Hand-tufting is the process of creating a rug partially by hand and partially by a mechanised tool. The process requires a tufting gun that our skilled artisans use to punch the fibre strands into the base fabric of the rug. The advantage of hand-tufting is that you can get a range of curvilinear shapes,colours and different strand heights within the same rug, letting you have complex and beautiful designs.
Hand-knotting is a traditional rug-making technique, where your rug is woven by hand on a special loom. It takes time and considerable skill to produce these rugs, which is why only some of our most experienced artisans make it. Unlike hand-tufted rugs, they are flatter and can be made from a range of different materials.
A classic weaving technique, a kilim rug is made by interweaving the warp and the weft, or the vertical and the horizontal strands. This produces a flat-weave rug with no pile (rug-speak for carpet height). These rugs usually come in a number of colours and geometric patterns, and can use strands of different thicknesses and types. Kilim rugs are high-density, durable and resistant, even when they are very lightweight.
Wool has traditionally been the most commonly used raw material in rug making because it has a number of advantages. Wool offers quality and flexibility. It is 100% biodegradable, hypoallergenic, easy to care for, and ages well. Besides, it is also considered a great thermal and acoustic insulator, and regulates humidity naturally. Wool rugs help you create the perfect cozy, comfortable environment the Danes call Hygge. We source our wool from ethical, cruelty-free farms that care for the sheep throughout the shearing and extraction process.
This wool is similar to New Zealand wool but with a more intense raw base colour. Since this wool is sourced locally, it minimises the overall environmental impact and carbon footprint of your rug.
Jute is a tropical plant that flourishes in parts of India and Bangladesh. It is one of the strongest vegetable fibres with insulating and antistatic properties, and has a very earthy look and feel. Jute is 100% biodegradable and recyclable, there by minimising the environmental impact and carbon footprint of your rug.
Cotton’s resistance is comparable to silk and the fibre’s hollow structure gives it good thermal protection characteristics. It is generally used to create the warp of rugs.
