Process of Making a Hand Tufted carpet
There are six-step for making a Hand Tufted carpet
In a metal frame, a large cotton cloth or canvas is tightly stretched and pined. On all four sides, the frame has a series of needle tooth-like. On the frame, a tight canvas helps tufting easier and makes clear-cut designs.
Beforehand tufting, the desired design is drawn on a large transparent paper. The paper looks like butter paper. With tiny holes, the designs on the paper are carefully pierced. Then placed on the canvas. A cloth is then immersed in blue ink and polished on the paper. By doing this the design carries from the paper onto the canvas.
Now initiates the creation of the carpet. Dyed color wool/silk is set in the knitting tool called a tufting gun. A tufting gun is a tool that works with human hands. This tool makes production less inexpensive and labor-intensive. Loops of wool appear at the canvas backing after the wool is shot through the canvas. This picture forms the foundation of the carpet. Carry the process with ease, the blue ink lines on the canvas guide the weavers.
After encompassing the whole design, the canvas is then detached from the frame and sent for a wash. Washing brings more polish and shines to the carpet.
In this step, we add the protecting layer to the looped canvas. It secures the pile from getting apart from the carpet. Without two latex layering, An hand tufted rug is never complete.
A layer of rubber grid called a scrim is now applied. And then a layer of latex glue is again applied on top. The glue will help the wool and the canvas to stick together.
