We are wholesalers of handmade rugs based in Wembley with a large variety of colours, sizes and styles.
Handmade rugs generally fall into two categories; hand tufted and hand woven (or knotted).
Hand tufted rugs are made with a tuft gun which shoots strands of wool into a heated latex loom which is then backed with cotton and the edges sealed off. These rugs typically take 30 minutes per square metres depending on how much detail and type of equipment used. A 3 metres by 2 metre hand tufted rug will take approximately between 3 to 6 hours to make.
Hand woven rugs coming in a much greater variety in terms of the types of piles, wool, dyes, weaving techniques, patterns available in this category. Hand woven rugs can be made using a large variety of fabrics such as silk, allowing for greater artistry. Some hand woven rugs are so intrinsically valuable, they are purchased only to be stored as an investment. Depending on size, knots density & fabric these rugs can take months to make.
