Construction and Materials. Numerous traditional rugs are hand-loomed or hand knotted. Weavers still create vintage and high-end Oriental rugs in this traditional way. Colonial America gave birth to a fresh type of traditional area rug, the rag rug or braided rug. Their weavers typically construct the rugs from long strips or rags of braided fabric together then they area stitched to create a level surface. Alternatively, a weaver may weave rag rugs on a loom using strips of rags and fibers or strong thread. Contingent on the kind of rug, traditional area rugs may be constructed from wool or camel's hair, 100 percent cotton fabric, or other natural fibers. Lately, rugs traditional in appearance have also been made from polyester and other blends of man-made fibers.
Other materials, such as cotton, polypropylene and viscose are used in contemporary area rugs to give you long lasting durability that will look and feel great in your home for many years to come. These materials are typically used in combinations, giving each rug a special look and feel. For example, viscose can be used with polypropylene to add a shine to your area rugs, a look that is nice in otherwise neutrally colored homes. Contemporary area rugs also come in a wide selection of styles and colors.
Shapes and Sizes. Many Victorian and early American homes have hardwood floors that are accented with large traditionally rectangular rugs. These substantially cover the floor, leaving only a margin of the wood floor to be seeable around the room. Today, many colonial and country style homes often comprise oval or round braided traditional rugs placed beneath the kitchen or dining-room table and chairs. This anchors them solidly in the middle of the room. Frequently, traditional rugs will also be set in front of a fireplace, and these come in a diversity of shapes and sizes.
