Hand Tufted

Hand Tufted:

A hand tufted rug is made by punching strands of wool onto a canvas which is then stretched on a frame. Hand tufting is completed with the help of a hand operated tool and does not require the same skill level as hand knotting.  Generally, hand tufted rugs are cheaper than hand knotted rugs.

Hand tufted rugs can be incredibly beautiful. I’m still inspired and surprised by the skill and artistry required to create handmade rugs. I think this skill makes them all the more special as each rug has a unique story.

Do you have any hand tufted rugs in your space?  I would love to hear from you!
