How Do You Design
With Safavieh Style?
Construction: Power Loomed
Fiber Content: Viscose
What’s old is new again in Safavieh’s Vintage Collection of rugs inspired by the trend to recycling old carpets and over-dyeing them in brilliant colors to camouflage stains and flaws. Each rug is power loomed in Belgium of 100 percent organic viscose yarn in a low cut pile to recreate the threadbare appearance of worn vintage carpets. Yarns are deliberately dyed unevenly to add old-world character to the collection’s classic Persian and Turkish designs.

Power loomed rugs do not use backing material on the underside of the rug. A thin coat of latex is applied to the underside of the rug to secure the yarns firmly in place. This latex coat is virtually invisible and is not considered backing material.example»
Helpful Tip: On area rugs with no backing the design pattern is clearly visible on the underside of the rug.
Pile height refers to the face of your rug as measured from the
top of the yarns down to its foundation. Pile height is not the total thickness of the rug. The thickness of a rug is the pile height + foundation + backing material (if used). In general you can add approx. 1/8 ¼ inch to the pile height to determine the total thickness of a rug.
