Texture of the rug plays an important role while choosing a contemporary rug and you should feel happy and satisfied when you rub your hands on the surface of the new rug. Contemporary rugs are manufactured by hand and machine all over the world using the traditional patterns and designs. Machine made rugs do not have any knots and the threads are looped with latex which hardens when it cools. They have a uniform and static design and the structure is identical from one end to the other. Handmade rugs differ due to tension on the wool as people make knots with the hand and the sides will be irregular and imperfect. People can differentiate between the handmade rug and machine made rug just by looking at the back.
