This is a recently made machine made genuine Turkish area rug with polyester & jute pile, which is in new, first quality condition. Machine-Made rugs are the cost effective of all types of carpets - enabling everyone to experience an rug in home. With the help of machines, a single weaver is adequate to producing 35 Sq. yards of rug in a day. Traditionally Machine-Made rugs have not been considered suitable for long-term use, this however, is changing with better quality materials being used. This innovation combined with quick production time & less labor makes it a popular alternate for low-cost home-decor. As these Machine-made carpets are often disguised as hand-made rugs, we want our customers to make an informed purchase. We recommend a rug pad with all machine-made carpets, as they have a very thin lining which can leave the rug slippery.
