The things we put on the floor

Thursday, May 19th, 2011

So I went to a dance show recently which feature lecturers at my University in London. They were pretty contemporary dances. Some of them were quite boring and went on for too long. One of the solos was about “the things we walk on and sit on”. These “things” were rugs mainly, sheep skins, and hippy rugs. When I walked into the performance space, which is a dance studio with the windows covered so the space was dark, although the space was darkened there was no atmosphere.

The floor was covered in rugs, some of them were not very nice. They smelt like incense and had holes in, most of the rugs were borrowed from friends and students, so it was expected that some of them had holes in. Some of the rugs were sheep skin, some were thin and some were thick and shaggy.

The piece featured multimedia with a film being played at the beginning, the dancer was lying in the position that she was in wen we all walked into the space. I thought she would do the movements on the screen at the same time as being played. She didn’t which was a shame because this would have had a nice continuation between media and live action.

Rugdesigner – The manufacturing process

Saturday, April 25th, 2009

In order to make your design into a real size modern rug, we start by printing your design onto a transfer medium and then attach it onto the primary cloth. This will be the blue print from which we will hand tuft the yarns.
Printing the design onto the cloth minimize the tufting errors.
Rug Designer

We use 100% lamb wool, from our own yarns, which are manufactured and dyed in our factory. After the yarns have been tufted, the modern rug is hand cropped, to provide a levelled profile. A secondary backing cloth is applied which provides stability and durability of the product.

To provide our unique finish, we hand sculpture and trim the rug. Highlighting the individual design, creating textures and delicate profiles, increasing the definition and uniqueness of the modern rug itself.A final inspection assures the quality of our modern rugs.

At this stage any adjustments necessary will be carried out by our experienced rug masters. Once the modern rug passes the final inspection, we label our product as one in a limited collection.

The final stage is the packaging of our products. We endeavour to ensure that the product reaches you in the same condition as it leaves the factory.
