Handmade carpets and rugs are known by different names like an Oriental rug, Persian rugs, Indian rugs just because of handmade rugs are woven worldwide. Handmade area rug is used since a long time. The designs of these carpets have been originated from the different countries like Persia, Iran, Afghanistan, India etc.
In India, Kashmir is the most popular place for handmade area rugs. They make very beautiful hand-knotted Kashmir silk carpets and sell around the world. Kashmir silk carpet is known for its complex designs and best quality material. Nowadays there are many stores where you can buy a handmade area rug for your home but buying a hand-knotted carpet is not an easy task because it means to spend a lot of money.
Do you know that why a handmade rug is an expensive accessory and why it is difficult to find super quality carpet?
I am going to tell you….
If you don’t have much knowledge about handmade area rug then you can never know the difference between a machine made carpet and handmade carpet or a pure silk carpet and artificial silk rug only by seeing it. All carpets look like same but there is a huge difference between weaving process and durability of a carpet. So many companies sell their artificial silk and charge as a pure silk. It means a carpet which price is $300 carpet sell as a pure silk and pay $3000.
There is a huge difference between prices. Handmade area rug is woven on a handloom and operated by hand. There is no electricity is needed. Weaving a hand-knotted carpet is a time-consuming process. It takes many months to weave a single area rug. This is woven in a natural material and by using vegetable dye. A handmade rug is not harmful to baby and pet. It is a highly durable rug. That’s why it is expensive.
