The Material used in the making 

The quality of material used in production decides the price. Amer rugs skilled workers use the finest quality material in manufacturing good quality rugs. Many times you find that rugs with similar looks and designs have different prices. The material used in the manufacturing plays an important role because the material decides the durability, comfort, and ease to clean factors of the final product.

Amer Rugs never compromise with the quality and material as we try to manufacture the best masterpiece rugs. 


One of the most common materials used in the making of rugs is wool. It’s naturally renewable, long-lasting, and strong and will last almost a lifetime in the same quality, color and pattern. Wool rugs have a very luxurious texture and give maximum comfort to your feet in comparison to synthetic materials and they are a little more expensive than others. 


Silk natural fiber is another material used in making rugs and carpets which gives durability and a luxury feel to the rugs. Silk rugs have been in the world since ancient times. Silk and a combination of silk and wool were also used in the famous Persian and oriental rugs. Silk gives a shiny texture to the rugs that give a luxurious feeling from every inch of it.  Silk rugs require expert cleaning and are not fit for places filled with kids, pets, and places with heavy foot traffic. 

Hemp and Jute:

These materials are mainly used in combination and made for high foot traffic areas and busy homes. They are mostly used in the making of Dhurries and flatweave rugs and aren’t that expensive. 


Nylon is an artificial alternative to natural fibers like wool and silk. It’s durable and versatile, and it’s both kid and pet-friendly and can bear high foot traffic but it has its downsides too. It absorbs more water and can be damaged by some accidental spills. 


Polyester rugs are stain-resistant and don’t react to spills as badly as nylon rugs. But, they are also less durable and very short life span as compared to nylon. The polyester loses its grip and falls apart much quicker and easier after some time 

The Methods used in making of Rugs:

We all know that handmade products need more skills, time, and expertise as compared to machine-made products. The same applies to rugs. The hand-knotted rugs, which are fully made by hands by weaving each knot in specific designs, take more time than others which makes it expensive. The hand-tufted rugs are made partially by hand and partially by using machines and it takes less time and skill than hand-knotted rugs. 

The Amer Rugs highly skilled workers ensure that every knot is safe and secure so that the rugs last more than decades. The hand-knotted rugs are expensive as it takes more time for skilled workers in making that one piece of art. 

A rug isn’t just a piece of fabric that we lay in our living room and bedrooms. Every hand-knotted rug tells us the story of the weaver, the designer’s personality, and the journey of making the rug. The price of the rug depends on the quality of material used and the time it took to complete one rug. The higher the knot density, the more time went into making one rug and the price decided after that. Rugs with more knots give a shinier look.
