HAND-TUFTED AREA RUGS
Hand Tufted - hospitality Area Rugs
Custom Area Rugs | Custom Wall-to-Wall Carpets
Royal American’s Hand-Tufted Area Rugs are developed and produced for luxurious interior settings for both the hospitality and commercial markets. Our hand-tufted method offers limitless capabilities in terms of design, texture, colors, and sizes. We primarily use the hand-tufted method of construction to create loose-laid area rugs, but can also create wall-to-wall carpet as well. Most of our finished products contain wool or nylon, but there are a variety of other materials to choose from. Examples of these materials are Silk, Bamboo Silk, Viscose, and Solution Dyed Nylon.
The process of hand-tufted production involves a hand operated tool known as a "tufting gun", which punches strands of fiber into a canvas stretched on a frame. Our highly skilled staff stencils in the design onto the canvas and carefully fills the design and pattern with the selected yarns and colors using the tufting gun. After completion, the rug is taken off of the frame and is ready for the application of a secondary backing. Finally, the custom hand-tufted product is finished with by adding a scrim backing to hold the fibers and edges in place. This production process happens to be very similar to machine-tufted carpet. However, since entirely created by hand, there are far fewer restrictions. We can produce large custom widths, custom pile heights, create texture effects such as carving, and most importantly, the design & color combinations are endless.
Royal American's Hand-Tufted Carpets are best suited for luxurious settings, often specified by designers, architects, and end-users to add beauty and brilliance to floors. This type of construction is ideal for Hotel Lobbies & Guest Suites, Condominium Public Space, Corporate Office Lobbies, Country Clubs, Yachts, Theaters and more. Depending on the project scope and budget, we can modify the densities and pile heights for the appropriate setting. The hand-tufted method is a wonderful alternative to hand-knotted rugs because of the combination of durability and affordability.
