Barkley Rug - 8'3" x 11'6"
The contemporary Barkley Rug is hand-tufted in exquisite pure wool (90%) and cotton (10%). The pattern for a tufted rug is made to full scale and then traced onto the backing fabric. The fabric is then stretched onto a metal frame and is the base for the tufting. The rug is tufted from the back, onto the front, using a hand tufting gun. It works either as a needle, making loops on the front or as a blade, producing a cut pile. Barkley is finished with a high quality backing cloth which makes up the underside of the rug. This rug has lots of varying textures (see detail views) and is sure to be an eye-catching centerpice in any room. All sewing of edges, pile work and embossing is done by hand. Crafted in India; pile height is 0.5".
