1. What is tufting?
Tufting is a way you make rugs! Rug tufting is basically a kind of traditional textile craft which originated from Iran. But of course, the way we do rug tufting today is very different as we use a tufting gun!
2. How does rug tufting work?
A tufted rug is completed in 3 steps: tufting, gluing, then backing and finishing. In rug tufting you actually do it from the backside of the finished piece. And you will do it with the help of a tufting gun. Through the tufting gun, it’ll feed the yarn through a hollow needle that penetrates the stretched cloth backing for a modifiable length.
3. Is rug tufting hard?
Not at all! Rug tufting is easy to pick up and learn, and quite probably one of the most fulfilling hobbies you could take on today!
4. How do I take care of my rug?
It’s pretty straightforward! Hand brushing or vacuuming twice a week is recommended.
Use an undyed cloth to blot any spilled liquid on your rug, and do it as soon as it spills! Avoid harsh chemicals to remove stains.
Do not place your tufted rug in any damp area. Never soak it in water or dry clean.
