Stripes running parallel with the rug’s short side will pull your attention side to side rather than along its length. So, if you want a small hallway or living room to look larger or broader, orient the rug stripe in that direction.
A high-priced stripped rug usually comprises high-quality wool, silk, or other natural fibres. On the other hand, a lower-cost rug is often constructed of synthetics such as polyester, olefin, nylon, or even low-quality wool or a natural fibre such as jute.
Regularly vacuuming your striped Rug, like plumping a pillow, will help it keep its fluffy look. The wool and other fibres that make up a shaggy rug are “shaken up” when you vacuum. This helps loosen and remove dirt that is stuck to the Rug.
When backing yarns get wet, the fibres swell, which causes the yarns that were under tension to loosen. The swelling is caused by water, which can come from humidity, spills, or cleaning. This can also happen if the pressure of the second carpet backing is different from that of the first backing.
