A Hand Tufted rug is made by inserting wool tufts through a canvas mesh.  When finished latex and a strengthening scrim is applied to the back of the canvas. The pile is  then sheared to the correct height. 

The pile can be cut to different depths as shown above. A & C have a higher pile height than B. The  lines can also be carved (a slight cut used to tidy up the definition between 2 colours).

The wool we use is 50% best Indian & 50% New Zealand. The New Zealand gives a lustre & the Indian is more hard wearing.
