Handmade rugs are hand knotted on a foundation composed of warps and wefts. Warps run length ways and wefts runs left to right of the rug.

  • *Look at the back of the rug. Hand knotted rugs will not display the warp yarn while machine made rugs will.
  • *Handmade rugs will often have a woven selvage while machine made rugs do not.
  • *The fringe on hand made rugs will be the continued warp yarns while machine made rugs have a sewn on fringe.
