Color Poms For Creating Custom Rugs

People don’t expect a bespoke rug project to be as easy as we make it. We begin with photographs or artwork supplied by the client for the design.

What affects the time it takes to make a custom rug?

Things that affect the weaving time most are:

  • The rug size.
  • Complexity of the design.
  • The number of colors.
  • The quality and how fine the weave is.

*Some other materials may be an option as well. Examples are: linen, sisal, bamboo silk, banana silk, or viscose.

Once the material has been selected, choosing the colors in next

Each color is selected to match the desired colors the client prefers. During the design process, clients can work through the designers or through us.

Some clients prefer to allow the rug weavers to work on their own. This is another option as well.

Selecting The Rug Shape And Size

Customer must choose the shape and size of their custom piece.

Possible options include:

Traditional shapes like square, oval, round, or a runner. That said, we can produce custom shapes as well. Customers can create any out-of-the-box shape or size they wish.

  • 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 to our weavers. This includes the colors and texture.
  • The weavers create a small strike off (around 2 feet by 3 feet). We send it to you to review and approve.
  • One you reviewed the strike off, you may request changes. We send the changes to the weavers. They will then create a second sample based on your feedback.
  • Next you approve the strike off. Then we give the green light to the weavers. They will first curate the materials, dye all the yarns build the loom. Next they will begin to weave your rug.
  • Once the weaving of your rug is complete:
    • The rug will come off the loom.
    • It is then sheared.
    • Then they washed and clean it.
    • Then they take care of all the finishing touches.
  • They ship you newly woven bespoke rug to us. We clear it from customs and receive it.
  • Next we get it to you. You lay your new bespoke rug down in the room and enjoy it.

Creating Large and Custom Made Moroccan Rugs

Shop Our Entire Collection Of Vintage Moroccan Rugs | Berber Carpets and Rugs From Morocco

Are you considering purchasing a vintage Moroccan rug or carpet? Are you having difficulty locating a piece that’s large enough for your space? We get this question a lot. Why? The original rugs from Morocco weren’t woven wider than 6 or 7 feet.

We have developed a method of joining two or more rugs to create large sizes. This is a process that is well-suited to Moroccan rugs.

Create Your Own Unique Custom Made Moroccan Rugs

Moroccan rugs are among the most beautiful and most used type of vintage rug. They lack asymmetry and have unique elements. These folk art rugs are distinct from other styles. That is why customers can create custom size rugs from two or more, separate rugs.

Moroccan rugs are abstract in design (more so in the Beni Ourain rugs). They feature non-repeating patterns of tribal elements and color. This makes them ideal for combining to create one unique rug.

* Vintage Moroccan rugs use brighter colors and abstract patterns. Combining them creates beautiful custom-made rugs. These rugs are perfect for a modern home.

* Bright colors and contrasting patterns mix well in this custom Moroccan rug.

See this example of custom-made Moroccan rugs:

The two vintage rugs pictured below are 3′ 1″ x 6′ 2″ and 3′ 2″ x 7′ 6″. A client selected these two rugs and made one 6′ x 6′ 2″ size in the end. When joining two or more Moroccan rugs, some alterations needed. We do this to create one coherent rug.

You will notice that the longer rug reduced in size a bit. We did this so that the end-product wouldn’t be misshapen and irregular. All the while, the aesthetics of the longer piece remain intact. The result is attributed to careful and professional work.

Modern Nepalese Tiger Rug Samples by Nazmiyal Antique Rugs

Modern Nepalese Tiger Rug Samples

Custom Rug Samples Design Elements

The tiger design has been used for hundreds of years throughout Asia. You see them most in China, Nepal, Tibet, Korea, India and Malaysia. These designs express the elegance of the animal. They show the threat of danger and the symbolism of power, strength and respect.

Tawny browns and light tans blend to show the variations of the tiger’s coat. Pure white contrasts with the black stripes and golden hues of the coat. The fine knotting and short pile simulate the dense, thick, shiny fur. It feels like the sleek look of this kingly cat. The rendering of the stripes creates a minimalist feel. It complements decor ranging from modern to traditional.

Materials and Knotting Of Custom Area Rugs

The quality and type of materials affect the appearance. The type of knotting, knot count and kind of yarn contribute to the beauty and look. Our hand-knotted tiger rugs use age-old techniques with a high knot count. This creates a soft pile that works well here.

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.

Custom Making Your Own Rugs Is Easier Than Ever

5 easy steps to making your very own area rugs with Nazmiyal

As you already know, Nazmiyal Rugs has the ability of custom-making pieces in pretty much any shape, size, color and material. Now, let us explain just how easy it is to make your very own rugs.

The five points you need to know when making your own custom area rugs:

  • Rug Size – Make sure you know the size you want the rug to be. Rug size will also affect the size of the patterns and the overall look and feel.
  • Rug Design / Pattern – Pick an existing rug design or you can create one yourself.
  • Material / Texture – The materials used when making rugs will affect the look and cost of the finished product. Also, flat weave rugs may be more affordable to make than hand knotted pile rugs.
  • Rug Colors – Make sure you establish the colors you want to use for the different elements.
  • Rug Budget- Establish a budget that you feel comfortable investing into this rug project. The budget and amount you can spend on a rug may affect the quality of weave, dyes used and other aspects of production costs.

Lets take a look at these points a bit more carefully.

Do It Yourself – How To Make You Own Custom DIY Rugs

Figuring out the size of rug you want to custom make – the size will affect:

  • The time to create – This is because the bigger the rug, the longer it will take to weave.
  • The cost of the rug – The more time it takes to make, the more money is spent on materials and weavers. The bigger the rug the more it will also end up weighing.
  • The design – The size of the rug will affect large or small the design will end up being. It will also impact how much design can be created.

Selecting the design of the rug you want custom made – the design will affect:

  • The quality of the rug – In handmade rugs, the finer patterns will require more knots per square inch to render.
  • Fine weave rugs with more complex patterns will require more attention to detail when the artist creates the rug cartoon or CAD.
  • Time create – Finer designs will take longer to weave and longer to finetune the samples prior to starting the actual rug weaving part.

*** As a sidenote – DYI rug projects have the ability to free you up to create anything your heart desires. This mean you can recreate your rug based on an existing design, artwork or pattern or can create a totally unique one-of-a-kind- rug based on your very own and unique art work / design.

Selecting the materials for your DYI custom area rug – the materials will affect:

  • The look – This is because different materials have different textures and appearances. Silk rugs, for example, will, for the most part, have more of a sheen that wool rugs.
  • The cost – Some materials cost more. So picking the type of martial will have a substantial impact on how much the rug ends up costing you.
  • The texture – Some textures are easier and quicker to create. For example, flat weave area rugs will usually cost much less to make than knotted pile rugs.
Make Your Own Rugs - Selecting Textures by Nazmiyal Antique Rugs

Make Your Own Rugs – Selecting Textures

Selecting the colors for the custom area rug you are making – colors will affect:

  • The look – Different, even subtle, color tones and shades can have a huge impact on the way the rug looks when it is done.
  • The time – The more colors you use, the more strike-offs might need to be created till all the colors are exactly as you want them to be.
  • The cost – When weaving unique area rugs, we include one or two samples in the cost of the production. If more need to be made then we may need to charge for the extra ones.
Make Your Own Rugs - Selecting Colors by Nazmiyal Antique Rugs

Make Your Own Rugs – Selecting Colors

Make sure you know how much you can spend on your DYI rug project – your budget may affect:

  • The rug quality – Finer rugs will cost more to weave. So the number of rug knots per square inch may need to change to accommodate your budget.
  • The materials – Some materials cost more than others. So your budget may end up affecting which materials are used.
  • The pattern – More complex design patterns will cost more to create. So, the patterns and designs may need to be tweaked based on how much you are willing to spend.
  • The size – Since smaller rugs (of the same quality) take less time to weave they will end up costing less.
  • Texture – Pile rugs might cost more to make than kilim rugs. The two textures will end up creating two very different looks. So this is something that needs to be taken into account.

The Top Questions We Get When People Create Their Own Unique Custom Area Rugs

Can I make my own area rug?

The answer is – of course you can make your very own area rug. That is what custom making rugs is all about – offering people the flexibility of creating the exact rug they want, in the specific colors they chose, in the most ideal size needed and with a design that is only restricted by your own personal imagination.

Can you customize rug sizes?

Of course you can customize the size of your rug. Customizing rugs means that we give you the ability to make any rug you want in any size you wish. This also means that if you see a rug that you love, but want it in a different size, we can recreate it in the size you want.

When having any area rug made, what are the usual associated costs?

The main ones for the dealer will be:

  • Rent – weaving rugs takes space so a large workshop would be needed.
  • Materials – weaving rugs requires materials such as wool, silk, cotton, viscose and so forth.
  • Personal – other than the weavers, dyers and design drafters, the business still needs to factor in the regular costs of doing business. As such, the business will need accountants, physical laborers, tech savvy marking people, secretaries and so forth.
  • Shipping – once the rugs are ready, you will need to ship them to their final destinations and that can cost you more or less based on all kinds of factors.
  • Regular business expenses – like any business, there are always running monthly expenses such as electricity, phones, internet and so forth.

How much do custom made area rugs usually end up costing?

The price of a custom-made carpet will be based on a per square foot price. As a very general rough estimation, your rug will more than likely end up costing anywhere between $50 – $200 per square foot. So a 9 x 12 size rug will end up costing, roughly somewhere between $5,400 and $21,600.

What are the main factors that affect the price of a custom rug?

As noted above, when making your rug, costs will vary based on things like:

  • Size – larger and more unusual rug sizes or shapes may cost a bit more than a regular size rug.
  • Design – the more refined and intricate patterns may require more skill and time to render.
  • Materials – certain materials cost more than others so make sure to take that into consideration when making your rug.
  • Quality – the finer weave that your rug has, the longer it will take weave and thus will cost more.

Is it cheaper to buy or make a rug?

The simple answer is, more often than not, a rug that is already made will cost less than one that needs to be custom designed.

Can you get rugs cut to size?

The simple answer is – yes! If you already own a rug that you love but need to place it in room that might be smaller, you always have the option of cutting it down to make a smaller version of the bigger rug. There are many different ways of doing this and our experts will review all the different options with you prior to doing anything.

Is it worth getting a custom rug?

That depends on you and what you want. While most people are able to find existing rugs they love, others may have a far more difficult time with the process. If you have spent days, weeks or even months looking for that perfect rug with no luck, but you have the time and know what you want, then for you, getting a custom carpet might be the best way forward.

Are handmade rugs more expensive?

Yes. Generally speaking, handmade area rugs will tend to cost more than tufted rugs or machine made rugs.

What do I need to consider when ordering something custom made?

The main things to take into consideration when ordering your own custom rug are:

  • Time – weaving rugs, especially finer and more intricate examples by hand takes time. Also, sometimes things take longer than anticipated so you need to know that the expected delivery date may need to change as the rug gets closer to being finished.
  • Getting it right – since colors and patterns look different on paper or in samples than they do in real life, we suggest making strike-offs first. Once you have those exactly as you want them, the main rug making project can begin.
  • Costs – making your own unique area rug will cost money. But you can lower or increase the cost based on thing like the materials you select, design you want and size you need.

Can a carpet store make an area rug?

The simple answer is – some may be able to while others may not. That said, if you want to make a unique personalized area rug for your self, why not go to an expert, such as us at Nazmiyal, who does this all the time?
