Moroccan Rug Tufting
Carpets/rugs in North Africa and persian cultures, are often hand knotted or thread knitted. With the appearance of new technologies such as the tufting gun, traditional crafts and modern technology was melded to simplify the carpet/rug making process. The tufting gun punches thread by thread onto the fabric to create your personal design.
During the workshop, you can freely created your one and only design. (It is not limited to traditional/cultural designs. You can choose cartoon characters, your pet, words, or symbols, or other designs. If you are unsure, you can always discuss with us and we can suggest ideas for you.)
FInished products include carpets, ornaments, mirrors, coasters, chair cushions, etc.
