(What Is Oriental Carpet) . To be classified as a true oriental rug a carpet must be hand knotted and come from any
of the traditional carpet producing countries of the world. This includes Persians, Indians, Kashmiris, Pakistani, Afghani and a host of other styles.
Oriental rugs or oriental Carpets are different from all others in that their pile (usually wool) is tied to their foundations.
That is why they are referred to as hand-knotted rugs, and that more than anything, accounts for why they last so long—often
50-80 years in use. This also accounts for their expense. Carpet making has also historically evolved as an Art form and as with
other art form the value and beauty remains subjective.

A change in color in the field or border of a rug is called an ‘Abrash’. The color change extends across the rug,
left to right, following a weft yarn and this is due to differences in wool or dye batches used in the weaving of
Rather than being seen as a flaw an Abrash is appreciated by carpet lovers as a testament of handwork.
It is a misnomer that all oriental rugs are unreasonably expensive. If you are on a budget you could still
buy a great carpet. Consider selecting pieces that are newer and factor in raw material and labor costs.
Silk yarn is most expensive than wool, and silk carpets also require more time and skill to weave because
of the more intricate patterns.
Manufacture time would depend on carpet size and intricacy. A small (3’ x 5 ’ feet’s) rug could take a person
several months to make, while a medium-sized rug (5’ x 8’ feet’s) could take a person or persons a year.
Some of the museum quality Antique pieces or the very intricate silk masterpieces could take Several years.

made to weather; they’re made to endure high traffic and wear and tear that is why they last for decades.

easy to clean and maintain.
All our carpets/rugs are manufactured using natural dyes (insect and vegetable) and natural fibers (wool, silk and cotton);
they should not cause or aggravate allergies. If you’re sensitive to dust, the regular vacuuming or brushing of carpets
should allay those concerns.
Most items commonly found in a household or business ( i.e. tables, chairs, couches) can be placed on carpets.
Items should be periodically moved forward and back over the course of a year to prevent any uneven crushing
of the carpet’s pile. Plants should never be placed on top of the carpet, even with a water basin beneath the pot.

they can vary in their dimensions by a few feet or inches.

Hand-Tufted Rugs: These rugs are woven using a distinctive tool known as a tufted gun. Quite frequently individuals fail to differentiate between hand-knotted rugs and tufted rugs due to their similar appearance. The noticeable distinction, though, is the acrylic canvas on the back of the tufted couch.
Hand-Woven Rugs: These types of rugs are finely woven with thousands of tiny knots, following an elaborate pattern. Commonly, silk and wool fibres are used to knit these knotted rugs. In monetary terms, these rugs are expensive but are worth every penny, because of their craftsmanship.
