Weaving your dreams, in an unique style! Our clients have already realized that we do not just make rugs, but weave dreams. The greatest desire for Ferreira de Sรก, is not to be one of the greatest producers of bespoke rugs, but to provide the best services to those that seek us to make their dreams come true; a personal and/or public (contract) space, timeless, where excellence and creativity are appreciated. From a Portuguese family business, situated in a village with a tradition of handwoven tapestries, Tapeรงarias Ferreira de Sรก evolved to a large-scale organisation,
constantly expanding and improving its factory, designing an industrial unit with a solid and automated structure, while taking care not to neglect the origins and tradition of the art of weaving. All our carpets are custom-made and for us every project is unique and personalized, bearing in mind the personalities and tastes of those that choose them. We have accepted the challenge of cooperating alongside architects and interior designers, who work with highly demanding customers, fully aware that fashions are temporal but quality and elegance are not.
Traditional production methods reinvented with contemporary design
Our culture of tapestries of quality and luxury, combined with traditional and innovative processes, enables us to manufacture products with design and elegance. Ferreira de Sรก can offer a wide range of possibilities of materials (such as wool, linen and tencel), designs (which are unlimited), colours (from our catalogue or upon request), volumetry and different shapes for your exclusive rugs.

HAND-KNOTTED RUGS These rugs, produced by highly skilled and experienced craftsmen, are woven by a creation of knots in manual looms. A short piece of yarn is tied around two neighbouring warp strands creating a knot on the surface of the rug. These handmade rugs, mostly Portuguese hand-knotted, are true works of art, both the classical designs as well as the contemporary ones.
Knots in manual looms 7
Wide range of designs
HAND-WOVEN These rugs are produced manually in looms and the weaving process is called flat weave, since no knots are used and the surface looks flat. The width of the rugs can go up to 5m, which make it possible to create a wide range of designs on a twofaced surface.
Highly durable rugs
HAND-TUFTED In a hand-tufted rug the yarn is pushed through a backing, creating a tuft. This method of rug making requires a high level of craftsmanship to efficiently and accurately portray the intricate designs. The tufting method creates a highly durable and beautifully accurate handmade rug that will weather foot traffic for years to come.
3D-TUFTED Tufting also allows us to explore the volumetry and dimensions of designs, giving way to a 3 dimensional rug. A single rug can have various pile heights on its surface, depicting numerous varying angles, reflecting a unique 3D surface experience.
