What is the Difference Between a Handwoven and Machine-woven Rug?
- Even, consistent patterns featured on both the front and back of a rug; machine-woven rugs often feature a pattern-break, while handwoven luxury rugs are carefully woven. When determining if a rug is handwoven, authentic handmade rugs feature deeper levels of dye and more distinct patterns on the underside
- Thick, firmly-rooted fringe knots of varying sizes. The fringe on machine-made rugs are typically glued on or individually woven, but authentic Oriental rugs feature durable and consistent weaving throughout
- Authentic, handwoven rugs are made out of durable, yet high-quality materials such as organic cotton and silk, while machine-made rugs are generally made out of polyester and other affordable, yet less-durable materials that over time, don't hold up as well as natural materials
