Q1: What makes handmade rugs unique compared to machine-made rugs?

A1: Handmade rugs, often considered pieces of art, are crafted with meticulous attention to detail and tradition. Unlike machine-made rugs, each handmade rug is a unique creation involving skilled craftsmanship. The process uses high-quality materials like wool, silk, or cotton, making these rugs more durable, luxurious, and valuable over time.

Q2: How do I choose the right size rug for my room?

A2: To choose the right size rug, consider the room's layout and the furniture placement.

In living areas, aim for the rug to at least accommodate the front legs of the furniture, creating a cohesive look.
