Hand-tufted rugs are crafted using a tufting tool, or tufting gun, to punch the yarn into a fabric backing to hide the glue that is holding the rug together. A stencil canvas is stretched behind so the design can be traced/punched into the rug.
A hand-tufted rug is made partially by hand and a machine and varies greatly from a hand-knotted rug. Hand-tufted rugs have a flat, cut pile surface with a backing added to hold the tufts in place. While hand-tufted rugs are not as durable as those that are hand knotted, they can still last for over 20 years with the proper care.
All of our hand-tufted rugs at Lawrence of La Brea can add character to create the perfect vibe you are looking for!
Bamboo silk is made similar to viscose rugs, with the cellulose extracted from the bamboo being treated with the chemical solution, instead of wood pulp. This process breaks downs the hardened layer to eventually achieve the yarn of fiber. These fibers are light and soft to the touch, yet also offer amazing benefits such as being hypoallergenic and durable.
Because bamboo grows naturally on its own and faster than cotton, it is also considered to be more environmentally friendly. And while bamboo silk feels like silk, it is more sustainable than traditional silk. As with any type of silk fabric, it is important to keep your Lawrence of La Brea area rug away from direct sunlight to prevent fading and discoloration.
Bamboo silk is one of many cost-saving, eco-friendly solutions available to enhance your vision. Whether it’s a statement piece, an accent rug, or a runner, your bamboo silk rug from Lawrence of La Brea is guaranteed to be a hit!
