Each of our rug goes through an extensive process of dying fibers, plying, warping, weaving, washing and finishing. It takes sometime couple of months to more than 6 months to make a single rug based on the complexity of the design and size. Woven over the course of this long period, they are made not only sturdy and durable but also lightweight.
