your bespoke rug will be steeped in the history of a timeless practice.
Created by hand in the mountains of Nepal, the process starts with carding, where the raw wool is separated out so each fibre becomes straight and workable. The wool is then spun into yarn - it’s desired thickness is chosen and the blank canvas from which we work is ready.
Our Tibetan dye masters work hard in their laboratories to create an exact match to the colours that have been chosen, before the wool is pot dyed and pulled out a day or so later, completely transformed.
After the vibrant and colourful yarns are left to dry out in the raw heat of the Asian sun and a graph image of the design is provided to the artisans, the weaving itself can begin as lines of cotton are tirelessly stretched, looped and knotted.
This is an incredibly long and skilled process where only 10-15 cm of carpet is made each day, meaning a rug can take months or sometimes years to create. Growing in real-time alongside the maker’s everyday lives, these rugs become as much a part of their story as they do yours.
