How does tufting work?

In tufting, a tufting gun is used to shoot threads through a backing stretched over a frame. Depending on the setting of the gun, loops or cut threads are created to create different textures. The design process begins with a sketch on the backing, which is then brought to life through tufting. Finally, the backing is bonded to hold the threads in place.
