The price depends on several factors. How many knots per inch, the skill of the craftsman as well as the materials used which includes silk and wool as well as cotton: Dyes can be natural or synthetic. For example, a Persian rug with a high knot rate takes much longer to make than one with a low knot rate. A rug with more silk and wool will be more expensive than a rug made primarily with cotton and wool.
