Frequently Asked Questions
What Differentiates a Traditional Area Rug From Other Types of Rugs?
When talking of area rugs, traditional rugs are usually easily distinguishable from other types of rugs, such as modern or contemporary rugs. One of the biggest differences between these types of rugs is the design or patterns used on them.
Traditional rugs do not conform to the free form, geometrics, or abstract styling that is common in other types of area rugs. The origin of the area rug also plays an important role, as traditional area rugs feature the classic designs that are common in Persian and Oriental areas.
In terms of materials, traditional area rugs favor more natural fibers, such as wool, while a contemporary area rug can be made from a wide range of other synthetic materials.
What Are the Common Types of Materials Used To Make Traditional Area Rugs?
If you take a quick look at the traditional rugs we have in stock at Mafi Rugs, you will notice that the bulk of our merchandise is made from premium wool. This dates back to the way rugs were manufactured back in the day.
However, as the styles and designs have evolved along with access to a wider collection of materials, people have begun to move away from vintage materials in favor of other options, such as polyester, polypropylene, viscose, and bamboo silk.
It is mostly the style rather than the material that sets a traditional area rug apart, so many new materials are being experimented on. Click here to learn more about fiber types in our Rugs 101 section.
What Is the Difference Between a Hand-knotted and a Power-loomed Traditional Rug?
A hand-knotted area rug can easily take months to weave, whereas a power-loomed rug of the same style and material can be completed in just a few hours. While power looming has its benefits in terms of mass production, the quality is usually compromised.
As a result, hand-knotted traditional area rugs are considered the best in terms of patterns, styles, and overall quality. This is one reason why they are so expensive compared to other types of rugs.
At Mafi Rugs, we have an extensive collection of vintage traditional area rug options in stock. On our website, you will be able to find great deals on the highest quality hand-knotted area rugs for your dining room.
How Long Do I Have To Wait for My Traditional Wool Rugs To Be Delivered?
We have a quick ship option for all our in-stock traditional area rugs that ensures you will receive your purchases within ten to twelve weeks. Custom styles can take up to 18 weeks or more to deliver, which is something you will have to consider before buying a rug.
The same cannot be said for any out-of-stock items from our collection because it can take much longer than anticipated to manufacture a high-quality traditional-style area rug.
To arrange delivery, simply leave your address and contact details on our page after you have completed your purchase and we will do the rest.
How Do I Choose the Best Traditional Rugs for Living Room Decor From Your Website?
Our traditional area rugs are inspired by the beauty and floral features common with Oriental styles, and will go well with the living room or bedroom decor that is of similar taste.
However, we understand that choosing the perfect styles for your living room rug can be stressful, especially when you are paying a lot of money for hand-knotted traditional area rugs. That is why we offer all our customers the best advice on how to blend their room decor with the right traditional rug style from our stock.
Whether you are looking for beige-colored rugs or you want something with traditional floral features, visit the Mafi Rugs page for the right rug to enhance the look of any room.
Does the Construction Method Used for Traditional Area Rugs Affect the Price?
Yes, a hand-knotted traditional area rug is a lot more expensive than rugs made any other way. This is due to the lengthy and difficult process of weaving intricate design patterns into a single rug by hand while making sure that the result not only looks good but is long-lasting too.
However, if you are looking for an affordable traditional rug for your room, check out the many rug options we have in stock. Visit Mafi Rugs today for the best rug to bring soft warmth to your home.
