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
