Area Rugs

AREA RUGS:

Weaving Oriental Rugs has been a way of life for a large part of the world. From the exotic land of eastern Asia to the remote Caucasian village of southern USSR, the ancient craft of hand knotting carpets has been handed down for thousands of years. Persian rugs are popular in the well-designed homes of today, keeping rug prices on an upward trend. When purchasing Handmade Rugs, the materials used, the pile material, and the dye quality must be considered. Silk, wool, and cotton yarns must be evaluated for quality and evaluated for the use of natural dyes versus synthetic dyes, as natural is always preferred. Age also, affects the value of rugs. Antique rugs most often tend to be greater in value.

ORIENTAL RUGS:

We have Area Rugs that come from all over the world such as: Egypt, Caucasus (part of Russia), Europe ( Aubusson, Tapestry, Needlepoint and hooked carpets), and Navaho( Native American Weaved Kilims). Furthermore, handmade rugs weaved in Asia can come from Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Turkey, India, or China. Antique rugs coming from this part of the world are better in quality due to the following reasons:
. The Amazing Quality that the wool bears
. The Weaving Knowledge of the people from this part of the world in rugs
. The technique they use to dye the wool using vegetables.
Furthermore, a strong emphasis has been placed on the quality of Persian Rugs which are known to last centuries and are noted to bring character, a dependable virtue, and uniqueness to your home.

HANDMADE RUGS:

You might wonder why these carpets are made. The answer is because Iranian magicians will not fly most of the (unreal) carpets that overwhelm our apartments and homes today. Seriously, we need to point out what is considered to be a real Oriental Rugs. Real area rugs are made from wool and are created by the patient hands of women from these countries. The accentuation of this statement is not as much stressed at women from these countries as at hands for these rugs have one feature that no machine can replicate. It has a complete form made with character and precision, an unrepeatable texture, and a unique material. In technical terms describing an element of facture, the real carpet's pile is fixed on the base threads with a tied knot, which can not be done by a machine but by human fingers. The pile of a machine-made rug is simply stuck between the base and the wefts. Wouldn't you consider a rug that is thoroughly hand-knotted and tied a real rug versus something that is simply stuck for construction? Furthermore, in reference to what a real carpet consists of, Persian Rugs and Antique Rugs almost never woven with any synthetic material which is used in the machine-made carpets.

ANTIQUE RUGS:

According to scientific evidence, the art of carpet weaving has existed in Iran since ancient times. Area Rugs have not only existed within the 19th and 20th centuries but also milleniums ago. One piece of evidence found is what is known as the Pazyric carpet. Scientific experts claim that it dates back to 500 B.C. during the Achaemenid period. In general, the art of weaving has underwent many changes in various eras of Iranian history due to the upward trend that came about before the Islamic era until the Mongols invasion of Iran. After the invasion, weaving Persian rugs began to grow again during the reign of the Mongol dynasties of Timurid and Ilkhanid. With the passage of time, the materials used in Handmade Rugs , including wool and cotton, decay. As a result, archaeologists are rarely able to make any particularly useful discoveries during archaeological excavations of Oriental Rugs. What has remained from early times as evidence of rug weaving is nothing more than a few pieces of worn-out carpets. Such fragments do not help very much in recognizing the carpet-weaving characteristics of the pre-Seljuk period (13th and 14th centuries AD) in Iran.

PERSIAN RUGS

Handmade rugs have been a tradition for over 2500 years. Area Rugs are a new flower blossoming from one of the biggest branches of an ancient and colorful yet damaged tree that portrays the Iranian culture . These people are very tradition-oriented and this characteristic can be seen in the way that they weave carpets. Each village or city in Iran has an ancient and traditional rug pattern that has been maintained in that region for centuries and sometimes millenniums. The distinct designs of each city are particular to that city alone and although famous designs have been imitated elsewhere in the country a few times , they have never been duplicated. Iran is also the place where many other styles are made, such as Turkish, Caucasian, Armenian, Kazak, Afghanistan and India. This is a dense chapter in the book of Iran's culture because it visually shows the greatest obsessions of the Iranian culture, which are the beauty of nature, literature, and true love. These are what make these oriental rugs one of the most prestigious things to be placed in any home. Antique Rugs from this culture inspire those from afar with their amazing designs, colors, and detailed qualities.
