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 artisan rugs are delicately 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 more basic in regard to both weave pattern and color when turned over.
- Thick, firmly-rooted fringe knots of multiple sizes. The fringe on mass-market rugs is typically glued on or individually woven, but authentic Oriental rugs feature durable and consistent weaving throughout. Check 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 easily tell that your Oriental rug is not an authentic, 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 high-quality materials such as organic cotton and silk, while machine-made rugs are generally made out of polyester and similar materials. While these materials may cost less and found easier, they will not last anywhere near as long as a hand-crafted rug made with first-class materials. Consider buying a rug like buying a pair of shoes: would you rather pay more money now and have a product that will last longer, or save a bit in the short-term but know you will need a new rug in a few years?
