Handmade rugs in London are different from machine made rugs because they are created on a handloom that the artist can set to the desired size. Each handloom rug is a work of art created by the skilled hands of the artisan. The crafting of the rug is usually done one of three ways; Hand-knotted, flat weave and hand tufted. Hand knotted and hand tufted rugs have a pile and both are highly labour intensive to create. Flat weave rugs are flat, have no pile and get their depth from an attached backing. Most handmade rugs are made from natural fibres like jute, silk, wool and cotton. Luxury Rugs sell and promote the handmade rugs of some of the finest artisans of our day. Because we have a rapport with these talented people it’s possible for our clients to request a custom feature.
In truth, since each rug is individually made by hand there are no two exactly alike. In London, handmade rugs buyers discover that handmade rugs are more costly than machine made rugs.

Your handmade rug could gain in value over time especially if the artisan is well respected. Likely your handmade rug will last for decades and look good doing it which makes it a bargain even though you pay more today. Because artisans consider their handmade rugs an expression of their art, they use only the highest quality materials. Artist are only satisfied with perfection.
