At Abbey Carpet and Floor, we have a variety of area rugs styles and constructions with their own characteristics. Hand-knotted, flat weave, hand-tufted, hand-hooked, and machine-made are the primary categories.
This rug is constructed with fine threads of colored yarn hand-knotted through a warp/weft backing and then sheared to create a pile. The two varieties of actual knot styles available are Persian and Turkish.
This rug is constructed without a pile. Colored weft yarns are woven through warps to create the pattern. Some varieties of flat weave are kilims, dhurries, and soumaks. Needlepoint is another type of flat weave made by weaving the colored yarns through a pre-made scrim.
Hand-tufted and Hand-hooked
These rugs are produced with a tufting gun that works like an oversized sewing needle. It pushes and pulls threads of yarn through a scrim—a pre-woven grid foundation. With a hooked rug, the loops of yarn are left intact to form a knobby loop pile. In a tufted rug, the tops of the loops are sheared to expose the thread ends for a softer and plusher cut pile.
In this process, the rugs are woven on mechanical looms. There are many types of mechanical looms, each with specific capabilities as to the type of design and textures it can create.
We offer products from brands such as:
Oriental Weavers, Karastan Rugs, Abbey Carpet, Stanton, and Nourison Carpet.
