Every rug design in the collection has a provenance, researched from our archives which are hand woven in 100% organic silk onto a cotton yarn to a bespoke size by highly skilled weavers using knowledge passed on through generations. Very few traditional weaving families with the required knowledge and skill remain, meaning sourcing rugs of this quality can be extremely difficult and for the majority, not viable. However, we believe in supporting the traditions and making the additional effort to present unrivalled products to our clients.
The families have been personally visited by Brights of Nettlebed's Chairman and Director, Robert and Henry Stamp to ensure the quality of materials and manufacture, appropriate human rights are adhered to, and that the community is supported. Our direct relationship with the weavers also enables us to instruct special commissions meaning bespoke rugs can be designed and made to any size on request. At the quality we instruct, it takes one weaver approximately 5 weeks to hand knot one square meter. We also offer a Persian Rug Cleaning Service.
Brights of Nettlebed are members of the Care & Fair initiative, financially supporting education and health for carpet knotting families in India, Nepal and Pakistan. For more information please visit www.care-fair.org
