KNOWING YOUR RUG CONSTRUCTION

The quality of your area rug and the way it looks and feels is not only determined by its fiber, texture and color, but also depends on how your area rug is constructed. Performance value and cost can be determined on whether your area rug is machine-made or handmade. Machine-made area rugs are available in both natural and synthetic fibers while their counterparts handmade area rugs are constructed from using natural materials. Here is a quick overview.
