by Ismail Rayan

A Beautiful, hand knotted handmade Moroccan rug is Hand Knotted in Morrocan with 100% Natural wool materials. This rug is always in New, High Quality condition. the main color is Multi-colored.

The first Moroccan rug I bought was a pink Berber rug which had been made in my home country of Morocco. I really like it! The color was deep and was made out of natural cotton, which blended well with the pink. I also had a blue Moroccan rug which was handmade with silver thread. The texture was very smooth and the colors blend together very well.

There are several factors to consider when buying a hand woven Moroccan rug. These are the quality of the fabric, the age of the rug and the actual age of the person who actually created it. All of these things can be determined by the actual artwork in the rug.

Different styles can be recognized from a picture of the rug online or in a show case. If you have ever seen a hand-knotted carpet it is mostly a square shape with four equal sides. Most handmade rugs follow this basic shape with a few variations. If a person is searching for an actual handmade Moroccan rug, they need to know the different styles. This can be determined by looking at the artwork or even visiting a show case where the rugs are on display.

The age of the person creating the rug is an important factor in determining the value. When you purchase a handmade rugs, you are usually not looking for a bargain. The value of the handmade Moroccan rug depends more on how good of a craftsmanship the rug was, how long it has been in existence and the culture of the people who made it.

Silk rugs in particular are highly valued in the middle east because they are very rare. There are some countries that only produce silk rugs and there are many who only make cotton rugs. Moroccan rugs and other kinds of handmade Moroccan rugs are highly valued throughout the world because they are made with true craftsmanship and a true sense of beauty. The artwork on the rugs is something that can't simply be duplicated and usually goes back hundreds of years so they are extremely valuable.
