  1. Hand Tufted - The term Tufting refers to a form of hooking, where yarns are pushed through the foundation of a rug by hand with the use of an electric tufting gun to form a pattern. A hand-tufted rug can be made with many types of fibers including wool, silk, jute, acrylic or a combination. Hand-tufted rugs are generally less expensive than hand-knotted rugs and offer a tremendous value to the customer. To construct a hand-tufted rug, a cotton canvas is stretched on a frame to form the foundation of the rug. The design is drawn on the canvas in stencil or in outline form. Using the described tufting gun, pile yarns are pushed through the foundation, making a loop, which is then cut giving the finished rug a plush or cut pile surface. The back of the foundation is given a latex coating to lock the pile yarns in place. A secondary canvas backing is applied to the rug to give it more stiffness and to cover the latex. In a Hi/Lo hand-tufted rug, the pile of the rug is a combination of cut and loop pile, which is used to create a three-dimensional effect. Hand Tufted rugs offer an incredible value due to price points ranging in the middle, above machine made and less expensive than hand knotted.
  1. Hand Knotted - This term refers to a wool rug woven by hand from various origins of the world such as India, Nepal, Tibet, Pakistan, Turkey and China to name a few. The word "Knot" refers to a process where each yarn is knotted through the back of an Oriental rug. The number of knots per square inch is a quality factor in a hand made rug. The back of hand knotted rugs generally consists of what is referred to as the Warp and Weft. The term Warp describes forming the backbone of the rug.  Warp yarns are attached to a loom and run the length of a rug. The Weft describes the yarns that are woven horizontally across the warp of a rug. Additional elements may be woven through out the rugs including wool with different deniers that may be percentages or specific shades of colors.  Sometimes part of the pattern may also be woven in silk.  Typically due to the labor and time involved in creating hand made rugs the price points are generally higher than Tufted and Machine Made rugs.
  1. Machine Made - Machine-made rugs can be made of various materials, including heat-set polypropylene, faux silk viscose and wool. Machine-made rugs are crafted on automated looms for yarn placement and weaving, where the pile yarns and the backing yarns are threaded into the machine ahead of time. A computer controls which colors are woven into certain parts of the fabric, creating the original design. Power loom weaving is very fast, but usually only allows for a limited number of colors at a time. By the use of machine looms the process of crafting these rugs becomes a much less labor-intensive product to produce allowing for incredible quality and beauty at affordable price points. Fringe varies by either being sewn directly into the rug or added after production.
