Shuttleworth Weaving is a family business which creates bespoke and a standard range of, hand-crafted carpets and rugs. We do all the spinning, weaving and dyeing by hand. Our thorough and professional approach to the design and hand-weaving processes appeals to clients both locally and internationally.
The majority of our carpets and rugs are made from the best natural materials available to us (eg: South African mohair and Namibian Karakul wool). In addition, we work with jute and polypropylene.
Over the years, we have created original designs, weaves, and techniques. We are always experimenting with new weaves and mixing the different fibres for exciting effects and to create a range of textures.
We dye the materials onsite, creating beautiful colours and colour effects. We can match just about any colour required for custom pieces. We can create large-format custom rugs of up to nine metres wide.
We create unique and beautiful handwoven rugs.
Fine Weave Wool: This is a neat, tightly woven and durable carpet. Each carpet is designed then the yarn hand-dyed, spun and woven.
Tenfour Wool: This is a rug handwoven from two thicknesses of New Zealand carpet wool which creates even textured ridges and colour contrast. The use of only two colours creates a subtle, modern architectural look.
Karakul Wool & Jute: This rug is made from Namibian Karakul wool and just a little jute in order to create an even texture. The yarn is handspun.
