All IInd Studio rugs are custom and made by hand, using centuries’ old weaving techniques that make each rug one of a kind. We have earned a reputation for being bespoke rug specialists. Our signature designs can be made according to individual wishes; color, size, knot count, shape and materials. Each individual order is carefully studied to create a unique rug that combines a client’s specifications and the distinctive aesthetic of IInd Studio.


The art of handmade rugs can be traced to antiquity. Methods employed today have been pased down through generations of artisans. At IInd Studio, we consistently and faithfully adhere to the traditions passed on to us, whilst encompassing aspects of new technology and design trends in order to produce masterpieces.

We start with creating hand spun yarns for rich textures and colours, the hallmarks of our production. The yarns are dyed in a traditional way to achieve the abrash effect. Dyed yarns are sun dried for several days before the knotting process starts. Making of yarn balls help to prevent tangling during weaving stage. We create a graph, a highly detailed map which the weavers follows knot by knot. The graph can be printed or made by hand depending on the size of the rug. Each rug is then knotted on a vertical loom. The structure is created from horizontal and vertical cotton strands called the warp and weft. Each knot is looped onto the warp and weft around a metal rod. The tools used in the weaving process are scissors, iron-rod levers, comb beater and other primitive tools.Once the rug is off loom, our hand washing methods makes the rugs softer and lively. The washed rug is then sun dried before final finishing and labelling.
