Synthetic Shag Rugs

Synthetic shaggy style rugs are made primarily from polyester and viscose, or a blend of both using viscose as a thin highlight fiber. Polyester is a plastic petroleum­-based fiber. Viscose is a regenerated cellulose (wood pulp) fiber. Both fibers create a rug with a short life span, with polyester lasting longer, and with less shedding, […]

Silk Woven Rugs

Silk rugs can range from 100 to over 1,000 knots per square inch in hand woven rugs. The production cost of silk is high, and the labor in the higher quality rugs can make some of these works of art quite an investment. Many owners of smaller silk rugs will display them on the wall […]

Over-Dyed Rugs

There is a popular trend in rugs of chemically stripping the dyes of woven wool rugs, and then over­dyeing them with strong colors rarely similar to the original dyes.  The chemical dye stripping process damages and wears down the wool, so often the rug looks more threadbare, with cotton foundation fibers exposed.  The over-dye is […]

Chunky Wool Rugs

Chunky, felted wool rugs are often referred to as “noodle” rugs because the wool pieces look like big pasta noodles. They are a dense, bouncy floor covering. They are often wool chunks strung into a cotton, heavy backing material. Shedding and pilling is common with all felted wool in traffic areas. Trim pulls with scissors. […]

“Luster Washed” Wool Hand Woven Rugs

Weaving regions can give wool rugs a “luster wash” to chemically create more sheen to the rug so it shines more like silk. This is similar to highlighting hair, in that the fibers are lightened and smoothed using solutions similar to bleach.  “Luster washing” done well creates a beautiful effect to the rugs. They have […]
