Traditional wool meets modern design- what could be better? These Ikat rugs are the perfect recommendation for people who are want an area rug that will stand out, but not steal the show away from the room. The process of making a RugKnots Ikat rug starts in Pakistan with our expert artisans. First they bundle our all-natural New Zealand Wool together and dip dye it to create the blurred effects. Next, once the wool has dried, the weavers began to hand knot the wool onto an Ikat canvas, which is made of cotton. After weeks of delicate and precise knotting, the ikat rugs become an artwork of effortless Ikat patterns that no machine could ever duplicate.

Can I use a wool rug like this in my dining room?
Yes! A lot of people think that they have to put hand tufted rugs in their dining room because they are somewhat easier to clean. However, wool rugs will hide dirt better for when there are tiny particles- which is great because vacuuming under a heavy dining room table can be difficult to do!
