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 projecting the design onto the primary backing canvas. While the design stencilling 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 technicians, using hand-held tufting guns insert the yarn, carefully following the stencilled design. Your hand-tufted rug is now ready to be delivered to you.
