Our Soumak rugs are hand knotted to be of exquisitely high quality, and will add a touch of traditional, colorful beauty to any room in the house where you need a strong, durable but elegant rug.
The Soumak Rug Weaving Technique
To create our top standard Soumak rugs, our skilled rug weavers hand wrap colored weft threads over and under warp threads, which run at 90 degrees to each other. The combined effect is an embroidered, colorful design of flat weaves that are extremely durable and strong under foot.
Due to the fact that many different tones of weft threads can be used on one single rug, this means a skilled rug weaver can create intricate patterns and dense weaves with multiple knots per square inch - rendering the finished rug a true work of art.
The ultimate in craftsmanship, beauty and practicality – a professionally hand knotted Soumak rug will last for generations and represents an investment of ‘family heirloom’ status.
Highest Quality Soumak Rugs
Located in the heart of the rug making center of Pakistan, our highly skilled rug weavers have been hand-knotting rugs for generations. We have close ties with these traditional carpet making communities, and we work hard to not only treat our artisans exceptionally – but also work with local charities to help improve the lives of people across the whole region.
That’s why when you choose a luxury Soumak rug from our collection, you’re not buying any old rug such as those sold by our ‘machine made’ competitors – you’re investing in a lovingly crafted hand knotted product that an entire community takes pride in.
