A room without a carpet! – something is missing
A carpet can complete a room in many ways, a room without a carpet however leaves a cold unfinished feeling. Furthermore carpets have many functions that improve the living quality and give a sense of well being. On top of the visual characteristics one must not forget the practical benefits of a carpet, for instance the room acoustics are improved absorbing a lot of the echoes depending on the type and size of the carpet. Unpleasant impact noises are also reduced. One can only describe walking on a carpet with an appropriate pile-height as extremely enjoyable. With socks, or even better without, one automatically gets the feeling when walking on a carpet as if one is walking on clouds. Depending on the carpet material(s) body heat will be reflected and helps against “cold feet”. Carpets are also good for house dust allergies by binding the dust in the pile and not releasing it into the room.back to menu
Carpets for every room
A carpet helps any room to look elegant and exclusive. Carpet galleries or runners for halls and corridors or in the bedroom as a border carpet around the bed. Round carpets, oval or octagonal shapes, free-lying or a flattering presence under dining tables are all possible with ANNA VEDA. Such free form carpets can be adapted to fit beautifully into any architectural shape. The possibilities with hand-made carpets from ANNA VEDA are without any limits. Even with a carpet in the bathroom the visual effect and even more important the haptic pleasure of walking on them is increased enormously. Of course the living room is the classical place for a special individual carpet but even in a child's bedroom a carpet has many uses and pleasures. It mustn't always be the boring street-plan play carpet..back to menu
Fitted custom carpets and own-designs
Everything is possible – the ANNA VEDA carpet-rug atelier (carpet configurator). ANNA VEDA understands with “made to measure carpets” not only the literal sense – exact or special size but also a completely individual custom-made carpet. All of ANNA VEDA’s manufactured carpets are individual and custom-made. Everything in the carpet can be changed and/or adapted using the unique and intuitive online ANNA VEDA carpet-rug atelier (carpet configurator). You don’t just change the measurementsof the carpet but rather steplessly change the colours, change the pile-height(s), choose your material(s) and structures, choose your size (up to 800cm×2000cm) and choose between long-pile, deep-pile or short-pile. Everything is based on your own choices, helping you create your perfect dream carpet that you always longed for. ANNA VEDA offers hundreds of carpet designs and carpet proposals including from some from notable designers, which you can change and or adapt as you wish. You may prefer to upload your own design with which you can create your own special carpet. Every carpet uploaded or customised in(to) the ANNA VEDA rug atelier (carpet configurator) is always, when the production by one of our master craftsman is finished, an individual product customised exactly to your wishes and a carpet well deserving the term unique in all aspects.back to menu
Carpet conception and location
It is very seldom that a room is adapted to a carpet, normally a carpet is one of the last elements to finish the room. This is by no way an easy task. Therefore finding a perfectly matching carpet using classical methods! more often than not relies on whether you accept one, or more compromises. Does the carpet colour combination match? are the correct carpet measurements available? To give you just a couple of examples. With the ANNA VEDA rug atelier (carpet configurator) there are as good as no compromises necessary. You want to match the colour combination of your carpet with an element in the room? No problem. Every colour and colour combination is available. One of the many innovative and intuitive tools is the possibility of uploading a photo with your desired colour combination (for example from the room directly) and adapting it selectively, simply and quickly into your carpet. Maybe you have adapted your carpet and it is almost perfect, almost! However you would like a tone on tone colour combination with an accent colour from your room. Nothing easier. Just use the ANNA VEDA tone on tone function and choose the desired colour for your carpet – done! Almost! However you still find that your carpet is a bit too dark or too light. No problem, another unique function is the possibility to change steplessly not only the lightness but also if required the saturation of the complete carpet- lighter, darker a deeper saturation etc.back to menu
Carpets with long pile, high pile or short pile
By using the ANNA VEDA rug atelier (carpet configurator) you decide the pile-height(s). The pile-height definition of a carpet is not just a tool for the style of the carpet but also offers the possibility with different pile-heights to achieve a deeper optical effect for instance with a “3D effect”. Furthermore the functionality of the carpet can, with the pile-height tool be perfectly adapted to its’ environment, for instance under a table where the chairs are often moved a short-pile carpet would be advisable. A point to take into consideration is when deciding on the pile-height(s) of your carpet is, the higher the pile-height the higher the possibility that the design could become less sharp or less exact. With complicated designs it is therefore also advisable to define a short-pile carpet. On the other hand a carpet with dense long-pile is a wonderful fleecy carpet which, in socks or barefoot, is always a pleasant feeling to walk on. A shaggy carpet is a long-pile carpet and looks fleecy however due to the relatively coarse and loose manufacturing process this type of carpet feels, and is, much harder when walking on.back to menu
Carpets with loop or cut pile
The choice of loop or a cut pile mainly has design reasons, which you can choose in the ANNA VEDA rug atelier (carpet configurator) for each colour area partially or for the entire carpet. The use of loop changes the structure of the carpet or the selected surface and also increases the light reflection more or less depending on the material. Technically, the loop has the advantage that dirt cannot penetrate through the “closed” thread in the pile as easily as if the carpet pile was cut open. A short carpet pile in a loop is also more resilient than a cut pile of the same height. However, the design of the carpet suffers if the loop is used excessively.back to menu
Production methods for carpets of ANNA VEDA
All ANNA VEDA carpets are exclusively hand-crafted in one of four carpet manufacturing types: hand-weaved, hand-knotted (Persian knot), hand knotted (Tibetan knot) and hand-tufted. Every one of these carpet types has its’ own special characteristics. Weaved carpets do not have as many colours and are limited in their shape and complexity of the design but have the advantage of a relatively short production time-frame. Hand-knotted carpets using a Persian knot have a very fine surface and are excellent for complex designs. Hand-knotted carpets using a Tibetan knot are also very good for complex designs with characteristic line structures that gives them their own artisan charm. In comparison hand-tufted carpets are quicker to manufacture than knotted carpets however due to their production technique they must be glued with latex and are not so rich in detail as a knotted carpet. In more frequently used areas we would advise using a knotted carpet because they are considerably more resilient.back to menu
The choice of materials
With the ANNA VEDA rug atelier (carpet configurator) it is possible to choose for nearly all products, either partially for one colour or for the complete carpet any material from the following selection: New Zealand Wool (mainly worsted), Silk, Nettle, Linen, Bamboo and Tencel ™ and/or different combinations of these materials. Plastic and synthetic fibres burden our environment in every respect. ANNA VEDA respects this and uses only sustainable materials in our carpets.back to menu
Carpets and floor heating
An underfloor heating does not limit the choice of a carpet. All too often people are advised that carpets that lay over floor heating should be flat-woven. This sounds logical but in the long run this is irrelevant. There is no need to abstain from carpets with fibres. All hand-made carpets, woven or knotted allow a certain amount of heat through from floor heating because their underconstruction is one and the same fabric warp and weft and principally permeable and therefore not closed. Fact is that the production density (knot density), pile-height and the type of materials used in a carpet all have an influence on the heat permeability. However this influence relates only to how quickly a room warms up and not, if, it warms up. A good comparison would be floor heating under a wooden floor. Wood has positive insulating characteristics just like the wool in a carpet. Parquet flooring is generally suitable for floor heating. The principle lies in the general warming up and heat releasing characteristics of the wooden floor and the quality of the insulation materials contained in it. The same goes for carpets, the better the insulation properties (material, density pile-height etc.) the longer it takes to warm up and release the heat into the room. Basically this is for carpets over floor heating insignificant as they attunes theirselves in time. To sum this up there is no need to either increase or decrease your heating appliances. Conversely the carpet functions as a heat-resevoir similar to a clothing article, no matter where the heat source finds itself.back to menu
Carpet reference sample
You have the choice. After creating your desired carpet, you can order a sample (material and colour reference) to help you decide if our realisation of your creation meets your expectations. This sample is produced just as individually as the final carpet.
There are three sample sizes to choose from: 30 cm x 30 cm, 60 cm x 60 cm and 90 cm x 90 cm. and with this sample size select any area of your self created desired carpet.
After receiving your carpet reference sample and assuming you like everything, it can be ordered. Of course, you can make any corrections you wish and if needed a new reference sample of your carpet can be ordered.
