Our Machine made area rugs are one of our most popular area rugs weaves. Machine-made area rugs have become very sought after due to the variety of sizes, colors, and designs. Machine made rugs are also popular because of their lower pricing and higher availability. This is the most affordable construction method.
Machine made rugs are a product of the industrial age. Rather than have hundreds of people meticulously slave over a handful of hand-made rugs, we can push a button to quickly, and automatically produce them. In factories, large machines that have hundreds of spindles of fiber are at work. They mechanically weave these fibers together, into a thin, mesh backing. The machines are computer driven and run non-stop to maximize efficiency.
Often, synthetic fibers are used in the creation of machine woven rugs. Some of these synthetic fibers are polyester, polypropylene, nylon, and acrylic. These fibers are color fast and stain resistant. These rugs have a coarse latex backing. A computer dictates texture, design, and color so there is little chance of error in the production. This also means that the rugs that are produces are near duplicates of each other. While it is possible to customize rugs that are made by hand, machine made rugs are uncustomizable because of the restrictions of color, and material.
