Tuft Me

In need of a new furry rug? Create your own with Tuft Me. Designed with a hand-held tufting gun, tuft rugs are trending on TikTok for their plush yet artistic designs. The rise of tufting took its course when artists started creating their colourful textiles at home. Here’s an example from Bill Wave and Mush Studios. If tuft-making is on your wishlist, you can learn and design your masterpieces with Tuft Me by booking a slot at the Puchong and Damansara Uptown outlet.
