What is Hand Tufting?
A hand-tufted rug is a much higher-quality rug than one made by a machine. Hand-tufted rugs are crafted by a weaver guiding the pattern or yarn. The backing is made with the rug’s design punched onto a frame. Next, strands of wool or yarn are placed on the frame and are punched using a tufting gun. After the punching, another piece, called a scrim, is placed on the rug with an adhesive to keep the fibers intact. The scrim holds the yarn safely in place. The carpet’s exposed loops are then sheared so the rug becomes flat. The edges of some hand-tufted rugs are bound to make them stronger.
Custom Hand Tufted Rugs Are Handcrafted charm
Hand-tufted rugs are deeply textured and come in rich hues and designs. There are unlimited colour options, countless yarn types and innumerable designs to choose from. They lend a cozy charm that helps you unwind. Custom hand-tufted rugs have personality, warmth, and durability woven into every fabric. Since they are relatively faster to make when compared to other handwoven rugs, hand-tufted rugs are a more affordable option too.
The long-lasting construction of a custom hand-tufted rug means that the cozy attraction of your room hogs the limelight for many years.
Maintenance & Durability
Hand-tufted rugs are rugged and relatively easy to maintain. If treated fair, they will last for a very long time.
Hand-tufted rugs have to be vacuumed at least once a week to get rid of all the dirt and dust. The rugs must never be shaken or beaten as it will damage the fibers.
If the rug becomes stained, gently wipe the grime off and vacuum the remains. Use a cloth and lukewarm water to remove wet stains. While simple blotting can get rid of stains, avoid using too much water as it can loosen the glue that secures the yarn. Never rub the stains vigorously.
Rotating the rug frequently to regulate the amount of sunlight and foot traffic it receives can help preserve the freshness of the rug and increase its life by manyfolds.
