About Our Rugs
Are the colors in online images a true representation of the original product?
The images displayed on our site have the most accurate colors that we can display through digital media.
Note: The variations in colors may occur with handmade items since they are a work of local craftsmen. Some patterns may lose their definition with size.
Why are the rug cover and rag pad different in sizes?
Our Rug Pads are intended to be slightly smaller than our Rug Covers for ease of assembly and to remain out of view.
Where are RugKnots rug covers made?
Our rug covers are made in the USA with imported material.
Is the variation in product dimension a manufacturer defect? The variations in product size are not a manufacturer defect. Since we obtain rugs from different vendors to provide you with the best quality product; you may notice a change in product dimension up to 3-5%. We promise it is nothing you need to worry about.
