Making Process of Carpet.
Selection of Wool.
The wool for all of our Oriental rugs is chosen from the best available variety
all around the world. Special care is applied to obtain extra long fiber to give
additional strength and a longer life to the rug.
Dyeing of Wool.
Fast non-toxic chemical dyes are used for the majority of our carpets.
Vegetable (natural) dyes are used for Afghani rugs to give them a natural luster
Design serves as the building block of a carpet. It is drawn on a graph paper
and watercolors are used for the color combination. It is then, translated into
the weavers' code language called ‘Talim', which gives life to the designers
The weavers, weave their soul and character into the carpet they construct,
therefore, each hand knotted carpet depicts a nature of its own. Each knot is
woven with utmost care and excellence to give you the very best.
Hand made Oriental rugs can contain faults. Each Oriental rug is carefully
screened and scrutinized for weaving and other faults, and only the best carpets
are offered for sale.
Washing with Chemicals.
Washing of the carpet is another laborious task, spanning over a four to
five days of step-by-step process, using different chemicals, brings out the
natural color and shine of the weavers creation.
Sun Drying after Washing.
The next phase is of drying all carpets in the sun to give them the ultimate
look that will adorn your dwelling.
After sun drying the carpets undergo the clipping phase. This process imparts an
equivalent look to the wool. It is an inevitable process, which is responsible
for enhancing the details of the hand woven carpet’s design and its colors.
Stretching is applied to straighten the rug. Not every carpet has to go through
this process. Different methods are used to make this process as effective as
Putting new ends and 'Kinaras'.
Fringes are tied a knot at the end to impart durability to the carpet and to
ensure life long use of the hand made carpet.
It takes a few words to describe the final product.“ A Divine Contemplation,
