How a Handmade Rug is Made

It all starts with the design department

 

Then the months of weaving

 

They need this graph to follow the design

 

Then it comes off the loom

 

It goes through a vigorous wash

 

The harder they scrub, the more lustrous it becomes

 

Spread it under the sun to dry

 

The rug is stretched so it looks as rectangular as possible

 

Time to make the fringe look nicer

 

Then the wool is clipped and sheared

 

Final touches

 

Time to carry it out the country
