Frequently Asked Wallpaper QuestionsHow do I know how much wallpaper to buy?
First measure the length of your wall, then the height of it. Multiply the two numbers to get the area in square feet. Divide the number by the square footage that your roll covers. Round up to get the number of rolls you need.
Where can I buy your wallpaper?
The wallpaper is available from Judit's online store, or through your interior designer.
Can I get a sample before committing to buying the rolls?
Yes, of course! Please send an email to email@example.com with your address and the names of the designs and I will send you a small swatch. Swatches are also available to buy on the website. All 8.5" x 11" swatches are $5 including shipping.
Do I need to size or prime my wall before hanging the wallpaper?
Sizing and priming the wall both prevent the paste from being absorbed into the wall, ensure a better grip, create a more even surface and make removal easier. Sizing is used for porous or plaster walls, and priming is used for drywall.Primers can be oil based or acrylic based. Oil based primers are used for drywall, and acrylic based primers are used to seal the surface if you're pasting over existing wallpaper, especially vinyl wallcoverings.
Do I need paste for my wallpaper?
Yes. The wallpaper is unpasted. Please visit your local retailer of wallpaper pastes to find a suitable one for your walls.
How long does it take for the wallpaper to ship? Printing takes 4-6 weeks. Orders are shipped via UPS standard or Canada Post, unless the customer requires a different shipping method. Orders from overseas are usually shipped using Canada Post. The wallpaper is printed in the US. If you are in the US, it will ship straight from the printer to save on shipping costs, border fees, taxes and time. If you live in Toronto you can also pick your wallpaper up. Please call for an appointment.
Frequently Asked Rug QuestionsMy rug has fluff on it. Is it defective?
No, all wool rugs "shed" for a few weeks. The amount of shedding depends of how much foot-traffic it gets. Regular vacuuming should keep those fluff pieces in check.
What's the difference between hand-tufted and hand-knotted rugs?
Hand-tufted rugs are made using a hand-gun that inserts tufts of yarn into the canvas, which has the design on it. After the yarn is in place, the rug is sheared to the desired pile height. Hand-tufted rug designs are glued to a cotton backing using latex. The disadvantage of tufted rugs is that they don't have a long life-span. Hand-knotted rugs are made by individual knots, tied by hands of skilled artisans. There is no backing. You can see the design on the reverse side of the rug as well. The tighter the weave is, or the more knots the carpet has per square inch, the better quality it is. Judit Gueth Design's hand-knotted rugs are 100 knots per square inch quality.
Do I need a rug pad?
Hand-tufted rugs have cotton backing and they are don't buckle and slide as easily as thinner rugs, like hand-knotted rugs. Usually hand-tufted rugs work well without a pad, unless you find that your rug is slippery on your floor, but hand-knotted rugs have a better grip if they have one.
Do you do custom rug design?
Yes, we welcome commissions for custom rug. Applicable design fees are extra (depending on complexity). You can also bring your own design and it will be redrawn to make it suitable for manufacturing. You're welcome to bring your child's drawing to create a one-of-a-kind rug or your company logo to use as a marketing tool.
Can I change colours or size on existing designs?
Yes, you can select different colours or order a different size for any existing design.
My rug is a bit different than the one in the picture.
These rugs are hand-made, and can have small imperfections, like slight variations in colour or design. This doesn't mean your rug is defective. These variations add to your rug's beauty. Machine-made rugs would probably be perfect, so you'll have to find the type of rug that suits your decor.
How long does it take to ship a rug from India? If you ship your rug by boat, it takes 3-4 months. You also have other options, like shipping by air or by courier, which takes about a week.
