EACH Essential Element MUST BE Multiplied by a special MULTIPLIER for each Element....Knot Density x 11, Material Used x 7, Design Elements x 6, Colors, Blending, and Dye types x 5, Age x 3, Condition of Rug x 2, Demand and Availability x 2. Take all these new multiplied figures and add them all together. You must then take this total new point figure of all the Essential Elements and multilpy this new number by the CMF. This new figure should give you the retail price per square foot. What's My Oriental Rug Worth?
