Jacaranda’s Himalayan Hand-Knotted Rugs are made by hand in Nepal’s beautiful capital city - Kathmandu.
Each rug is individually created the Tibetan way, by a family owned company which draws on generations of rug making expertise brought with them from Tibet. Both they and Jacaranda are Goodweave registered, as a guarantee of ethical production practices.
This range really does offer you the customer, the opportunity to be as creative as you wish. To really make the most of it, you will need the Jacaranda Himalayan Folder and a Colour Book. Here’s how:
If you like one of the designs shown here, you can ask us to reproduce it to whatever size you wish. You can ask us to change the design slightly, by copying and marking up the ‘plans’ by your chosen design. If you send us drawings of completely new and unique designs, we will reply with CAD drawings. There is a small charge for providing colour poms and woven rug segment samples for customer approval.
Choose colours from these designs, or from the wool and silk swatches in Jacaranda’s Colour Book. These can be applied to your own design or mixed and matched to existing designs by copying and marking up the ‘plans’ which you can download. The numbers on these plans indicate the number and position of colours in each design. For a small ‘matching’ charge, we can colour match to fabrics, paint samples and pantones; supplying colour ‘poms’ for customer approval.
Rugs are knotted from pure Chinese silk and from fine quality wool from the highest plateaux of Tibet. The high lanolin content of this wool increases the lustre of these rugs as they age. You can choose a variety of wool/silk mixes from the samples in our Himalayan Folder. Pure silk motifs woven against pure wool backgrounds are particularly effective and these motifs can be sheared flush with their background, as shown in our Daisy design.
Choose either the velvet or the cut/ loop option from our Himalayan Folder. Choose from 60, 100 or 120 knots per square inch. As the number of knots per square inch rises, the texture becomes finer and the life expectancy of the rug increases. 60 knots per square inch gives a luxurious chunky feel to the rug.
