Popular tufting designs

Tufting is the biggest rug-related TikTok phenomenon around. It involves using a heavy-duty tufting gun to shoot needles into a fabric to create unique and fluffy designs. Tufting became hugely popular during lockdown, a time when people were investing more time into creative DIY projects.

 

This article will show you some of the popular types of rugs that people make with the tufting technique. You will be able to use these designs as inspiration for your next rug!

A really cool tufting design to make is one of your pets. It’s a great way to immortalise your pets and show your infinite love for them. It might also confuse them to see their face in a rug, which is always fun.
