Rugs for Luxury

A luxury rug is a great addition to any room. These rugs are unique in color and design. Each rug offers a bright color that looks warm and feels warm too. Luxury rugs originally come from China, Tibet, India, and Pakistan. Weaving is part of art. Each rug is handmade. They are made up of countless numbers of knots. These rugs are created by experienced weavers. It could take anywhere from a few months to over a year to create each masterpiece, it depends on how many knots are tied per square inch. Because they are handmade they are very expensive but they are worth every penny.

When shopping for area rugs you will find that there are several different types to choose from. No matter which type you look at there is nothing that compares to a handmade rug.

The different types of area rugs include:

Hand-Knotted Rugs: There is so much time that goes into a hand-knotted rug. The creator uses cotton strings that are tied to a frame. A tuft is created by the looping of pile yarns are placed onto the rug. This process takes so long.

Hand-Tufted Rugs: This type of rug requires stretching the cotton canvas onto a frame and then pushing pile yarns through using a hooking tool. This is cut so it forms a tuft. There are no knots in this type of rug. These rugs do not usually have fringes so they are less expensive than the other rugs.

Flat-Woven Rugs: The process is similar to the other means of making rugs except for when the cotton warps are strung they are threaded back and fourth which can create the flat pile. They can be reversible too. These are considered the least expensive handmade rugs.

It’s important to realize what kind of treasure you have when you own a luxury rug. A luxury rug is often called an heirloom. This type of rug requires careful care.
