Defining Persian/Oriental Rugs
term Oriental/Persian Rug originally described hand-knotted pile rugs
woven in Asia and the Near East. Now it describes hand-knotted pile
rugs, where ever made, plus flat-woven rugs of Asia and the Near East.
rugs are hand-knotted and have a pile. The exceptions are flatweaves
such as kilims and soumaks which have neither a pile nor knots. An
Oriental/Persian rug with a pile has the same design on the back as it
has on the front and has uneven edges. Each dot of colour on the back
generally represents a knot. The back of a machine-made rug has a
shadowy pattern and very straight sides. In Persia weaving is ranked alongside painting, architecture, sculpture and ceramics. It is also Persia's biggest export.
Persian Oriental rugs are considered to be of the highest quality for both hand-knotted and hand-woven rugs.
A brief introduction to the making of hand knotted Persian rugs from the fine city pieces to the tribal and village carpets. The crafts men and women that make the hand knotted oriental rugs are using skills that have been handed down generation after generation. These skills determine the fine quality of a finished oriental rug. Here we will briefly explore some of the techniques used to produce the different rugs.
Where are Persian/Oriental Rugs made
The term "Persian Rugs" applies
to all hand knotted Rugs produced in Iran. The majority of oriental
rugs, among them the finest of their kind, come from Iran. Persian and
all other oriental rugs - apart from kelims - consist of three
elements, warp, pile and weft.
How are Persian/Oriental Rugs made Persian
rugs comprise three main elements: the warp, the pile, and the weft.
The warp refers to the threads that run the length of the rug. During
manufacture these threads are stretched parallel between the two
horizontal beams of the loom. Usually cotton is used for the warp,
although nomadic oriental rug makers often use wool. With pure silk
carpets, the warp is also made from silk thread.

degrees. Consider swapping rugs from one room to another. This may just

to the fibers. Be sure not to vacuum the loose fringe. Vacuum both the
face and the back of your rug. Vacuuming is the best way to clean a
rug: hanging it outside and banging it with a broom or stick will
eventually ruin it.
Be sure to use a rug cleaning expert for
professional cleaning, especially deep cleaning. Professional carpet
cleaning increases the life of the carpeting and improves air quality,
reducing allergies and illness.
As a rug buyer you must keep certain things in mind to get the service you expect from your selection: Always lay rugs or carpets on smooth surfaces. Cut
loose yarns or tufts even with the rest of the pile. Never pull them,
as they would have escaped the shearing of the pile in the factory. Have holes and tears repaired promptly and by a professional. Be aware that the first few cleanings of machine made rugs with cut pile surfaces will produce large rolls of fluff.

mat in front of the door to stop dirt from being tracked inside of the
