What Separates A Hand-Woven Rug From A Machine-Made Rug?
- Even, consistent patterns featured on both the front and back of a rug. Machine-woven rugs often feature a pattern-break, while handwoven artisan rugs are closely woven. When looking to see if a rug is handwoven, genuine handmade rugs feature deeper levels of dye and more noticable patterns on the underside. Machine-woven rugs are often much less detailed in terms of both weave pattern and color when turned over.
- Thick, firmly-rooted fringe knots of multiple sizes. The fringe on machine-made rugs is typically glued on or individually woven, but authentic Oriental rugs feature durable and consistent weaving throughout. Inspect the fringe of a rug to see whether it is consistently applied and tightly knotted. If you can see that it is loose or part of a separate "end-piece", you can quickly tell that your Oriental rug is not a genuine, handwoven area rug, but rather a mass-produced, machine-made rug.
- The materials used in the rug. Authentic, handwoven rugs are made out of durable, yet luxurious materials like organic cotton and silk, while machine-made rugs are generally made using polyester and similar materials. While these fibers may be less expensive and easier to source, they will not last anywhere near as long as a hand-crafted rug made with first-class materials. Think of buying a rug like buying a pair of shoes: would you rather pay more money today and have a product that is well-made and will last for years, or save some money today but know you will need a new rug in a few years?
