Handmade

Area rugs in this category can be hand-knotted, hand-tufted, hand-loomed or hand-hooked. Hand-tufted area rugs are created in a very similar fashion to hand-hooked area rugs. The major difference is that after the loop pile is created, it is usually sheared to produce a flat pile surface. As the name implies, this type of area rug is produced by craftsmen who draw the design on a canvas which will become the area rug’s anchor backing.

Area Rug Care and Maintenance

VACUUMING, SPOT CLEANING + TREATMENTS

In addition to proper padding it is important to rotate your area rug periodically. Over time, set traffic paths in your home and/or sunlight patterns can cause fading or uneven wear to an area rug that is not occasionally rotated.
