Frieze rugs feature long lengths of fibers that are tightly twisted together. This twisting causes them to curl. Frieze rugs, which are sometimes confused with shags, are best for more casual rooms. On the other hand, Shag is sometimes called the “sheepdog rug” for obvious reasons. It has long, looped yarns and a deep pile that makes it plush and comfortable. This distinctive style now comes in a wide color palette.
Finally, there is Saxony, which this cut pile is neither high nor low. There's Saxony Plush, which is more formal and has a velvety texture, and Saxony Straight (also called "Trackless," because it won’t leave footprints or vacuum indentations) which is highly patterned.
The choice will ultimately come down to your needs, style, and budget. Natural means materials are harvested from nature and created into fibers, wool being the most common. Synthetics are man-made, generally more stain-resistant, and somewhat easier to care for. They include nylon, polyester, olefin, and Triexta.
