Why is iwantarug.com different to competitors websites?
Most bespoke rug suppliers target their wares to architects and interior designers, let's face it, the average customer is either unaware that this service exists, or believes the prices will be exorbitant. We want to give the ordinary person who is looking for unusual sizes, off the wall colours, odd shapes or something really unique, a chance to create something that stands out from the crowd.
We asked ourselves the question, what do customers really want? Simplicity, choice and innovation at realistic prices? Yes, they want that, but they also want to feel in control of the finished rug too. The mindset, the colour set, that feeling from concept to completion. Because this is a unique piece of handmade carpet we believe it’s so important that our clients feel it’s their creation.
The main difference with iwantarug.com is the client can use the online software to re-colour and resize elements of the rug. The designs can be saved, downloaded and printed. The design app will also give a complete price of the rug delivered to the customer's door.
Our design software is mobile friendly, which means you can colour, style and price on your mobile phone or iPad. The mobile-friendly app also gives busy architects and interior designers the power of suggesting designs and colours to their clients while on site.
What do we offer?
Our main product is a 100% wool hand-tufted rug, available in any size from 60cm x 120cm up to 400cm x 600cm, available in 96 colour options. There is a huge choice of designs which you can colour and innovate to suit any room. Because we are dealing directly with the manufacturers in India, there is no middleman, which makes our bespoke prices and quality comparable to typical high street stores. The quality, finish and square metre price of our custom made rugs are often equivalent to, or better than off the shelf rugs offered by household names such as John Lewis and Debenhams.
By styling many of our colours to blend with popular paint brands such as Farrow & Ball, Fired Earth, The Paint Library, Sanderson, Morris & Co and The Little Greene Paint Company. We are confident that we can match up with the latest innovations in colour and design.
It doesn’t stop there. We also understand that essentially you want to see the colours and touch the quality of your new rug before production. Let’s face it, even with the best online custom design software in the world, it is unlikely that computer-generated colour and texture will simulate the actual rug. To that end, we’ve had colour samples produced in the exact quality of the rugs the client receive. Meaning clients can see the texture and colour, match up with colour charts while getting a true feel of the density of the pile of the rug. What we call taking out the guesswork.
Once the client has sized and produced a colour design online, it can be added to the Iwantarug.com shopping cart. The customer will be asked to pay a nominal fee to order the colour and feeler samples. We’ll post the samples and the design for approval before taking pay and ordering the finished rug.
Once the colours and design are confirmed, we send the patterns to India to be reproduced on the CAD (computer-aided design) software. This produces the production pattern template from which the rug is tufted from. The customer is sent emailed this pattern for final approval. Don’t be scared to tweak?
Tweaks to colour and design are an anticipated part of producing a custom-made rug, we encourage customers to talk to us to ensure we produce the perfect rug. We are happy to create images of the final design.
It’s possible the customer has a design idea of their own, that’s not a problem. Simply send us the design idea and we’ll do our very best to reproduce it. Or maybe the client has a business and is looking to create a rug with the company logo, again we thrive on every challenge. Just send us the logo and an idea of the size and shape of the rug you require.
