Flatweave Area Rugs
Flatweave area rugs are probably the most ancient of rugs. They are made by weaving a simple cloth in an intricate pattern and they have rich, vibrant colors. Rugs made with loomed threads have no pile or backing like knotted and tufted rugs. Since the pattern on each side of a flat weave floor covering is the same, flatweave rugs are generally lighter, softer, and more flexible.
Flatweave area rugs are usually made of jute, cotton, wool, sisal, and synthetic materials and have a special attraction for anyone who owns one. Flatweaves are comfortable to walk on and they have a unique appearance that can go with any décor. Rugs with flatweave constructions feel right at home anywhere, but fun things happen when they play with one another and combine to make beautiful blends, with design enhancements such as herringbone, tassels, and fringe.

Advantages of Flatweave Area Rugs
Flatweave rugs are available in numerous styles
These days, modern flat-weave rugs are preferred by most homeowners. Flatweave floor covering undoubtedly adds a relaxed tone to a room, but there are also lots of contemporary designs available with sleek, modern patterns and colors to match even the most sophisticated décor. A wide range of flatweave rugs is available, from more traditional tribal patterns to more contemporary designs and colors.
Flatweave carpets are easy to place
Flatweave rugs are lighter than many other ones because they don't have a pile, so they use less material. As they do not have a backing, they can be folded or rolled up easily and are more flexible. The ability to rearrange your furniture or make seasonal changes can be very helpful if you live by yourself and like to rearrange your furniture.
Flatweave area rugs are durable
Quality flat-weave rugs withstand high foot traffic well and are an excellent option for use in public areas such as entryways and sitting areas. Flatweave rugs are not constantly crushed underfoot because of the weave style. In contrast to loop pile or cut pile rugs, this rug will not develop flat areas or paths with wear. A flatweave rug is ideal for rooms that see a lot of foot traffic, such as hallways or sitting areas with only a couple of ways to exit your furnished room.
FlatWeave rugs are easy to maintain
Vacuuming won't damage or lift loose threads of flatweave rugs. However, make sure the rug is anchored to the floor, as light rugs, are prone to shifting, and can easily slip when vacuumed.
Flatweave rugs don’t shed
Flatweave rug fibers tend not to shed as often as other types of rugs when there isn't a cut pile or constant friction on the ends of the threads - even wool, which tends to shed more than other rug materials.
Flatweave rugs can be reversed
While we don't recommend that you flip your area rug. If you spill something on a flat weave area rug, you can flip it over. The pattern of a flat weave area rug is the same on both sides.
Flatweave rugs are versatile
The flat weave can also be used as a layering element when it is paired with hair-on-hide rugs or other textured rugs, such as shag. Flatweave rugs are more pliable and lightweight, so they aren't just for the floor. They also make great throws and accents for your furniture, as well as wall hangings.
