Custom Rug Ordering Information 

Custom rugs are fabricated in China and require 4-5 months lead time. All custom rug orders require an official  purchase order by the retailed prior to production commencing. Rama Carpets reserve the right to request a 50% deposit prior to production of all custom rug orders. Orders cannot be subject to change or cancellation once in production. Minimum rug size for custom fabrication is 5’x8’ (40sf). Maximum rug size is equal to the width of the field material plus two sides of border. We do not offer field seams or double borders. Pattern match at metered corners and centring of pattern are not guaranteed.

Notable Characteristics

Dye Lots: Due to slight variation from dye lot to dye lot, an exact match to samples cannot be guaranteed.
Shedding or Fluffing: this is a natural characteristic of all wool or wool blend pile carpets. Loose bits of natural fibre can appear on the carpet surface and can be removed with gentle vacuuming. Improper maintenance, dragging objects, or overly aggressive vacuum methods can distort pile and cause excess shedding. Shading or Watermarking: All cut pile carpets and some loop pile carpets are characterised by highlighting or shading, sometimes called “watermarking”. This is not a manufacturing defect, but simply a result of pile direction. Purchasers of fine carpets, especially cut pile should be aware of this.
Woven Characteristics: Our products are woven with high quality natural fibres. As with all woven products and natural fibres, there are certain variances in surface texture, yarn consistency, etc... Those sometimes cause the appearance of striations, tension lines or other minor imperfections. These are not considered defects, but are inherent to the beauty of fine woven carpets.
