Area Rugs: A Tradition of Quality
Crafting area rugs is a true artisanal craft that has been practiced in Central Asia and the Indian subcontinent for more than a thousand years. In countries like Iran, India, Afghanistan and Pakistan, rugs are made by hand using skills inherited from generation to generation. Wool, cotton, or silk is spun into yarn and then colored using traditional organic dyes from plant or vegetable extracts. The rugs are then woven on a loom, which creates the warp (length-wise) strands. Yarn is then individually knotted around these warp strands, which helps journeyman weavers to craft the trademark patterns seen on traditional Oriental rugs. A weft strand is then fed across the width of the rug, which holds the knots in place and forms the pile. After months or even years of knitting, the rug is then finished with extra weaving and protection on the ends, cut to ensure an even pile length, and washed.
Your Swansea Rug Dealers
We believe in quality and authenticity. Ideal ways to look for rug quality is by inspecting the knot count (KPI, or "knots per square inch"), the wool and silk used, and the dying materials. The majority of our area rugs are vegetally-dyed. Textiles that are vegetally-dyed are both attractive and more valuable than chemically or natural-dyed rugs. You'll also want to view the symmetry of the pattern and image.
