Flat weave rugs are a popular alternative to traditional Persian and oriental rugs. The
quality and wide array of beautiful patterns are just as available in flat woven rugs, but
typically at a lower price point. They are thinner than thick pile rugs and for the most part
the pattern is shown on both sides. Another advantage is that they are thinner and the
tight weave reduces the collection of dust and other allergens. Combined with the fact
that they are also easier to clean, flat weave rugs have become a popular option for
children’s rooms, dining areas and other rooms with heavy traffic.
