The Difference Between Hand Knitted Rugs and Machine Made Rugs
With the technological advances machine made rugs have started to closely resemble handmade rugs and as a customer one has to identify the difference in both as the cost will vary significantly. Machine- made rugs could be made in matter or hours or days, as to handmade rugs could take years depending on the size and complexity.
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.
