Should I accept noticeable “flaws” in a hand-made rug?
As with any other hand-made item, hand-knotted rugs are sometimes less than precise and this may add to their appeal. However, what may be a tolerable imperfection to one person may be unacceptable to another. For example, one rug may have crooked edges, white knots or contain areas of abrash. These conditions are not necessarily "flaws", and what may be considered a flaw in one type of rug may be considered characteristic of a different type of rug. Only you can determine whether a rug will be suitable in your home, given any minor imperfections that may exist.
