Wool yarn

Then the wool is woven. This spinning process transforms wool. Wraps the fibers together and makes yarn. Wool is woven into yarns ideal for fabric. The vein and deformation are then prepared. When buying a Berber rug, you will always know that the warp is made of 100% natural wool.

Spinning rug

The next part of the rug making process is spinning. This is where you can see the true talents of artisans. Our rugs are woven with a small weft between knots. Why are we doing this? It creates a really dense carpet.

Dyeing and trimming

Before the carpet is completed, the pattern is dyed with natural pigments. They are then cut from the loom and trimmed. The lint is cut using special scissors. This is done to ensure that the stack length is standard in size.

Final steps

During the last spinning months, the original wool becomes dirty. It is also difficult to attach to the loom. This is why carpets are washed and dried again. Wash the rug 2-3 times again to make sure it is smooth. Sometimes we wash them more than 3 times before they are ready for customers. Then here's the last step. We let each Berber carpet dry naturally under warm sunlight.
