Machine Made Area Rugs

  • Machine Made Area Rugs

    Machine made area rugs are usually much less expensive than say a hand knotted area rug or hand tufted area rug.

    You can usually tell a machine made area rug by looking at the bottom or back of the area rug itself. Usually if you see white stitching on the back and the lines are perfectly straight, your probably looking at a machine made area rug

    The price of a machine made area rug is impacted by the type of wool that is used and its density. There are various types of wool from various parts of the world that are used in making a machine made area rugs.  There are Indian Wool, Chinese Wool, Belgium Wool, and the finest New Zealand Wool.

    The New Zealand wool has long been considered the best wools and will cost a bit more because of their softness and resistance to shedding. A carpet made of New Zealand wool will always have a fen mark on the label. Only carpets that pass more than 20 demanding tests related to fiber content, appearance, retention, color-fastness and appropriate environmental performance carry their name.

    New Zealand wool creates the most colorful machine-made rugs in the world. New Zealand wool is the whitest, cleanest, purest wool in the world. This in turn will make the colors appear more rich and vibrant in color.

    Wool actually absorbs contaminants in the air, improving the indoor air quality and helping you breathe easier. For those of us allergy or asthma sufferers, this can be a great benefit!

    A machine made area rug won’t show traffic patterns near as bad to what nylon or synthetic carpet does. You’ll find lots of bargains out there on the lower grades of wool but Buyer Beware! Depending on the density of the pile you should expect to get some shedding and wear patterns.

    As a result we prefer to sell wool products, but we do work with the best companies that offer the best quality nylon rugs too.
