While area rugs were originally hand-made rugs, the term currently refers to both hand-made and machine-made rugs. Hand-made rugs are the benchmark for the area rug industry. Machine made rugs can imitate the patterns used in the most popular of the hand-made designs, at a much more affordable price. Hand made area rugs are usually made of wool or silk or other natural fibers, while machine-made rugs can be made from both natural and synthetic fibers.
From the name itself, Persian rugs are rugs made in Persia. For people that do not know, Persia is now known as Iran. The history in making this type of rugs goes back to a thousand years of Persian culture and art. This technique of making Persian rugs produces very high quality products with stunning designs. Different regions in Iran also have their different styles in making the Persian rug but overall the results are just pretty much the same.
When it comes to the price of an area rug, machine-made ones are much cheaper compared to hand-woven ones. But hand-woven rugs are much more durable and most people choose to by this type of rug because it is carefully made and crafted by human hands and there is that sense of heart and effort being put on the finished product. There are also a wide variety of material in which these products are made, from the traditional fibers like wool, jute or hemp to the exotic types made of bamboo or sea grass. Each material has its own advantages and disadvantages so if you want to learn more about the materials used, you should do a little more research.
