Woven carpets are more of an art form than a flooring. They are woven on automated looms with multi-colored yarns, and the designs often come from the point of view of the weaver. Woven carpets are unique because they are handmade by skilled craftsmen in India.

Because they are handmade, the carpets have inconsistencies and every carpet is different, even if the same pattern is repeated. Made by hand, each piece has a distinctive look and feel. They are made of pure wool, which is durable and at the same time has a natural soil repellency. The woven carpets have a natural shine. Long fiber wool is used to minimize peeling. Beautiful embroidery designs on the rugs give the rug depth and texture

Handmade woven rugs

A woven carpet is made on a special loom and the knots are made by hand. It is a very old art that is admired over generations. The weaving of the carpet starts from the bottom up. Weaving is very tedious and time consuming because the weaver ties the knots by hand. The time it takes to finish a woven carpet depends on the size of the carpet and the complexity of the design. In fact, it sometimes takes more than a year for a very fine rug to be woven.

Materials for making woven carpets

Hand-woven rugs are made of wool, jute, bamboo, recycled plastic or a blend of silk and cotton or some other natural material. Silk is often used in wool carpets to emphasize, outline or enhance the design. These rugs are reasonably priced and fit perfectly in any room of your home. A fine woven carpet with mosaic pattern will beautify your home or office in any case.

Care and maintenance of woven carpets

Woven carpets can be kept clean by regular sucking and turning. Dried stains or stains can be removed by scraping in the middle of the stain. For wet stains, first wipe with paper towels or napkins and then clean with a mild detergent and a damp cloth. If required professional carpet cleaners can be consulted.

Hand-woven rugs are also referred to as Oriental rugs or hand-knotted rugs. Such carpets are collectibles that are passed down through generations. Given the lifetime of woven carpets, they offer the best value for money.
