tuft me

Need a new fluffy rug? Create your own with Tuft Me. Tufted rugs designed with a handheld tufting gun are trending on TikTok for their plush yet artistic designs. The rise of tufting began when artists began making their colorful textiles at home. Here’s an example from Bill Wave and Mush Studios. If tufting is on your bucket list, you can learn and design your masterpieces with Tuft Me by booking a slot at Puchong and Damansara Uptown Outlet.
