The right area rug can warm up and balance a space in the most subdued and natural of ways. For an ultra luxury interior design, a Tibetan custom area rug is the perfect choice. The size, shape and style can be carefully selected to perfectly suit your room.
What is a Tibetan area rug?
Tibetan area rugs are generally hand spun and hand knotted. Thus, each one is unique and original. They may be made from a variety of materials. Though Tibetan wool is quite common, there are also rugs made from bamboo silk, banana silk, Himalayan nettle, and hemp. Some rugs are made from a blend of these fibers. Generally, natural dyes are used to color the fibers.
What choices do you need to make when picking out a Tibetan area rug?
Not all custom rugs are created equal, so you will want to make sure you are buying from a reputable company. Look for rugs that are specifically marketed as “hand knotted” as this means each yarn is individually tied by the weaver.
Keep the knot count in mind when picking out an area rug. High-quality rugs typically have a knot count of between 50 and 100 knots per inch, though some are even higher. The higher the knot count, the more luxurious the carpet.
Pay close attention to overall dimensions when ordering a custom rug. Measure your room and think carefully about the other elements in your ultra luxury interior design to ensure that the rug you choose not only fits, but also makes your decor look balanced and attractive.
