Mixing and Dyeing
For our woolen rugs, it starts with mixing the right color. With this mix the yarn is dyed, after which it’s dried in the Indian sun, giving texture and vibrancy to the textile.
After spinning the yarn, the actual weaving of the rug starts. Our weavers often work side by side on one loom or work individually to craft our flat weave, hand knot and shuttle rugs.
25hands makes use of traditional weaving techniques, applying them to designs with a contemporary look and feel. The individual weaving techniques and the slight variations in the yarn make that no rug is exactly alike.
Each has its own character and that is exactly how we like it – a good hand woven rug will show this craftsmanship while lighting up your home.
Flat weave rugs are then washed and gently scrubbed. This allows our rugs to shrink just enough to tighten up the weave and increase durability.
After drying, the rug finished by hand and fringes are added if requested. Hand finishing ensures that each rug is as beautiful and well-made as possible. The finishers check every corner and surface of your rug, cutting any loose threads and stitching on the labels by hand.
