Area Rugs Span History, Geography, and Culture

Rugs can either be handmade or manufactured. Learn the difference between rug types, why some wear and last longer, and why there is such an extensive range of prices.

If area rugs are a floor covering possibility for your home, any rug you choose will be constructed by either human hands or factory machines. And while modern technology enables us to mass produce area rugs in a broad spectrum of design, color, and sizes, there are differences between machine-made and handmade rugs.

With factory-made rugs, you’ll have flexibility and variety. You can find the same design in different sizes and different colors. Woven rugs are created on automated weaving looms in which multiple colors of yarn are sewn into a backing material. The rugs’ elaborate designs are created by the placement of the different colors of yarn. Handmade rugs are custom-made, one-of-a-kind designs that incorporate creative uses of color.
