Hand-Knotted Rug: These rugs can be treated as heirloom pieces. This weaving technique dates back to the 1600’s when Indian artisans were trained by the Moghuls to weave massive rugs for Royalty. The technique is used till date where the carpets knots are tied after being inserted into the base. Sustainable and long lasting, these rugs are made with natural materials like wool and pure silk. Nowadays, some artisans choose to add textures with a combination of different materials into a single hand-knotted rug. In the hands of a master craftsman, a hand-knotted rug has the potential to last for centuries and gain antique value over time.

Flat Weave Dhurries and Kilims: Dhurries are created by tightly interlocking warp and weft threads to produce a flat surface rug with no pile. Although native to India, there are several types of Dhurries known as kilims, soumac and flat weaves. Biggest advantage of these type of flat line rugs is that they are slim, can be moved and installed easily. Nowadays, there are various techniques used to produce high-end dhurries and kilims with a knotting technique. Some can even be made to give an antique finish and look.

Hand-Tufted Rug: To produce a hand-tufted rug, a canvas fabric is stenciled with a layout stretched on a frame. A tufting gun is used to pierce the yarn through the canvas fabric to trace the design. Techniques such as loop piles, cut piles, hand carving gives the flexibility to produce almost any kind of design in this technique. Modern and sustainable rugs have a long life and fast production times.

Maintenance And Care

Carpets are frequently described as works of art and caring for them properly will extend their lifespan. Cleaning your carpet on a regular basis with a broom, soft brush, or vacuum, depending on the carpet, will help it maintain its worth and shine. Every few months, it’s also advisable to frequently air the carpet in soft sunlight.

Just like the rest of your house, your rug can be vacuumed on a regular basis. You won’t need to have your rug professionally cleaned as frequently if you maintain it with a vacuum, it will look better and last longer.

Avoid spills, but if they do occur, quickly blot them with a paper towel, then spritz water (or club soda) on the area and blot again. Repeat as required. Spraying white vinegar on pet pee can help break down the enzymes responsible for the foul smell. You can also call an expert to do the cleaning for you, they are skilled people who know how to clean your carpets and make them look as good as new ones.
