Shopping online?

Safety: You can find thousands of new and old rugs online. Beware of online scams of people paying by checks and never received a product. You never know if the rug posted is real. The product may be completely different than what you ordered.

Type of rug: There are different categories of hand knotted, hand tufted and hand loom rugs. Most rug dealers categorize them as hand knotted rugs. There is a huge price difference between a hand knotted and hand tufted or a hand-loom rug.  Make sure you are paying right money for the right rug.

The smart choice will be to buy a rug from a rug store rather than shopping online if you are a first time buyer.  You can feel the quality and match the colors and sizes with your fabric or floor plan.
