A product and method for making a patterned area in a pile rug in which pile yarn is carved out and removed to form a trough-like area, and one or more fabric pattern pieces having a total area and shape coinciding with the carved out trough-like area is inserted into the trough-like area and adhesively bonded in place. The top surface of the fabric pattern piece is distinct in either color, texture, material, or pattern from the main pile surface to produce contrasting patterns in the surface of the rug. The fabric pattern piece may be a separate pile strip including its own base fabric and pile yarn of different color, texture, material, height, or other distinguishing characteristics from the pile yarn of the main body of the rug. The method is particularly adapted for forming linear patterned insert pieces along the borders of an area pile rug.
