Handmade Area Rugs

Do you remember the Friend’s episode where Phoebe hated Pottery Barn? Her thinking was she only liked original items with a story and she refused to buy anything mass-produced.

If you share any of that sentiment you are going to like the company I want to share with you today.

It’s a company I recently discovered called Sukhi Rugs. And while they have a beautiful assortment of area rugs, what makes them special is that each one is handcrafted by artisans from around the globe. Making rugs is their art.

How cool is that?

Each rug has meaning and reflects traditional and history. So now that you know the backstory, lets look at some of these beautiful handmade area rugs.

This rug is called the “Vasudev” and is hand-knotted with bamboo silk and wool and has a slightly worn look to it. Because they are hand-knotted, they are very durable.

The Kalim rug is made from hand-braided white wool (love) and is a pretty neutral for any room. The thick braiding adds monochromatic texture and pattern. You can read more about how they make wool rugs here.

Next up is the Isaac, another hand-knotted rug with soothing warm neutral colors. Something like this would work well over the hardwood floors I refinished recently.

This flat weave sheep wool rug is stunning in charcoal gray!

Another interesting thing to note regarding Sukhi rugs is that each of them is named after the artisan that made them. This one is called Kamaal. The colors in this one make me rethink the neutral color scheme in my house.

And you have to check out the collection of patchwork rugs. This one is called “Elif“.

The “Ayush” rug looks so plush, it would definitely cozy up a room in an instant.

Lastly, this beautiful rug from India. called “Lala” is very similar to the charcoal gray rug above but is a safer choice for us neutral-lovers.

Be sure to check out their beautiful felt rugs and their Beni Ourain Rugs as well!

Because each of these rugs is made by hand, you will get a one of a kind look. And don’t forget to get a good quality rug pad for underneath.

I think Phoebe would approve. 😉



This post was in partnership with Sukhi rugs, all opinions are 100% my own. You can read my full disclosure here.


  1. They’re very elegant and they look like Turkish carpets.
    I have four Turkish carpets and kilims in my house.
    I love them so much, each one’s motives tell a story.
    But your choices are also very nice.
