There are many native American peoples who create magnificent area rugs, some are flat woven and others are braided rugs or hooked rugs, even leather rugs and lots of light pastel blue area rug shades in geometric patterns. As far as area rug cleaning goes, these rugs are the best because they are often made from cotton and can be easily hand washed or tossed in the machine.

There are some wool area rug creations that have the traditional Mexican or Southwest patterns and there are odd variations on tradition with purple area rug creations that blend art deco colors and dessert sandy tones together. The native styles can also come in stark shades like the black area rugs styles that have an animal motif and little else or are predominantly black with a jagged pattern like the black Kokopeli are rugs.
