How to buy
10 Top Tips
''Ironically a good handmade rug can be a similar price or in some cases less that the hyped up 'on trend' rug being sold on various media platforms and online discount sites.''
Just over a decade ago you found hand woven rugs only in dedicated galleries or you purchased one overseas as the ultimate travel trophy.
Today you find them all over the place, and of very very different qualities
Synthetic rugs, machine made rugs and other inferior goods have now moved into the general home decor market and they are sold in almost every shop and to the average person they can look like many of the high quality originals............so how do you avoid making a bad buy ?
There are seemingly endless sources for rugs these days –boutiques, online discount sites, decor retailers and big department stores. However for an authentic hand made rug it is always wise to buy from a dedicated and trusted rug professional who is more interested in the authenticity and quality of the rug rather than a quick sale of a 'hip' rug with a funky tag line.!
