FROM ART TO RUG

It is essential to wash a rug after it is woven for various reasons. One is to ensure that the dyes have truly bound to the yarn and is colour fast. Another is to wash out any dust or dirt that may have become knotted in with the yarn when making the rug. Once washed, the rug is stretched out, by being stitched onto a metal frame, as the washing process causes shrinkage and this usually takes 3 to 5 days.
