Persian rugs are an investment!

It might not be my dream kitchen, but it feels so much fresher than it did with what we were able to do on a $500 budget!
There are four main types of rugs, machine made, hand knotted, flat weave/hand woven, and hand tufted. Here is how you can tell the difference between handmade rugs and machine made rugs.
