“Rugs possess a perpetually focal position in floor fashions as the trend in hard flooring continues. With more individuals choosing hardwood or tiles for their homes, wide expanses of bare floors can make an interior feel cold and unwelcoming. This is where a strategic placement of attractive rugs can come to your help. A rug helps define areas, muffles noise, and provides warmth. While doing all that, rugs also greatly enhance the aesthetics of a room by providing a finishing touch.”
Intricate to Bold
At FLYING CARPETS each and every rug, regardless of color or style, embodies the same virtues of excellence in materials, craftmanship and social responsibility. Handmade with the finest natural material, all of our rugs are destined to become more beautiful with age, so even our newest designs are necessarily timeless.

A BRIEF TOUR ON THE PRODUCTION OF OUR RUGS
A hand-knotted rug is a beautiful form of art passed on from generation to generation. How are hand-knotted rugs made?
1. RAW MATERIAL SELECTION
The wool/silk for our rugs is either personally handpicked by our professionals or imported from the best markets around the world. This assures that you are getting the best quality, highest durability, comfiest feet feel, and a luxurious look that will complete your space.
2. DYEING PROCESS
Traditional vegetable (natural) dyeing is used to give the materials (wool/silk) their beautiful and vibrant colors which are mostly used on our hand-knotted rugss. While synthetic dyes are used for materials used on our machine-made rugs.
3. DESIGNING & WEAVING
This is where the foundation of the carpet is made. Our experienced designers come in, drawing the design on high-quality graph paper and using watercolors for color combinations. It is then translated into 'Talim', a weaver's language. The weavers will then pour their souls into the creation of the rug, thus each hand-knotted rug will have its own characteristics.
4. RAW WASH & SHEARING
This is where the first wash is done to remove the impurities on the carpet. Piles are then cut to level them out.
5. SIDE BINDING & SINGEING
Our rugs are then bound by the same material (wool/silk) used to create the rug for additional strength and durability. It is then flipped over and singed, which is the process of burning fibers that are protruding on the backside of the rug.
6. CLIPPING & FINAL WASH
A final detailing of the rug (clipping) is done to enhance the design and its colors. Then, it undergoes a final wash which takes 4-5 days with a precise step-by-step traditional method to bring out its colors and luster.
7. RUG DRYING & STRETCHING
Our manufacturing factory uses a professional drying machine rather than the Sun. This ensures better temperature and moisture control. Stretching is done right after to straighten the sides.
8. FRINGING & COMPLETION
The final and most important step is the fringing of the rug, they are knotted at the end to ensure durability and prolong use. It is then packed for delivery/export.
Some of the cool facts about Knots
We Got You
Rugs are the finishing touch to your home and workspace. A well-placed rug adds life, beauty, and warmth to the area while bringing everything together. If taken care of, a rug can last for generations. Here are a few simple tips/guidelines to keep your rug in mint condition.
Vacuuming your rugs regularly (minimum twice weekly) would remove any dust/sand/grit buildup. Doing so also restores life to the material (silk/wool) by keeping it volumized.
Note to only use vacuums with the suction or spinning-brush attachments, do not use a beater bar as it would damage the carpet pile and its fringes too.
It is necessary to clean up any spills as quickly and efficiently as possible; this prevents staining, matting, molding, rotting, or mildewing. To do so, blot up as much liquid as possible using paper towels or an absorbent cloth and plain water. Never rub as it can spread the stain and cause pile damage. Never use any type of cleaning agent as it can damage the dyes of the rug.
If the stain has disappeared, do make sure to dry the rug, rug pad, and floor before relaying the rug, but if there is still a stain after blotting the spill area, do contact us for professional carpet cleaning/repairing asap!
Your pet's urine is one of the most damaging compounds to rugs as it could cause rotting and accelerated soiling, the only way to deal with this situation is to contact us immediately to get it professionally cleaned!
Getting an underlay/pad for your rug is essential as it prevents slipping, eliminates wrinkling, provides softer feet feel, and protects the rug as well as the floor underneath at the same time.
Using any kind of underlay/pad is sufficient but for assured quality, do contact us as we carry our exclusive brand of underlay/pads as well.
Rugs, especially hand-knotted rugs, should only be washed by professionals and not by self or dry cleaners. With one mistake your rug's dye could damage, fade or spill. Dry cleaners may use harsher chemicals, detergents, and powders that could damage the dye and leave behind residues that accelerate the soiling of the carpet.
At Flying Carpets we only wash carpets using our tried and true traditional method. We assure a thorough wash, with the ultimate goal of enhancing the rug and returning the softness and colors of the material and dye. It is recommended to get your rug cleaned once every two years.
Rotate your rug regularly (once every 6 months) to minimize traffic wear, if rugs are not rotated regularly, you will start to see wear and tear in the 'high traffic areas.
For major rug damage, it is better to seek our professional consultation. Our restoration services include hole repairing, moth damage, tassel/fringe repairing, flood damage, and more.
