People and Communities

Nurturing the tradition of handmade rugs

Rug weaving has a rich history with craftmanship that has been passed down through generations. This is kept alive, in part by the skilled men and women who make IKEA rugs at weaving centres approved by us. Here, we can secure the well-being of the artisans and their communities as well as the resources we use. So, when you buy one of our handmade rugs, you become owner of a unique piece, while also contributing to positive change for the people who make them.

Form/Design process

Made using the pit loom weaving technique

The pit loom, as the name suggests, is positioned over a pit, and the wooden frame is angled for vertical weaving. The artisan sits underneath the frame, and controls it with foot pedals and their hands, crafting rugs with intricate patterns and designs. This setup enables working from both above and below the frame, achieving a very tight weave. Producing a rug with this technique takes about 2-3 days, resulting in a work of art that can add character to any home.

Material

What is wool?

Wool is a practical natural material that usually comes from sheep. The raw wool is washed and then spun into yarn. Wool rugs have many advantages. They're soft, warm and comfortable to walk on, and they're also very hardwearing. They're stain-resistant too, because wool has it own natural oil. This means that dirt stays on the surface and doesn't penetrate into the rug. All wool rugs shed - some more, some less - vacuum them regularly to prevent the loose fibres from scattering.
