A tribute to our meticulous craftmanship, quality materials and commitment to timeless design, our range of rugs are here to add warmth, texture and a touch of luxury to your space. When it comes to buying the perfect rug for your space, we recognise that there are many different considerations to take into account like sizing, materials, manufacturing and maintenance. Rugs are vital piece of home decor, and they can also become an investment when you’re looking for high-quality and timeless pieces.
Let’s explore our tips to ensure you choose the perfect rug.
Rugs sizes for medium to extra-large rooms.
Our rug collection caters to various room dimensions, offering three distinct sizes: medium (120cm x 180cm), large (170cm x 240cm) and extra large (200cm x 290cm). This versatility ensures that these rugs seamlessly integrate into any space, from a cosy bedroom to a spacious living room.
We recommend having some floor showing around the edges so it doesn’t look like you’re recarpeting the full space. By leaving a border of exposed flooring, you define the boundaries of the rug and anchor it within the room's overall design. Leaving floor space around the edges of your rug not only enhances visual aesthetics but also makes cleaning more efficient by preventing dust accumulation. This design approach ensures a practical and functional arrangement for both the rug and the surrounding floor, contributing to longevity and cleanliness.
Exploring sustainable rug materials.
One of the defining features of our rug collection lies it its diverse range of organic materials and sustainable fibres. From the earthy charm of jute to the plush comfort of wool, to the crisp softness of cotton, each rug is an embodiment of natural elegance. These materials not only contribute to the aesthetic appeal but also bring unique benefits to the table.
Not only is investing in a rug handcrafted from high-quality sustainable materials is an investment in artistry and durability, but it is also an investment in the planet.
Soft Cotton Rugs
Cotton, breathable and versatile, this material adds a layer of sophistication to our rug range. The benefit of cotton lies in its breathability and softness. Cotton fibres allow air to circulate, making these rugs an ideal choice for warmer rooms. The soft feel enhances the overall tactile experience, creating a comfortable and welcoming space.
Not only do the materials enhance the luxurious appeal of the rugs, but the skilled craftsmanship and intricate design poured into each rug also brings forward a rich originality that is unique to handcrafted products.
Natural Jute Rugs
Jute, a natural organic fibre known for its robustness, adds a rustic charm to some of our rugs. From our Hale to Oxnam designs, jute makes these rugs exceptionally durable – an ideal choice for high-traffic areas like the hallway. Jute fibres are hardwearing and resistant to wear and tear, ensuring that the rug maintains its integrity even in the face of daily use. Jute is also an eco-friendly and biodegradable material, contributing to a sustainable and environmentally-conscious interior.
Sustainable Wool Rugs
Wool, often associated with luxury, brings a touch of opulence to our rug collection. The unique benefit of wool lies in its natural comfort and insulating properties. Wool fibres provide soft and plush texture, creating a cosy and inviting atmosphere.
Beyond comfort, wool acts also acts as a natural insulator, helping to regulate temperature and maintain a comfortable ambiance in any season.
Easy to maintain, wool makes for an ideal kitchen or dining room rug. This natural material boasts unique properties like soil and stain resistance, making it the ideal choice for areas where spills are common.
The artistry of handcrafting: woven, tufted, knotted and loomed.
We take pride in the artistry embedded in every stitch of our rugs. Each production technique showcases the care and skill invested in creating each piece. Each rug is carefully designed by us and then crafted by our dedicated team of artisans., to ensure that every piece is well-made, distinct and unique.
Hand-knotting is a time-honoured technique where each individual knot is tied by hand onto the rug’s foundation. From our Elcho to Leys rugs, this hand-knotted process yields a superb-quality rug crafted from high-quality sustainable materials. Its durability, intricate design, and enduring construction make it exceptional.
Hand-tufting involves the use of a tufting gun to push yarn through a fabric base, creating a plush pile. This method allows for the creation of varied textures and patterns, allowing a level of detail that’s often unattainable with automated processes. Our Whitt and Heath rugs are beautiful examples of hand-tufted rugs.
Hand-woven rugs are crafted with love and care, as skilled artisans interlace individual yarns to create the finished piece. This meticulous process allows for the incorporation of intricate patterns and designs, showcasing the artistry and expertise of the artisan. Our sustainable, handcrafted rugs, like Octon and Knill, embrace the imperfections that enrich each piece with distinction and difference.
