Once the color is perfect, it’s off to the “charkha”, a manual spinning wheel, and then the sun gets to work and dries and sets the yarn. At the same time, the stencils get started.

'Tufting' is an ancient method of creating rugs & garments wherein strips of cloths, threads or yarns are pushed through a base material. Artisans use a tufting gun to help them guide the yarn into the design. It takes a skilled artisan over 3 days to finish one 8’ x 10’ rug.
5. Quality Check
