Color Samples

 

Below is a small sampling of what to expect when working with a Custom Design Studio in creating your own oriental rug or Persian Carpet.  The examples used within were supplied by Ancient Weave located in Manhattan, NYC.  Please also see additional information if you choose to work independent of a design studio or importer.  We highly recommend you work with a reputable importer to conduct proper renditions and full execution of your chosen project.

 

Step 1: Begin with Line Art of the chosen design or custom creation:

Design Sample Line Art Shadow Rug

 

Step 2: Choose colors you wish to have included in your custom carpet.  These will often coordinate with a color blanket or wool tuft samples.  Everything will be sent off to the weaver in the form of a "strike-off."  A strike-off is a small sample often in the same proportions and scale of a center area or corner of the rug.  Size is usually 2'x3'.

Strike Off Using Color blanket

Step 3:

Your custom strike off will arrive.  Depending on where the rug is commissioned, and who the rug is commissioned with, and the quality to be executed in, expect your strike-off sample to take anywhere from 2 to 8 weeks. Changes and additional rounds of strike offs will often be an option, however often the consumer will be responsible for costs associated with each strike off.  These may or may not be refunded if the full scale rug is ordered.
