What types of weaves are available for Wool Area Rugs?
We carry a wide variety of weave types to fit your needs when shopping for area rugs for your space. Loomed rugs can be machine-made or handmade. Machine-made loomed rugs are also known as powerloomed rugs. They are woven using computer-controlled machines and are generally the most affordable. Fibers are inserted into a mesh backing, and latex is applied to keep the fibers in place. Woven rugs consist of a process where multiple materials are woven together. Most woven rugs are constructed of wool and are much stronger than loomed or tufted area rugs. Tufted rugs are assembled using a net backing and synthetic fibers. The fibers are pulled through the backing with a machine or handheld tool. Secondary backing is then glued to the netting. Within Wool Area Rugs, the weave types include Tufted, Woven, Loomed, Knotted, Hooked, Braided and Solid Mat.
