Value is determined not by how little or how much a rug costs. A good-quality Modern Designer Hand Tufted can become a collector’s item, but this doesn’t hold true for just any hand-tufted wool & viscose rug. There is a whole range of hand-tufted rug ones, from poorly made examples to exquisite ones. Hand-tufted rugs also have superior value because they are original, not mass-produced. Hand-tufted rugs never quite achieve heirloom status because they are not one of a kind. But they can still be beautiful to look at and make an appealing and interesting addition to your interior decor. The process for creating a hand tufted rug differs greatly.
It is made by punching strands of wool into a canvas that is stretched on. a frame with the help of a hand-operated tool. This process is not very time. After piling with wool, the rug is removed from the frame, and a scrim fabric is glued to the back. To complete the rug, a fringe is added by either sewing or gluing it on. Hand tufted rugs are still highly durable and can last for 15-20 years without a problem. Modern Designer Hand Tufted are not made on a loom, rather the wool is forced through the backing using a tool called a tufting gun. Because of the construction, a hand tufted rug will “shed” significantly more than a knotted rug.
