Custom rug designs enable people to express who they are and show off their artistic flair to the world.
Bespoke rugs become especially important in some interiors, where the style and personality of the individual must stay on display.

People that take the time to have a unique rug made for their home or business will also show an attention to detail that many other designs may not have.
Process for Custom Rug Creation
As mentioned above, creating custom area rugs is easy and fun and while Nazmiyal is located in NYC, if you don’t have to stop by our Manhattan showroom to work with on creating your perfect, unique or preproduction custom made rug. The project of creating a unique one of a kind bespoke custom rug begins with a design template. You are free to come up with your own unique custom patterns or you can use a basic pre-made in stock rug. The style of the design can range in its look and feel from a very traditional type of rug to something much more modern and anything in between – the sky is limit.
Every step along the way involves careful review and inspection by the Nazmiyal team to ensure that the material and the workmanship is the best offered in the industry. Each project is a unique design, so the length of time to complete the work varies. Things like the size, complexity of the design, number of colors, and the quality will affect how long it takes to weave a custom-made rug.
Many customers may not expect a custom rug project to be as easy as we make it.
The process begins with photographs, artwork or other inspirational items supplied by the client for the design. Next, the material is selected and for the most part, the bespoke rugs will either be wool rugs, silk rugs or a combination of both silk and wool rugs. Some other materials that may be an option (depending the project) are linen, sisal, bamboo silk, banana silk, or viscose.
Once the material has been selected, color selection for the threads begins. Each color is carefully selected to match the inspirational colors the client prefers. The client can choose to work directly with the designers or with us directly through each step of the design process. Some clients actually prefer to allow the rug weavers to work on their own which is also an option.
In addition to the colors and the pattern, the customer must also choose the shape of their custom rug. Possible options include traditional shapes like square, oval, round, or a runner, as well as many others. We also produce custom shapes for any customer that can offer a printed or drawn representation of what they need.

- We start by brain storming and talking over the specific needs and wants.
- We settle on a specific design.
- We pick the specific colors and texture.
- We create a Photoshop rendering to give a main idea of the look.
- Once approved, we send the rendering along with the colors and texture to our weavers.
- The weavers create a small strike off (usually 2 feet by 3 feet) for you to review and approve.
- If any changes are requested after reviewing the strike off, we will send those to the weavers to create a second one based on your feedback.
- Once the strike off is approved, we give the green light to the weavers who will curate the materials, dye all the yarns build the loom and begin to weave the rug.
- Once the weaving of your custom rug is done, the rug will come off the loom to be sheared, washed and take care of all the finishing touches.
- Next, your newly woven bespoke rug is shipped to us and we will clear it from customs and receive it.
- Now all the is left is to lay your new custom rug down in the room and enjoy.

Creating Large and Custom Made Moroccan Rugs
Are you considering purchasing a vintage Moroccan rug or carpet? Do you find that you are having difficulty locating a piece that’s large enough for your space? This may be the case because original vintage rugs from Morocco were never woven wider than 6 or 7 feet. However, the Nazmiyal Collection has successfully developed a method of joining together two or more rugs to create large size Moroccan rugs – a process that is especially well-suited to Moroccan rugs.
Create Your Very Own Unique Custom Made Moroccan Rugs
Custom Moroccan Rugs – Moroccan rugs are among the most beautiful and most widely used type of vintage rug. Because of the asymmetry and unique elements of design that make these folk art rugs so distinct from other styles, customers have the unique option of creating custom size rugs from two or more, totally separate, Moroccan rugs.
Generally, Moroccan rugs (especially the Beni Ourain rugs) are characterized by abstract, non-repeating patterns of tribal elements and color. This makes them ideal for joining together to create one completely unique custom made rug.
* Vintage Moroccan rugs use brighter colors and abstract patterns, combining them creates beautiful custom made rugs perfect for a modern contemporary home.
* Bright colors and contrasting patterns mix well together in this custom made modern Moroccan rug.
See this example of custom made Moroccan rugs:
For example, the two vintage rugs pictured below (one 3′ 1″ x 6′ 2″ and the other 3′ 2″ x 7′ 6″) were chosen by a client to be joined together into one large rug (sized 6′ x 6′ 2″ in the end). As you can see, when joining together two or more Moroccan rugs to create a custom-size piece, the appropriate alterations are made to create one attractive, coherent rug.
You will notice that the longer of the two rugs used in the construction of this custom size rug had to be slightly cut down so that the end-product wouldn’t be misshapen and irregular. However, the aesthetics of the longer piece remain intact even after being altered, a result of extremely careful professional work.
* Colorful lines in this Moroccan rug match the colored checkers of the other rug.
More Custom Made Moroccan Rugs:
For example, the two Moroccan rugs pictured below (one 3′ 10″ x 3′ 10″ and the other 4′ 3″ x 6′ 2″) were chosen by a client to be joined together to create one large, custom made Moroccan runner rug (sized 3′ 10″ x 10′ in the end).
The end result is something totally distinctive that also incorporates the very finest elements of both pieces. These two colorful rugs, which were beautiful on their own, come together to make something that is greater than the sum of its parts.

As part of the process of creating custom rugs, we will create strike offs and samples for you to approve prior to going forward with weaving the full rug. We create the rug samples so clients could get a much better feel for the texture, colors and pattern of the custom rug. The samples we create are usually about 2′ x 3′ feet (0.61 m x 0.91 m) and will represent a section of the rug. We can tweak the colors, patterns, textures and materials till we reach a point where the client is 100% happy with everything before we move forward with the actual rug.
Modern Nepalese Custom Made Tiger Area Rug Samples
If you are looking for a unique, high-quality area rug that combines ancient weaving traditions, fine threads and vibrant, modern designs, have a look at our new, customizable tiger rugs. We are pleased to offer these hand-knotted rugs in three different types of yarn: pure highland wool, pure silk and combinations of wool and silk. In addition, these carpets can be customized to suit your design needs. They can be made in any size, color and combination of yarns, and the pattern can be modified to your liking. Here, we show samples of each material type with the same overall design to highlight how each rug takes on a different look because of the yarns used in the weaving.
Whether you want a full-sized carpet, an area rug or something in between, we can customize the size to your need. In addition, the colors can be modified to suit your interior design scheme. You can go for bold, contrasting colors, muted shades or whimsical combinations that work with your palette. The staff at Nazmiyal can help you select materials, calculate the size and modify colors to create a unique, one-of-a-kind carpet.
Custom Rug Samples Design Elements
The tiger design has been used for hundreds of years throughout Asia, particularly China, Nepal, Tibet, Korea, India and Malaysia. Through interactions with Asia, Europe incorporated the tiger motif into its art, often using it on coats of arms and as mascots. These designs express the elegance of the animal, the threat of danger and the symbolism of power, strength and respect.
In our new creation, the artist portrays the beauty and strength of the tiger through simple lines and subtle combinations of colors. In the samples shown, bold, black lines create stripes, eyes and facial features. Tawny browns and light tans are blended to show the variations of the tiger’s coat. Pure white contrasts with the black stripes and golden hues of the coat to delineate facial markings. The fine knotting and short pile simulate the dense, thick, shiny fur that characterizes the sleek look of this kingly cat. The rendering of the stripes creates a minimalist feel that complements décor ranging from modern to traditional.
Materials and Knotting Of Custom Area Rugs
The quality and type of materials in a handcrafted carpet affect its appearance. The type of knotting, knot count and kind of yarn contribute to a carpet’s beauty and look. Our hand-knotted tiger rugs are woven using age-old techniques with a high knot count, creating a soft pile that works so well in this representation. Although higher knot counts are often associated with quality, the type of yarn, pattern and type of knot affect the count. Many high-quality carpets have lower knot counts for these reasons.
Nepalese wool is some of the finest in the world. Sheep raised at high altitudes in the Himalayas give a thick, resilient, lanolin-rich wool. The wool is hand-spun and dyed using plant-based dyes. Hand-spun wool has more variation in strand thickness, which affects how it absorbs dyes. This creates subtle variations of color in response to light. Because wool yarn is thicker than silk, wool rugs often have a lower knot count than silk carpets. The use of 100% wool gives a dense, slightly coarse look. Wool is washable, durable and holds color well when properly cared for.
Silk rugs are the most luxurious rugs in the world. Silk yarns are thinner than wool, allowing a finer weave. Silk also absorbs dyes more evenly, creating a rich sheen and luminous pile. These qualities give an elegant look to these Nepal rugs, highlighting the shine and thick nap that emulate the texture of a tiger’s coat. Combining wool and silk creates a beautiful gloss and accentuates the subtle variations in pile thickness and texture. The combination of silk and wool captures the sleek look of silk and the realistic look of a woolly coat of fur.
Nepalese rug weavers have adapted their weaving traditions to create modern designs that suit contemporary styles. Nazmiyal Collection is proud to offer this rug in a minimalist tiger motif in wool, silk and a combination of silk and wool. Please contact us to ask about customizing this delightful tiger rug to your design specifications.
