Each rug is handmade for their customers in an ages old technique that has been passed on to the creative artisans of today. Homefires employs the use of various fibers and techniques to create just the right look for their many beautiful designs. Although most of their rugs are made from wool yarn, customers will also find some rugs made in cotton yarn and others in acrylic yarn. The choice of fiber is dictated by Homefires' desire to achieve a particular color tone, clarity, or intensity. Cotton allows Homefires to achieve a very clean soft tone. Wool provides a rich warm tone, and acrylic fibers can be dyed to create the most vivid of colors. The different techniques used include hooked, tufted, and a combination of hooking and tufting called Hi/Lo. Hi/Lo rugs are those that are a combination of tufting and hooking where the tufted part of the fibers are left measurably longer than the hooked part. The Cut/Loop technique is also a combination of hooking and tufting, but in this technique the tufted part of the rug is cut much closer to the height of the hooked area. In all cases, the design of the rug influences the technique that Homefires chooses.
Carol from Dewey, AZ– Verified Buyer
We ordered three of these rugs for our large entrance hall because of the vibrant colors and pattern. They do appear exactly as shown in the photos, they are beautiful! My only complaint is that they are not at all cushy to walk on, they are very stiff with no give under foot. We have only had them for two weeks, so I am not yet sure of their durability.
