What are Tufted Rugs?

Basic rugs 101 tells us that there are several different kinds of rug weaves. A tufted rug is one that is woven by pushing yarn through a heavy canvas. You can actually buy kits to make tufted rugs in outlet stores. In those kits, the yarn can be precut, and the canvas has colored sections to help the weaver follow a particular design pattern.

The pile of a tufted rug is cut, usually with all of the yarn cut the same length. Some rugs, however, are made more interesting by cutting the yarns slightly longer or shorter to bring out the design. Tufted area rugs can be incredibly elegant or country cozy. They are durable, but they may require professional cleaning care depending on the yarns used.

Today's tufted area rugs can be made of synthetic yarns that last and can be bright, colorful additions to any room.

When you're looking for tufted carpets online, be sure to check out several websites so that you can compare prices, sales, and special offers.

Remember that typical tufted carpets need to be cleaned with care so that strips of yarns do not come loose.
