How we make our rugs

Preparation

The loom is sized and primary backing fabric stretched over it ready for the design which is carefully drawn by hand

Tufting

We use a process in which tufts of wool are punched through a primary backing fabric. Our tufters are trained to reproduce every detail of the design with accuracy.
When the Tufting is complete and checked against the original design a secondary backing fabric is applied to secure the yarn.

Finishing

The rug is now ready for trimming, edging, smoothing or carving, depending on the design, this is followed by a detailed quality check which takes place before the Rugalia Quality Assurance label can be applied.

Yarn Makeup

The Yarn used is spun and dyed in South Africa and is a combination of 80% wool and 20% nylon. This combination provides complete colour fastness, ensures durability and the addition of nylon reduces the natural shedding of the wool yarns.

Pile Types

Cut Pile: Strands of yarn are cut on the surface of the rug.
Loop Pile: Strands of yarn form loops on the surface of the rug.
Plush Pile: Longer strands giving a shaggy appearance.

Pile Heights

Short cut pile: height approx. 1.5cm including backing fabric.
Medium cut pile: height approx. 2.0cm including backing fabric.
Loop Pile: height approx. 2.0cm including backing fabric.
Plush Pile: height approx. 5.0cm including backing fabric.
