Where home decor & fashion meet
Within the past decade, area rugs have climbed back into the home decor scene with a vengeance.
Area Rugs are a fantastic way to add colour or warmth to your room, enhancing your décor. CAM Living area rugs combine the right colours, textures and patterns to suit any style or need for your home. An area rug can help you to section off open spaces by creating cozy corners, or act as a centerpiece to complete a room.
Not only are they used for comfort and practicality, but they can also be used for statement pieces or outlets of expression in the decorating process. CAM Living rugs come in a range of qualities, textures, patterns, designs, and sizes
Area Rugs can instantly add comfort and softness to cold, hard floors & are a stylish way to cover hardwood and tiles. CAM Living offers a variety of pile heights that give you the ability to choose the level of softness that you seek out.
An area rug can change the whole look of your space. Statement pieces can be toned down with a neutral rug or a duller decor can be spiced up by a rug that brings new life to the space. There is a rug to match every individual style and preference.
Rugs can separate one “room” from another. Placing a large rug on the floor of a living room area and another underneath the kitchen table can separate the two rooms by function. Calculated rug placement can also create a spacious apperance.
Choosing the right floor covering for your space can be fun but it does require careful consideration to make sure you find the right fit.
The type of yarn is important in choosing a rug for your space. Feeling the different textures and qualities from different fibres can be a sensory experience. It can also give you a real feel for which one will be right for your space.
Over time, the advancement in the production of synthetic rugs has improved and most rugs and mats today are created in synthetic fibers due to cost-effectiveness. The durability of these yarns and the colours and designs available make them an attractive alternative to natural fiber rugs and one of a kind traditional Persian and Oriental rugs. These rugs are available in many styles and can be used indoor or outdoor depending on the materials used.
While most rugs today are created in synthetic fibers due to the cost-effectiveness, natural yarns have been used for a long time in creating rugs and mats. They have rich textures and are naturally distinct in their colourations. The best part is natural materials are eco-friendly as they come from renewable resources like plants or animals that naturally grow the fibers. Although they are made from natural materials, these rugs and mats should not be used outdoors.
At CAM we own all of our production facilities. That means we control the entire production process from design to creation to export. We have state-of-the-art equipment that gives us the freedom to manufacture a variety of rug types, that use different construction techniques.

Power Loomed rugs and mats are woven using automated textile weaving machines. The machine looms are powered by electricity and the designs are produced by entering them into a computer making it the same every time. These looms can be 4 – 5 meters in width and using a power shuttle to push the weft threads through the warp threads. Human intervention may be required to replace the yarn bobbin. Power looming is used in flatweaves, cut and loop and cut pile constructions and is commonly woven onto jute, cotton or polypropylene backings.
Printed rugs and mats are woven without a pattern and then a design is printed onto the fabric. CAM Living is able to print any design onto a variety of our rug qualities, and have both chromojet and digital printers.
Choromojets and digital printers inject the dye with incredible precision into the face of the fabric. For printing, these colors are pressurized (1-3 bar) and supplied directly to the jets, which are electromagnetically opened and closed up to 1,200 times per second. The machine never has to touch the fabric surface to place the print onto of the pile. There are no screens in digital printing, which means that any pattern can be repeated without any issue.
One-of-a-kind hand-knotted rugs are created using an artist’s passion and creativity. They are beautiful and intricate using classic designs and colors that never go out of style. These rare and unique pieces have a quality that is incomparable to machine-made rugs. They are much more durable and if taken care of properly, can last a lifetime. Intricate designs can tell the story of the artist, passed down for generations and unlike machine-made rugs, each is unique.
They are usually made of silk or wool and are loomed by hand which can take several days of labor to complete. The more time required, the more valuable the rug. They can be folded in either direction and the backing will have the same pattern as the pile surface. If you are looking to purchase a hand-made rug, be sure to know what to look for first!
Tufted rugs and mats are often found in the home. Most wall-to-wall broadloom is constructed by tufting. What this means is that needles will push the yarn through a backing to create the pile surface. Backings can differ from PVC on carpet tile backing, gel latex, cushioned backing to action is woven backing which is a harder material that holds the yarn in place with adhesive. Commercial carpet like level loop and Berber loop constructions are generally tufted products.
