    Most machine-made rugs are mass produced and are very color-consistent. The yarns are dyed in huge quantities controlled by computer and dye lot variations are uncommon. Usually, when ordered at the same time, machine made rugs would match.

Generally speaking, the price difference reflects the difference in quality, appearance and longevity of the rug.
