FLATWEAVE RUGS

THE “GO-TO” RUG FOR DURABILITY, STYLE & FAMILY LIVING

A flatweave rug is made without a pile or knots. Crafted on a loom where the weft is tightly intertwined with the warp.

Flatweaves are thicker and stronger than traditional dhurries (traditionally known as a thick, non-pile cotton rug of India) and are handmade from 100% wool. Native to India and surrounding regions, these rug constructions can be coarsely or finely woven.

Flatweaves are affordable, available in diverse patterns and colours and are easy to maintain with the benefit of being reversible.

A great choice for allergy sufferers due to the tight weave and natural 100% pure wool construction.
Although, not as soft or thick as a handtufted wool rug, they are flat with zero pile and can seamlessly fit under furniture, which makes them a great rug choice for under dining tables.

Flatweaves are a great option for all living spaces and high foot traffic areas including custom created hallway runners.

TIMELY QUALITY

HAND-TUFTED RUGS

Many of our unique rug collections are created using the hand-tufted technique in a variety of yarns, textures and colours.

Commonly used to create both classic and contemporary designs, hand-tufting is an effective and time-efficient method to produce a rug design by hand, using a tufting gun. The design is traced and then a handheld tufting gun is used to stitch loops of wool/yarn through a backing cloth, which creates various patterns and textures.

When the hand-tufting process is complete, a secondary backing is glued to the rug. Once dry, a final protective cloth backing and binding is applied for a neat finish. The backing also gives more stability and aids in keeping the rug lying flat on the floor.
The rug is then placed on a finishing surface for shearing, carving or bevelling as the design requires, which in turn creates the pile.

LUXURY

HANDKNOTS

Hand-knotted rugs have been classed as the pinnacle of comfort, luxury and beauty in homes around the world.

For thousands of years, the age-old handknotting technique has been a renowned construction. The intricate design details and complex technique can only be achieved by a highly skilled artisan. New Zealand Wool and Artsilk are the primary materials used to construct our handknots, with each knot tied individually by hand.

The introduction of this pain-staking technique has flourished as an oriental art, with tiny details and precision in design. The number of knots per square inch is directly proportional to the intricacy of the design and durability.
