Hand Tufted Rugs
Hand tufted rugs are somewhat of a “hybrid” rug in the sense that a person actually holds a needle machine that is used to punch a tuft of wool into a canvas backing. These tufts are actually held by latex rubber which is also covered by another linen covering. If the rug has a canvas backing, it’s tufted. Although tufted rugs are not as well constructed as hand knotted rugs, they are much quicker to produce and the same color and design can come in a variety of sizes.
