Handcrafted Rugs

At Pottery Barn, we know that rugs can create the finishing touches to any room in your home. With our Handcrafted Rugs, you can add stunning works of art that decorate your flooring. From patterned rugs to unicolor designs, there’s a style for everyone. Some of our rugs are handcrafted of pure, yarn-dyed wool by artisan rug makers. Loomed without a backing for the silky, fluid feel of an heirloom tribal rug, these pieces weave an artisanal story that you’ll love to share with friends and family. When working with patterned rugs, it’s important to keep in mind the patterns and design throughout the room. For a bohemian look, pair as many patterns as possible for a carefree look.


For something a bit more subtle, you can stick to one pattern per room or tone down decorative patterns with solid rugs that ground your creations. Our collection of solid rugs include options featuring unique tonal palettes and luster that pairs well with a range of designs and furnishings. Color options include denim, charcoal and beige so you can pair your favorite colors with your home decor. If you are looking to try a patterned rug for the first time, geometric shapes in neutral shades are an excellent entry point if you’re nervous about adding too much boldness.


When it comes to rugs, you can add them to pretty much any room in the house, although they are particularly suited to certain areas. High traffic hallways and entryways benefit from the use of rugs as they protect your flooring from scratches and discoloration. You can also add rugs to children’s playrooms or other lounge spaces where family members spend a large amount of time sitting on the floor. The plush padding and fibers add an extra layer of comfort and even warmth on cold floors such as tile and hardwood.


You can also use rugs in outdoor spaces to make the area feel homier. Our outdoor rugs are crafted expertly from highly durable and weather-resistant materials to withstand exposure to the outside elements. These rugs are resistant to moisture, staining, fading and static, making them a long-lasting choice whether you use them indoors or outdoors. Because their construction makes them exceptionally well-equipped to hold up against heavy foot traffic, they’re ideal for entryways as well as on the back porch. You’ll find peace of mind knowing that these rugs incorporate recycled, eco-friendly materials that are nontoxic and bisphenol A-free for a healthy home.


Our collection of rugs includes custom options where you can create pieces that are ideal for your home. Many of our custom rugs are hand-tufted from 100 percent Indian wool and backed with recycled cotton. With eight different sizes and more than 25 color options, our custom rugs put you in the designer’s chair when it comes to interior decorating. Each custom rug order will arrive at your front door within 10 to 18 weeks. Take care of your rugs and ensure they look brand new for years to come by vacuuming regularly on a low setting. For the best results, vacuum from different directions, making several passes over the area to keep the fibers in proper position.


Add extra comfort to your rugs by pairing them with rug pads that ensure the minimization of slippage. With standard, premium and outdoor options, you’ll find a rug pad for every rug. Rug pads protect area rugs from dirt, oils and grime on the original floor surface and also keep reversible and natural fiber rugs from fading on the undersides due to wear and tear. Each type of rug pad is available in multiple widths and lengths and may be cut with scissors to achieve a precise fit under custom rugs and doormats.
