  • Juh H. left this review: “Are you still browsing in the Internet for a perfect website that could offer the best area rug for your place? Well then, guys the search is over now; take it from me because I have been into that situation already, endlessly looking for the right rug that goes well with my taste and space. It was a big waste of time and money. I suggest you go right away to the most reviewed and tested store, Natural Area Rugs, or better yet, visit their site, NaturalAreaRug.com they provide the highest quality rugs that look so luxurious but are available within your means. NAR even offers great deals, often on free shipping or certain discounts on selected items. I myself benefited from it, when I bought one contemporary rug of “Four Seasons Seagrass rug” from them and I was so much satisfied with my new floor covering. I will never change my choice of store; NAR is where my heart is.”

As you can see, people who get their custom area rugs from us here at Natural Area Rugs are completely happy with the service they get as well as with the quality of the rugs.

Things to Look for with Antique Area Rugs

You can easily tell which rugs were made by a machine and which ones were made by hand.  A handmade rug will have a design that you will be able to see on both sides.  They will also have knots in the back of them that may have gotten flattened out over the years.  Also, there is no standard size for antique rugs so each rug will be absolutely unique.

Typically, you will find that antique rugs have been made from eco – friendly and renewable materials such as cotton, silk or wool.  Sisal rugs are also great.  The colors that have a tendency to fade quickly are reds and yellows.  This means that if an area rug has bright, vivid reds and/or yellows, it is not antique.  Also, check the amount of knots on the back of it.  More knots means that the quality and weaving are better.

Stay away from rugs that are dry, that crack when they are bent or appear to have been repaired.  An antique area rug should feel soft.  They will not have any sort of backing.  Machine made rugs and reproductions will have a backing.

Keep in mind that antique are rugs will be more costly when they are handmade as opposed to being machine made or a reproduction.  In order to find antique area rugs that are authentic, you should consider working with a rug appraiser who has been certified.  These appraisers have a code of ethics that means that they will give you feedback that is honest which will enable you to make a buying decision that is sound.
