The dictionary meaning of "Tuft" means "A bunch or collection of threads, held together at the base." And Tufting means "To strengthen by passing a cluster of threads through the material, so making depressions at regular intervals."

So basically, Hand-Tufted carpets are made by punching or shooting woolen strands into a canvas using a hand-operated tufting gun which is a kind of sophisticated needle, and the canvas, in turn, is stretched on a frame. The rug is removed from the frame after the pile is created and then we safeguard the carpet using a heavy-duty lining at the back.

Hand Tufted carpets are made using an entirely different process than Hand-knotted carpets, as many of us might think that both are kind of same. Let's know the differences between both techniques.

what does hand tufted rug mean


A very common query we receive as under :

1.         what does hand-tufted rug mean or
2.         what is tufted carpet

Very plain sense this means that: Hand-tufted is a process of weaving rugs and carpets in a particular pattern, where you tuft the yarn with the help of gun. The process starts with the canvas cloth on which the design layout is printed and with the help of the gun, the yarn is inserted as per the colours specified in the map.

Once the yarn is inserted on canvas cloth, or say when the weaving is over, after close inspection that the colours have been placed right or not, a paste popularly named as latex is done on the back of the rug, so that the yarn which is tufted on canvas cloth gets locked, and doesn’t comes out. To make the rug more strength and look good a backing canvas is then pasted.
