Handmade rugs with the company’s signature

The art of creating handmade rugs was lost in the depths of history. Rugs were once woven in all of the world’s countries. Today, their production only takes place where traditions and arts remain unaffected by industrialization and automation. Whether produced by nomadic tribes in the depths of Manchuria and Mongolia, or in villages and towns in Persia, Turkey, Pakistan, Azerbaijan, Nepal, India and China, the process – based on ancient techniques – after all this time remains the same: natural wool treatment, dyeing with all-natural dyes, passion and countless hours of effort.

The value of handmade rugs remains consistent over time. The designs, the colours, the inspiration of the techniques all tell grand myths and stories with ancient roots.

By buying today a handmade rug, you’re essentially making a significant investment in time but also in improving your overall sense of aesthetic. You preserve the traditional values ​​and bring in to life the dreams of thousands of artisans, who have put part of themselves in them, to offer us this feeling of warmth and these fantastic combinations of designs and colours with classic or minimal designs. The sight and touch of a well-made handmade rug will always move and fascinate everyone.

A special but an elegant purchase

Buying a handmade rug isn’t an everyday purchase. It’s more like an investment. So you have to be very careful.  Some information will help through your purchase, as well as in the maintenance and storage of your handmade rugs. Don’t forget that you’ll spend a significant time using them. So follow your instincts and the necessary instructions given to you. As we’ve said it, the handmade rug is a living organism. It “matures” and “coexists” with us.

  1. Choice of trader – consultant: As the old and wise people used to say, there are three people in your life you have to trust: your goldsmith, in your fur provider and your rug seller.
  1. Size choice: Prefer small rugs. Not only do they visually enlarge your space, but their value also stands out better. After all, in the living room, the carpet should not get covered by the sofas, while in the dining room, the guest’s chair, when used, should step on the rug.
  1. Choice of colours: Let your soul choose the colours that express and signify you and not the ones that probably be a “better match” for your space because then your rug will be “integrated” with the whole decoration and lose its character and uniqueness.
  1. Choice of style and aesthetics: From classic to minimal. Bleached, patchwork, Nepal, erased, Mohammadi, Zeigler, Bochara, Tabriz, Nain, Isfahan and many more.
  1. Quality selection: Contrary to what you may think, there are no better or worse handmade rugs. Maybe we better define it as a good sale or a lesser good sale. A handmade rug will always be a handmade rug. In other productions, we absolve mistakes and natural imperfections during the weave that makes them unique while in others not. Some factors such as wool quality, the weave, the patterns, the knots, the rarity, the finishing, the washing and trimming play a crucial role in determining the level of your rug, but never its uniqueness and magic.

  1. All-wool rugs are considered the best because wool offers so many natural benefits. Their pile doesn’t fall, and the colours retain their shades. They don’t stain easily or get burned, and they’re more durable and warmer. Natural silk has the same characteristics; a material which gives more shine to the rug.
  1. Besides the impressive frontside – the pile of a handmade rug – also pay attention to the backside of a rug. Looking in the backside, you should see clearly the design, the layout, the density of the knots and if there are defects, patches or tears on the rug.
  1. The denser the knots on the back of the rug, the more detailed the design can be and the longer it takes to create. Also, the characteristic weaving technique and the style of a carpet indicate the country of origin.
  1. With a simple test, you can find out on your own the quality and the type of weaving technique of your handmade rug. Using a pointed object on the backside try to remove one of the rug’s knots. Naturally, it shouldn’t come out. But if you manage to take out a knot due to thinner weave, it should look like a crumpled greek letter called “gamma” (γ).
  1. Remember, the complexity of the designs and the technique of the knot not only uncover its origin but also raises its production time and overall price.
  1. The secret for the perfect final look, as well as the suitable laying on the floor, is due to the mastery of the craftsman, in the suitably processed raw materials and in the rightly assembled looms.
  1. Also, you can calculate the number of knots per square meter yourself by following the instructions below.

Some unique handmade rug knots

  1. The “Single-warp” knot: Ideal for intricate designs. The knot is tied around a single warp that alternates in each row.
  1. The “Tibetan” knot: Is the one in which the loop passes around a fixed rod during weaving. The loop is later cut to create the pile.
  1. The “symmetrical Turkestan” knot: The knot’s cut ends are shown in the middle of the two warps around in which they are tied.
  1. The “asymmetric Persian” knot: This knot shrouds around the warp and is open from left and right. Thus, better weaving is achieved.
  1. The “nomadic” knot: Has a symmetrical and an asymmetrical formation, both wrapped around the two warps. It serves quickly and creates a very stable weave.
  1. The “vase-shaped” knot: Three ropes of yarn between each row of knots are tied tightly on two different levels.



On the back of the rug form a square 1cm X 1cm and measure the knots on its two vertical sides. Multiply the two numbers to find the knots in the square centimetre.

Then multiply by 10,000 to find the knots in the carpet per square meter. Repeat the measurement at three different points on the rug to see the average.
