How We Work
GOOD QUESTION! Is it related to a tuft of grass? You're not wrong. Tuft (according to the dictionary) refers to a number of short pieces of something, such as grass, hair etc. that grow closely together or held together at the base. Tufting hence is a type of textile weaving in which thread/yarn is inserted into its primary base.
We'll take you on a journey to revisit this traditional craft form now coupled with modern technology to make the process faster with something we call a 'Tufting Gun'.
Thorough instruction will be given covering the basics of how to use a tufting machine, and how to glue and finish the tufted piece.
After the instruction you can try on our practice frame and get ready. At the meantime we will project the image from your phone to your tufting frame .
Draw the outline of your image.
After the drawing you can start Tufting. And don't be nervous, we are here to help. We only charge the time of drawing and tufting (70/hr).
60x60 frame takes 1-3 hours
90x90 frame takes 3-5 hours
140x85 frame takes 3-6 hours
Put the glue on and cut the rug out.
The final icing of the cake is the backing fabric is as important as the tufting
