The best handmade rugs are "Art Underfoot". With that being said, Karastan machinemade rugs (I have 2)will last longer and have better colors and designs than a lot of handmade rugs. I have yet to see an ugly Karastan rug, but I have seen hundreds of ugly handmade rugs. However, I have seen many handmade rugs that make the heart skip a beat. :love:

I inherited a lovely Karastan multi-panel from my mother's house, and despite the preponderance of other more expensive handmade rugs she had (a few of which I gave away to guys in the area who could appreciate their value), the Karastan is still my favorite.

What's the benefit of an original oil painting compared to a print? The original is a work of art, at least in someone's eyes.

Of course, it depends on the skill of the artist. I could do an oil painting that had less value than the blank canvas. Prints or reproductions are only made of the more popular patterns.
