Is There Still Hope For Your Lovely Tufted Wool Rug?
Rugs come in all different shapes, sizes and particularly HOW THEY ARE MADE makes a world of difference. There are fine hand knotted rugs that can last many generations and there are also rugs that are meant to mimic a hand knotted rug. The mimicking rugs are generally manufactured by pushing tufts of wool fibers through a cloth base and then applying a layer of glue to hold all of these loose tufts in place. To give the rug a finished look, a piece of monkscloth is then glued to the back. This style of manufactured rug is called a tufted rug.
What’s great about a tufted rug?
It gives you the look of a fine hand knotted area rug
A tufted rug won’t break the bank, it’s much more affordable.
What’s bad about tufted area rugs?
The glue dries and begins to break down in about 10 years or so.
You will notice a white silt on the floor under your rug & a lumpiness to the rug.
