All designs are by Vanderhurd in house designers with Christine Van Der Hurd leading the team as Creative Director. The design process is research-oriented, including drawing and sampling material studies in collaboration with the weavers to achieve specific quality, construction and colour.
All colours are dyed to order in house on our weaving campus. We dye to any colour and material through our bespoke services, using natural dyes when applicable. Each yarn takes to the dye differently allowing or clients to play with the depth of colour and texture.
Every product is hand woven on hand built looms using all natural materials. Over the years we have developed a variety of unique techniques and constructions with our weaver partners, some of which are so intricate that only one to two inches can be woven a day.
The craft of washing plays an important role in the creation of each rug. The colour can be adjusted and texture can be detailed depending on the wash. All of our rugs and flat weaves are hand washed with mild soap and water, and dried in the Indian sun.
Vanderhurd has a longstanding relationship with the best carpet installers and carpet craftsmen available. Our team install from the simple - placing a rug - to the complicated – fitting complex stair runners, bindings, etc.
