From sewing the edges of the rug, to applying fringes or braids, we endeavor to reach perfection and deliver the best and most perfect rugs to our clients. When the order includes wall-to-wall or inset carpets, and to ensure a perfect finishing touch, we hold countless possibilities for hand-made finishes for all tastes. From plain endings to fringes, we will show you all possibilities.
The Knotted Fringes
Fringing is a common and somewhat iconic finishing treatment for area rugs. This is a look that is often seen: long fringed tassels, usually a white or off-white color. In hand-knotted rugs, the fringe is necessary, as it is the edge of the “backbone” fibers of the rug. On machine-made rugs, however, fringe is only for appearance and serves no practical purpose.
We normally used four types of fringes: single knotted, double-knotted, triple-knotted and mix
. Because we have a dyeing and material department, we still have the possibility to create fringes with infinitive colors using different materials, such as wool, botanical silk and jute.
Applying the fringes it is not an easy job and it is usually made carefully by artisan’s hands with lots of passion, patient and perfection. It’s in our finishing department that the magic happens because we know it is a very important step for the final result.
Braids are the most elegant finishes created by hands. They are produced in the same way as we do hair braids and can be inserted laterally or at the end of the hand-woven tug.
The Plain Fringes
Although we apply fringes with different designs, we can also produce plain finishing’s, without knots. Made of botanical silk and wool, every finishing touch is essential.
The Plain Ending
You don’t to create an ending with fringes, you just can choose something more simple and discreet. That’s why we also have the opportunity to apply a finishing plain, striped or folded.
