Unlike any machine made rug, a good hand made Oriental rug will prove to be an excellent investment, providing
good care is taken of it. Obviously one should never buy anything purely in the hope that it will appreciate in value,
but should the time come when you fancy a change, selling should not leave you too much out of pocket, and may
even provide a profit, should a reasonable time have elapsed, as rug prices are constantly on the rise. So, compared
to a fitted carpet, which has no resale value, or a machine made one, however attractive, which will be devalued
from the minute it's bought, an Oriental rug will always be the wiser purchase.
