Different Types of The Rugs


1.  Flatweave rugs

These are identical to Kilim and Dhurrie rugs. Because flat weave rugs lack a pile, they do not shed. They are woven on a loom as opposed to being hand-knotted. Weaving is accomplished by interlacing length and breadth threads. This style of weaving produces a rug that is incredibly delicate and elegant. The case is different for the Dhurrie rugs (Baranwal, 2018, p.470)In contrast to pile rugs, flatweave rugs may be reversed. In most instances, the design and patterns on either side of the rug are identical. The flatweave rugs are reversible, allowing you to utilize either side depending on your needs. The majority of kilim or flatweave carpets feature a geometric and diagonal design. These rugs are affordably priced. They favored the flooring in bathrooms and kitchens the most. Wool is the most essential and fundamental material utilized in producing flatweave rugs (Baranwal, 2018, p. 470). The length and width, or both, of most flatweaves, are often made of wool, an essential weft material for use with cotton warps. Art silk is the other material used in place of wool.

2.  Machine-made rugs

They are weaved using electrically powered weaving machines. These powered looms are controlled by electronic controllers and successively generate rugs. Unlike handwoven rugs, machine-made carpets require less time to produce. These different varieties of carpets are made from other materials. Typically, they consist of wool combined with synthetic fibers such as polypropylene and nylon and acrylic, art silk, and polyester (Lackey, 2018, p. 13).

3.  Hooked Rugs

Using a needle-like instrument, hooked rugs are handcrafted. These rugs are woven on canvas and feature a backing that aids in keeping the artwork intact. They are affordable and fashionable carpets.

4. Hide rugs

Hide carpets are neither handcrafted nor manufactured. What then are they? They are the outermost layer of an animal's body. The distinct pattern and texture of each animal's skin is the only thing that makes them gorgeous. The skin undergoes many processes until only leather and furs remain. Sheepskin, goatskin, deer hide, zebra hide, and cowhide are some of the most common forms of hiding rugs (Baranwal, 2018, p. 470).

5. Oriental Handmade Rugs

This type is the most important and historic rug type. These rugs have value from $1000 USD to 1,000,000 USD. Typically Takes 1-2 years depend on the size to weave by people in small villages and towns, and the material used in this type of rugs are 100% organic wool and pure silk. These are the rugs that last up to 200 year and they become vintage.
