The Process to Create Unique and Desirable Custom Made Bespoke Rugs
Handmade rugs with uniquely inspired patterns and designs can complement a home better than any generic and bland commercial pattern. However, another way you can take it up a level, is by creating your own, unique, custom bespoke rugs. Custom designed by you, with the exact colors you want, in the perfect size for your room, custom made rugs are the epitome of personal and artistic expression.
While many people can, and even enjoy, creating their own unique custom rugs, a talented rug designer can help. Our custom rug designers can collaborate with the client and help to create a custom rug that meets all the needs of the rug owner as well as interior decorator. In addition to rug colors and patterns, bespoke rugs are also adaptable in rug size and shape. That is because the rug will be woven specifically for you, and will fit perfectly in the specific environment you designed it for.
Uses of Bespoke Rugs
Clients often wonder if it is worth the time, effort and expense to design their own unique bespoke rug. From a decorating standpoint, many interior design professionals, prefer doing a custom rug because it is the quickest way to ensure you get the correct size and color. In addition, creating your very unique own one of a kind rug will ensure that your interior design is completely personal. 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. Studios, design firms, the hotel / hospitality industry, and even salons can benefit from the addition of a custom designed rug. 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
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.
Now You Can Be A Custom Rug Designer
One of the most beautiful forms of art in the world is a masterfully designed carpet. This is also one of the most impactful aspects of your home decor and will dictate a lot of what is going to work in your interior design. Going back centuries, people have designed and woven stunning textiles to decorate palaces, temples and homes. Hundreds of years ago, artists would have to train for years and years to create and custom design the perfect rug.
But with current technology, and a guiding hand, now even you can design your very own unique, one-of-a-kind custom rug with the exact specifications needed to make it work. In just a few steps, now you too can be your own custom bespoke rug designer.

The Process Of Custom Making Rugs:
Below is a general outline of the steps that we will take as we embark on our quest for creating your custom rug:
- 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.

* Colorful lines in this Moroccan rug match the colored checkers of the other rug.
