Lately we have talked a lot about customization.
Mainly we've discussed cutting and shaping broadloom carpet to make a custom rug for a variety of reasons.
Today we are going to discuss custom rugs that are handknotted, specifically from Nepal.
If you like what you see here, please join us and Tamarian Carpets for lunch and an in depth demonstration with samples and slides. See below for details.
When customizing hand knotted rugs, you have many more options. In fact you are practically designing your own rug.
Whatever you do, it will be unique throughout the world and a lasting tribute to your design.
Lots of Options
The image below shows a rug that has been woven to a specific size to fit a particular space.
And here an odd-shaped rug designed to fit a special room.
How nice to enjoy these Nepalese flowers all the way up the stairs and again at the bottom.
When size matters.
From a Painting
This rug was copied from a painting and woven to size.
Using the same design as a popular rug, all that has been changed is the size of the yarn and knot structure. The change makes the rug more neutral. More here.
You will learn how to customize a rug by changing its size, changing its shape, changing its color, changing its texture. You will even learn how to turn a favorite painting into a custom handknotted rug.
