How Rugs are Woven
At Rug Love, we don't just provide rugs; we share the passion infused in their creation. Today, we're peeling back the layers on one of the most traditional techniques still alive in the industry: hand looming and flat weaving. These aren't just styles; they're centuries of history woven into stunning art for your floors.
👀 The Magic Behind Hand Looming and Flat Weave Rugs 👀
What makes these rugs genuinely exceptional? It's all in the meticulous process and skilled hands behind each weave. Crafted using a loom, these flat weave designs require 1-4 artisans depending on the rug's dimensions. In this technique, the yarn, or weft, is passed between the upper and lower warp threads. The artisan then uses a beater to compress the design, ensuring the weft and warp intertwine seamlessly.
This hands-on approach is what gives each rug its unique character, something that mass-produced items simply cannot replicate. The tight interlocking of the weft and warp threads not only creates the flat surface—cherished for its feel and durability—but also allows for vibrant, intricate designs that stand the test of time.
