Claire Gaudion rugs are created and made in collaboration with Momo Rugs. Every rug is handmade by Care & Fair certified makers. It is important to us that our rugs are responsibly made and that they are made using quality fibres. Most of our rugs are made from New Zealand wool. We also present a collection of recycled rugs, made from 100% recycled plastic.
Handmade rugs can be crafted in a number of ways. Our collection includes hand tufted, hand knotted and flat weave rugs.
The traditional highly skilled technique of hand knotting makes heirloom quality rugs. This skilled weaving process requires many hours to make each rug, and many thousands of knots. Tufted rugs are made using a modern tufting tool. The rug maker uses this tool to attach yarn tufts to a backing cloth.Flat weave rugs are handwoven on traditional shuttle looms, interlacing warp and weft yarns. This style of hand loom weaving creates a textured rug surface and often a patterned weave structure.
