BESPOKE HANDWOVEN RUGS

Bespoke Handwoven Rugs 

Within the bespoke handwoven rugs you can find thick braided jute rugs, contemporary flatweaves, handwoven pieces with short pile and new made Beni Ouarain rugs. All can be made in your favourite colour combo and size! Trust me size matters!

The production time for a bespoke rug is about 3 months.

Selecting the right style:

Rugs help to set the tone of a room so it is important you decide on the feeling that you are trying to achieve. Whether the mood is luxurious, elegant, casual, contemporary or traditional, your rug will serve to enhance this feeling.

I personally love geometric designs as they are pleasing to the eye and help instil a sense of calm and order (and I love order!). Low-pile rugs such as flatweaves and hand-knotted pieces with a short pile are best for dining rooms and areas with some footfall. Alternatively, our Moroccan Beni Ouarain rugs are great to add texture, like in bedrooms or living rooms.  They have a calm and minimalistic look and add comfort underfoot.

Selecting the size:

When it comes to selecting the size of the rug, each room is different, however here are some guidelines that are worth keeping in mind!

Sitting room: The front legs of the sofa or armchairs should sit on the rug and there should be an overhang of at least 15cm at the sides

Bedroom: The most popular options are to either sit a large rug underneath the whole bed, bearing in mind a large proportion will be covered, or to opt for a runner on one or both sides of the bed. In either case, there should be a 20cm gap between the side tables and the edge of the rug, still ensuring that there is some rug to land on when getting out of bed.

As a rule of thumb, you should allow an overhang of at least 45cm at the base and sides. Personally I prefer it slightly more generous, with an overhang of about 60cm to 85cm, depending on the size of the room and furnitures.

Dining room: Low-pile rugs such as flatweaves and hand-knotted pieces with a short pile are best here so chairs can slide in and out without catching. The rug should also be large enough so that the chairs do not fall off the edge when pulled out.

A rule of thumb the chairs should sit on the rug with an overhang of about 20cm. Alternatively, measure the dining table and add approximately 120cm-150cm to the length and/or width, depending on the shape of the table and layout of the room.

Bespoke Jute Rugs 

Our bespoke jute rugs have a thick plain braided weave with slightly raised borders at the ends. It has a good thickness, in fact they are very heavy, and both sides are the same so they are reversible. They have a soft texture and a natural warm colour palette with plain woven design. They can be made bespoke in your required size!
