Flatweave rugs are woven on a loom and therefore do not have a pile. Flatweave rugs are made by hand or machine by weaving vertical yarns (warps) through the horizontal yarns (wefts). Flatweave rugs are thin, yet durable, and are often one of the most affordable options in floor coverings. They are known for their casual style and require very little maintenance. Flatweave rugs come in an astounding array of colors and patterns. They are often reversible as well. Examples of flat weave rugs are dhurries and kilims.
