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 have 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 noticable patterns on the underside. Machine-woven rugs are often much less detailed in regard to both weave pattern and color when turned over.
- Thick, firmly-rooted fringe knots of varying sizes. The fringe on machine-made rugs is usually glued on or individually woven, but authentic Oriental rugs feature durable and consistent weaving throughout. Take a look at 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 standard "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.
- What the rug is made of. Authentic, handwoven rugs are made out of durable, yet luxurious materials like organic cotton and silk, while machine-made rugs are generally constructed from polyester and similar materials. While these fibers may cost less and found easier, they will not last anywhere near as long as a hand-crafted rug made with premium materials. Consider buying a rug like buying a pair of shoes: would you rather spend more money up-front and have a product that is built to last, or save some money right now but know you will need a new rug in a few years?
