Weave: Hand-tufted

Hand-tufted rugs are made using a handheld tufting gun, which punches strands of yarn through a fabric backing stretched over a frame.

  • The process is faster and less labor-intensive compared to hand-knotting.
  • While skilled artisans still play a role in hand-tufting, it's generally less intricate and time-consuming than hand-knotting.
  • Hand-tufted rugs can be produced more quickly and at a lower cost compared to hand-knotted rugs.
  • The backing of a hand-tufted rug is usually glued or stitched to hold the yarn in place, which can affect its durability over time compared to the more secure knots of a hand-knotted rug.
