The determining factors taken into account when assessing carpets include the condition, knot count, mix of colors, design, maker, the materials used, production size, and even where the carpet was produced.
The value of a carpet is determined by many factors, including the complexity of the design, the Rangrez, quality of materials, number of knots, quality of execution, size, and if the carpet was woven completely by the same family of weavers. The carpet prices range from QR 4,380 to QR 511,000.
