My design is too complex, can you make my design in any size?
We can make any design but size must be equivalent to the complexity of the design. A very complex designs means change of color/material/pile height in short distance. In 1 cm there will be roughly 4 knots in 100 knots rug and if there are 5 different change in 1 cm that cannot be possible. We recommend you to send us your design for evaluation if you think your design is too complex. After evaluation we can provide you a minimum size requirement of your design. If your design is too complex to fit in your required size there are 2 option. Either increase the knots count or crop your design. Increasing the knots count can be sometime useful because higher knots rug have higher density of knots. Our maximum knot count is 200 knots per square inch, if you design cannot be made in 200 Knots the option left is to increase a rug size or crop a design.
