When rugs are hand-dyed, a degree of tolerance must be allowed for the matching of colors. We have the capacity to dye 25 yards of fabric per batch, using precise formulas. We will retain the same hue, but the shade may vary slightly. We use 100% new cotton fabric & warp.
All of our rugs are hand-woven and measured to the nearest inch. Due to the nature of hand-woven rugs, we cannot guarantee exact measurements. Please allow for slight discrepancies when ordering.
