What is Tufting?
Tufting is the process of passing a group of threads (or a “tuft”) through a primary base material to create a rug-like texture. Typically used to make rugs, its uses are only limited to your imagination. Other common uses include crafting pillows, art pieces, and clothing. Tufting is a great way to make your own rug that’s truly one-of-a-kind and just what you want!
How Does Tufting Work?
Tufting machines work by using a mechanical needle to push the yarn through a tufting cloth. Once through, the machine either cuts the yarn or leaves it in a loop. The result is two different finishing styles — cut and loop pile. These two finishing techniques can alter the look and feel of the rug, so it’s best to consult a professional for advice on which would be best when making your own rug!
There are countless design options when tufting a rug. Your handmade tufted rug can be any size or shape you’d like, ranging from cute pigs to traditional area rugs, with a variety of colors and patterns to choose from. The flexibility for tufted rugs is a great benefit when it comes to handmade rugs or gifts.
