Map of the world


There are two main types of construction used to produce floor rugs and wall hangings - hand made rugs and machine made rugs.


Hand made rugs include: hand knotted, hand tufted and kilim rugs. From the above, hand knotted rugs are the most valuable and durable as its process of weaving involves one person actually spinning the yarn and knotting each rug one yarn at a time.


Machine made rugs are becoming more popular than ever. It’s an affordable way of enjoying the designs of hand made masterpieces. Generally they are available in a large selection of sizes with matching runners and door mats.


The quality of rugs will depend on the type of fibre(s) used on the pile as well as the process of construction. The two main types of yarns are synthetic yarns and natural yarns.


Wool yarn is the most well known fibre used in rug production. It has been used for hundreds of years and for good reason. It is naturally hard wearing, with great resilience. The actual shape of the yarn has soil hiding properties that make it appear cleaner than synthetic rugs. Noted for luxury and softness, wool has high bulk.

Silk is often used to add accent colours to high end wool rugs or it can be used to make an entire rug. Silk has a very soft, luxurious feel to it.


Polypropylene is a single process yarn, which is made up with the colour already incorporated in the fibre. It is much harder for this yarn to be stained.

Heat set polypropylene is polypropylene yarn that is twisted and then treated with heat to stay twisted and mimic the natural look of wool yarn. It offers exceptional colour fastness and wear properties.

Acrylic is a soil and wear resistant yarn. It is easy to clean and it has an unlimited variety of brilliant colours. Most acrylic rugs are cottony soft and have beautiful textures. 



START FROM THE RUG: If you start with a totally empty room, choose a rug, then paint the wall(s) in colours found in the rug. Those colours can be the foundation for your room.

Rug Interior Design


If you start with furniture, choose a rug to pick up the colours used in your furnishing patterns. You may do this by taking up a favourite shade in your sofa or curtains, and use this as the foundation of the rug you wish to purchase.


There is also a trend to use rugs as a point of reference in a room. A bright modern design used with chrome and leather furniture, or a beautiful traditional pattern under a formal dining table, overall an area rug can visually integrate and harmonise diverse elements in any décor or can revitalise a room.
