'I ordered a bespoke rug at 2.5m x 4.5m. I loved the dact that got the coloured poms to choose the exact colours that we required. We are extremely happy with the quality and design, we will definitely be recommending Rug Couture for any future purchases we will be making'Mercian Regiment
1 MERCIAN, Battalion Headquarters, Picton Barracks.
Rug Couture have made many logo rugs over the years, and for this project our client 'The Mercian Regiment' required a large custom rug size of 250 x 450cm for the Picton Barracks in Wiltshire UK.
The client supplied us with artwork for the design and we speedily dispatched a selection of colour poms and rug quality samples for the client to choose from. Our client chose a total of seven colours for the design, and opted for thin pile hand tufted wool for the rug. Rug Couture made a graph to scale for the design which was emailed over to our client and approved, the rug went into production and when in finishing the text components of the design were carved by hand to ensure they stand out.
