The creation of our carpets
Classic Collection's carpet production takes place in Northern India, other countries that have a large production of carpets is Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Nepal and China. Regardless of the country, the production process to make carpets is about the same. Of course, it starts with the breeding of sheep. In order to make a carpet out of the wool, you then need to cut, wash, sort, comb, spin and possibly dye the wool. Depending on the type of carpet you want to create, the wool needs to dry and be stored in different ways. To begin the creation of the carpet, the wool should then be constructed firmly in a knot loom. Knot looms for the manufacture of carpets look different depending on the region. They can be made of wood or metal, and be used either vertically or horizontally.
Now the new carpet is well on its way to life, in the hands of skilled craftsmen who for generations have done nothing but make carpets. Patterns are designed and drawn. Nowadays, most patterns evolve according to the trends of the Western world, but many carpets are still made based on the traditional patterns that have existed for centuries. Textile fabric, wasp and weft, consists mostly of wool, cotton or silk yarn. After the rug is tied in the knot loom based on a predetermined pattern, it is cut out from the knot frame, and so the ends and sides are ready.
This is followed by cutting, washing, stretching and drying the carpet. For some carpets, "sculpting" of the carpet is also required, this means that the pattern is "lifted out" with the help of scissors. All Classic Collection carpets undergo thorough inspections before the carpets are passed on to us in Sweden. The carpets are handmade and unique in their kind, no other identical specimen exists.
We are deeply convinced that each carpet, tells a unique story. A story of skilled craftsmanship from the other side of the world, an object that breathes generations of dexterity and is found in every rug we sell at classic collection.
