Like any other home decor stuff carpets & rugs are also available for varying prices in the Indian market depending upon the quality, style & design. Here we will discuss the various factors that determine the final cost of a carpet thereby making it easier for you to select or customize a carpet entirely as per your taste & preference. The main factors involved

The main factors involved in determining a floor carpet’s price are:

  • The type of carpet
  • The type of Fibres (raw materials)
  • The Design
  • The size of carpet


To begin with let’s start with the type of carpets. Floor carpets in India are available in 5 main categories, namely

HAND KNOTTED: Hand knotted carpets are the amalgamation of the best of factors. The finest quality fibres (mainly raw hand spun wool & silk) woven together into an endless series of intricately hand tied knots to create marvellous designs & spectacular looks. These are the most expensive & most durable carpets. Hand knotted rugs are more of an heirloom; something that passes on with generations.

HAND TUFTED: Hand tufted carpets are generally made up of wool, these rugs aren’t as expensive as Hand knotted rugs. A hand tufted rug is created by punching strands of wool on to a canvas frame with help of a hand operated tufting gun. The hand tufted rugs come in a huge variety of designs. These rugs are beautiful to look at & are a pocket friendly option for your home.

HAND WOVEN: Any floor carpet which is woven by hand is a hand woven carpet. These kinds basically include dhurries & kilims. These can be made up of wool, cotton or any synthetic material. These are easy to clean & are durable too. As the construction of hand woven carpets do not involve any strenuous labour & the raw material used isn’t very costly, hence these carpets are available at a very attractive price.

FLAT WEAVE: Flat weaves are a kind of Hand woven carpet, these have no pile hence flat. Flat weave rugs are created by weaving wool through the warp strings. These carpets are reversible & have zero pile. These are most favourable for places with heavy traffic. These carpets are quite reasonable & good looking too.

MACHINE MADE CARPETS: Machine made carpets are generally made with blending wool with synthetic fibres. These carpets are stylish, eye-catchy & very much affordable.


SILK: It is the most delicate & expensive fibre. A lot of care is required in handling & procuring a silk fibre & thereby the use of silk as a raw material increases the price of the rug manifolds.

WOOL: It is the most durable natural fibre. Woollen rugs are comfortable, warm, easy to maintain & expensive too.

Jute: Other natural fibres like jute are also widely used in the Indian market to make carpets. A Jute carpet is low maintenance & is available at a reasonable price.

SYNTHETIC FIBRES: Synthetic fibres like polypropylene, nylon, polyester, acrylic and art silk are majorly used to create machine made carpets. The fibres render a beautiful look to the carpet & are very much in a common man’s budget.

The intricacy of the design of a carpet also determines the cost of the carpet. For instance a hand knotted rug with a complex design & higher kpsi (knots per square inch) will any day cost more than a carpet with simple design & lesser kpsi.

For obvious reasons the size of a carpet does affect the price; the bigger the size, the higher its cost.
