RUGS: HOW THEY ARE MADE
CONTEMPORARY RUGS DESIGNED IN BRAZIL AND PRODUCED IN NEPAL AND INDIA
Tibetan rugs, Indian dhurries and handlooms are all handmade. The entire process is manual, from the removal of the sheep's wool to its detailed finishing.
Tibetan rugs are made knot by knot on a vertical loom by experienced artisans. They are made of Tibetan wool, which, due to its high content of lanolin, makes rugs soft and resistant. All rugs are washed and dried in the sun.
Dhurries and handlooms, meanwhile, are made from cotton, wool and bamboo silk. Its manufacture is made in horizontal loom by artisans with ancestral techniques. These rugs are light and adapt well to any space.
