You'll notice this kind of rug construction is often produced in stunning geometrics, sleek stripes or a combination of both. Comparatively straightforward to make, cotton handloom rugs offer a richness of colour in a durable natural fibre. Woven on a vertical loom with the support of a mounted cotton yarn wrap, the weaving process continues in horizontal lines, with knots being wrapped around the cotton support and secured. Cotton holds dyes well, presenting effective, simple designs with dimension and depth. The resulting texture is further enhanced with clever blocked styling, braided edges and features such as tasseled ends.
