There is a simple explanation. When carpets are manufactured the carpet yarns are made to lean in one direction, not stand up straight. This is called the “lay of the pile”. The physical characteristic of this lean causes any object resting on the tips of these yarns to move in the direction of the lean. When people walk on an area rug it creates a vibration and the rug moves. Carpet retailers carry pads which can be placed under area rugs on wall to wall carpets. These pads will prevent the area rugs from moving.
