3Hand-Tufted Rugs

One of the most innovative programs we have at Couristan is our ability to provide customers with the option of creating a custom hand-tufted rug. Hand-tufted rugs are among the most luxurious, creative and artistic in the world of rug production. Several factors contribute to their lavishness, including yarn content, fine detailing and finishing techniques. Material yarn content that we use is primarily high quality 100% wool, most being manufactured with 100% New Zealand wool yarn. Other yarns, such as nylon, cotton and linen, may also be incorporated. Accents in silk or bamboo add a lush, rich sheen when used in tandem with wool and add a striking detail to your carpet. Merino and semi-worsted wool yarns are also available for your convenience. These yarns are finer and are used for more intricate design detail including petit point loop and low tight cut-pile constructions, making for an extremely smooth, soft and durable surface.

When we manufacture a tufted rug for you, you have the ability to choose from a wide variety of surface options and finishes that will suit your individual style and design aesthetic. Some surface options include cut-pile, loop pile or a combination of the two. Among some of our finishing techniques are random shearing, carving, beveling, recessing and embossing, which may be applied to these surfaces, giving your tufted rug a touch of your own personal elegance. A combination of surface levels can be used to create a high degree of sculpting, giving off three-dimensional effects, which adds an extra wow factor to your rug. There is no limitation to shapes and sizes you can choose for your tufted rug; if you can dream it, we can create it! The only limitation is the practicality of shipping and delivering the finished product to the project site.

After the design process is completed, your Couristan contract specialist will send the custom design to one of our skilled and experienced designers, who will render the design into a scaled production-ready format using the latest computer-aided designing software. Once the design is approved, a sample is manufactured in the design, scale, color and finish requirements of your request. This “prototype” process normally takes 3-4 weeks to complete.

THE HAND-TUFTED PROCESS

After the sample is approved and the order finalized, the next step of the production process is to see the design come to life, which starts by being transferred onto tracing paper. The tracing paper is then projected onto a stencil to the size of the rug that is to be manufactured, and cut. While the design stenciling is in process, the yarn is being skein dyed to match your approved colors. When the yarn is ready, the canvas stencil is stretched and secured onto a vertical frame where the technicians, using hand-held tufting guns to insert the yarn, color numbered placements onto the stencil. Your custom rug is now ready to be shipped and delivered to you.
