Selection of Fine Materials

At Gardenia Garden & Home Decor, we believe that the quality of materials used in the weaving process is paramount. Only the finest, locally-sourced natural fibers such as wool, cotton, or silk are carefully chosen for our rugs. These materials not only add durability but also lend a luxurious texture to the final product. Our craftsmen pay meticulous attention to selecting high-quality fibers that will withstand the test of time.

Design and Pattern Creation

Before the weaving process begins, our skilled designers create intricate patterns that are unique to each rug. These patterns draw inspiration from traditional Turkish motifs, allowing us to showcase the distinguished heritage of Turkish folk art. Our team takes pride in meticulously translating these designs onto graph paper, ensuring precision and attention to detail.

Warps and Wefts

Once the pattern is finalized, the weaver prepares the loom by creating strong vertical threads, known as warps. These act as the foundation of the rug. Following this, horizontal threads called wefts are skillfully woven through the warps, forming the structure of the rug. Our weavers pay careful attention to the tension, ensuring an even and tight weave throughout the process.

Hand-Knotting Process

The hand-knotting process is a labor-intensive and time-consuming task that requires immense skill and patience. Using traditional techniques passed down through generations, our artisans meticulously tie knots around the warps, creating the intricate patterns and designs. This meticulous process allows us to achieve extraordinary levels of detail, resulting in rugs that are true masterpieces.

Coloring and Finishing

Once the weaving process is complete, our rugs undergo a meticulous coloring and finishing process. Natural dyes sourced from plants, minerals, and insects are used to achieve vibrant and long-lasting colors. Our artisans carefully apply these dyes, using techniques that have been refined over centuries. After coloring, the rugs are washed, dried, and trimmed to perfection.
