A team of skilled artisan's fuse modern and traditional processes to create this hand woven rug.The chosen design is scaled and enlarged to create a ‘graph’ of the rug which is then printed onto canvas and stretched across a frame. Loops of naturally dyed wool, are repeatedly punched through the canvas with a ‘tufting’ gun to create the design. A latex coating referred to as the ‘scrim’ is applied to the reverse, enabling the ‘tufts’ to be held in place, then a final protective natural cotton backing is applied. The top of the rug is sheared to create an even pile which is then hand carved to accentuate elements of the design for a superior finish.
