Q: How do you know the value of  the natural fiber rug you are considering? With wool rugs, you look at the source of the wool and the knots per square inch. But I have seen sisal, jute, and seagrass rugs from national chains like Crate and Barrel and also from high end rugs stores at design centers that look almost identical, but the price point is very different.
