Few points to consider while purchasing oriental rugs:
The Quality of any oriental rug basically depends on four important factors:
raw material, knot, density of pile, and dyes.
•Density, is measured by measuring the number of knots through one square centimeter or inch. The range of knots can
vary in each rug from the minimum of 20, to the maximum of 286 per square centimeter. The knot variation in different
rugs depend on factors such as quality of the raw material, craftsmanship and aim of the weaver. Any increase in knot count
will increase the production cost. Rugs with higher knot counts, cost a fortune and therefore often they are purchased for
investment or collection purposes.
•Natural or synthetic dyes. Natural dyes are extracted from fruit, leaves, or vegetables, but due to high cost not all oriental
rugs are produced from natural dyes. Cheaper rugs are commonly made from artificial dyes such as aniline and chrome colors.
Different rugs for different use. We recommend: for areas that are excessively used Bidjar, Saroug, or Hamadan
like entrances or hallways.
Special rugs, require especial care or maintenance, therefore you shouldn't placed them in areas that are excessively used.
•Natural or synthetic fibers. Exclusive and finer rugs are without exception made from natural fibers such as wool, silk, and cotton.
Machine made or artificial rugs are commonly produced from synthetic fibers.
Best qualities are often produced from natural silk or wool called kork, kork or cork in Persian language means very fine wool.
Vacuum your rugs regularly but never excessively.
If you are vacuuming with a beater brush we suggest setting the brush so it just touches the top of the pile and moves
easily across the rug, avoid the fringes.
If using vacuum with a carpet tool, ease the suction of the vacuum by adjusting it accordingly.
Be sure to periodically vacuum the back of the rug.
Rotate your rugs as often as you possibly can, probably every ½ year or so, is sufficient.
More frequently If you ever notice the high traffic areas are starting to look dirty or the nap has lost its original
look or colors have faded.
Rotating your rug will allow it to wear more evenly, enhancing and preserving the original appearance.
Also, rotate your rugs according to the amount of direct sunlight that they are exposed to. Over time, sunlight can fade the
dyes very rapidly.
Use pad to stabilize and give more protection to your rug.
