Your Bespoke Rug – Getting Started

Although bespoke rugs can be created from any artwork you provide, you don’t need to be a professional designer to have a rug made with us. We can work with any ideas you have to help you achieve your desired aesthetic.
If you’re unsure of where to start, try the following

  • Consider the existing elements of your room such as patterns and colours from fabrics and accessories.
  • Browse our website to discover existing designs that can be used for inspiration or even adjusted to meet your needs
  • Draw on other creative sources to find a design or colour that brings you joy. It can be anything from a print on a favourite item of clothing to a cutting of decorative paper

Alternatively, just take a photograph of your room. As a specialist bespoke rug company, we can do all the work for you.
Almost any design can be turned into a rug, but as our rugs are made entirely by hand, we have to simplify very complex designs to make them ‘weavable’. Your design will not just be printed onto a rug! When thinking about your rug design please bare in mind there will be a premium to pay if it contains more than 10 colours, and very fine detail can only be achieved with a very high knot counts which comes at a higher price.
IMPORTANT: Remember to measure your room- sizing is paramount and you won’t be charged extra for a bespoke size*

Adjusting a Bazaar Velvet Rug Design

Any Bazaar Velvet Design can be made to order in bespoke sizes, but for maximum flexibility choose one from our Core Collection.
Core Collection Rugs can be adjusted in the following ways:

  • By Colour- over 2000 colours to choose from
  • By Size– any custom size available at no additional cost
  • By Shape– any shape including round, or with simple cut outs or curves
  • By Design– we can change scale, add border or make any other adjustments
  • By Material – we offer a wide range of materials including wool, silk, cashmere, cotton, hemp and bamboo which can be combines to meet your design vision or budget needs.
  • By Construction– a hand knotted rug can be made in various densities depending on the design. Higher knot counts achieve more details whilst lower knot counts reduce the price. We can also create simple designs in a hand tufted quality, giving a lower price point and shorter lead time

We also have a wide range of designs in our archive for which the same rules apply. These can be emailed to you on request.

At Bazaar Velvet we are passionate about creating rugs using the traditional method of hand knotting. Having your rug made in this way will allow for more detail and more texture and material options than a hand tufted rug. The Hand Knotting process is completed by dozens of skilled artisans using a technique that has remained unchanged for over a century. This gives every rug a unique character and a level of robustness unsurpassed by any other making method.
This means your perfect bespoke rug will resist the wear and tear of everyday life and will not be ruined by one accidental spillage. It can be easily spot cleaned at home and be refreshed every few years by a professional rug cleaning service. If cared for properly your bespoke hand knotted rug can last a lifetime.
