Identifying a Authentic Persian and Oriental Handmade Rug
On the market today there are several machine made rugs that mimic the designs of Persian and Oriental rugs, but lack the quality, durability, workmanship and aesthetic beauty of a genuine Persian or Oriental handmade rug. Genuine Persian and Oriental rugs take several years to create by master weavers that have been perfecting the art throughout the generations. To qualify as an authentic handmade Persian or Oriental rug the rug must meet the following requirements:
 

o Must be hand woven
 

o Must of Originated from one of the following regions: Persia (Iran), China, Afghanistan, Turkey, Tibet, Nepal, Egypt, India, Pakistan.
 

o Design and Composition follows ancestral patterns.
 

Handmade vs. Machine‐Made Rugs
As mentioned earlier, there are many machine made replicas of Persian and Oriental rugs on the market today. So you may ask why buy a handmade rug? The simple answer is quality and aesthetic beauty. But, lets get into some detail
 

• Machine made rugs do not nearly have the durability as a handmade Persian or Oriental rug, which can last many generations. The reason for this durability is that handmade rugs are made of natural occurring organic materials such as silk, natural wools, and vegetable dyes. Each handmade rug has individual knots that have been integrated into the loom (the foundation of the rug) ensuring that it will not shed with usage. Unlike machine‐made rugs that use synthetic material and chemical dyes that will fade and deteriorate with age.
 

• Handmade rugs are one of a kind and there are no two pieces exactly alike compared to a machine made rug that comes off an assembly line.
 

• The beauty of a handmade rug can not be replicated by machine made processes. This ancient art of creating a handmade rug has been perfected over the years. Special secrete dying recipes and designs have been passed from generation to generation.
 

• Handmade rugs are used as investments since their value appreciates with age unlike a machine made rug that depreciates in value with age.
 

• Handmade rugs have a history and origin dating back thousands of years.
 

Identifying a Handmade Rug from a Machine Made Rug
Quick Check
 

o Knott: Flip over the rug and if it’s a handmade rug the loops will be clearly visible.
 

o Fringe: Look at the fringe if it’s sewn on therefore it’s most likely a machine made rug. Handmade rugs on the other hand have there fringe going down the foundation of the rug.
 

o Flexibility: Handmade rugs can be folded and will not crack. Most machine made rugs will crack.
 

Selecting the Perfect Rug‐ The Different Variables to Consider
 

Shape
Determine if you are looking for a runner (best for long hallways), round, square, or a rectangular rug.
 

Size
Determine the size you need:
When measuring your space you want to take into consideration the relation of your furniture to the rug when determining the amount of floor you want to cover. Once you have measured the amount of space that you wish to cover the best method is to look at the standard sizes of handmade rugs and see which standard rug size fits the closest. Take into consideration that handmade rugs can be a few inches long or short in length or width since they are not made by machine processes.
 

Standard Sizes:
Small Rugs
2 x 3

Medium Rugs

Large Rugs

Color
Determine the colors you need
When choosing the colors of your handmade rug the optimal method of décor is to choose the handmade rug first since it is one of a kind and echo the colors in your home décor. But, this is seldom the case so therefore when choosing the colors in your handmade rug the best method is to look at samples from your cushions, paint, wallpaper, bedspread, and curtains and to pick and choose the colors that you want to be echoed in the rug.
 

Design
Look at the designs available in your colors and size
The designs available in Oriental and Persian rugs are unlimited do to the uniqueness of each piece because each piece is unique these handmade rugs are named by the city they where made in. But, we at OrientalPersianRug.com have even simplified this process by narrowing down these 1000s of designs into 4 categories: Contemporary, Floral, Geometric, and Pictorial.
 

Materials
Make sure the materials are of utmost quality
The materials used in a Persian or Oriental Rugs determine its value and longevity. Persian and Oriental Rugs are made of all‐natural fibers such as wool, cotton and silk.
 

Wool is the most widely used and resilient material used in Persian and Oriental rugs. But, not all wools are created equal in these rugs. The highest quality wools are sheered once a year from the sheep during spring time while the lesser quality wools are sheered many times a year from the sheep so they are of lesser quality and luster.
 

Cotton is used usually as the foundation of handmade rugs because it is strong, doesn’t lose its shape and can be spun into strands thin enough to allow fine weaving.
 

Silk is the finest material of which a rug can be woven. Silk can be used exclusively in the rug so therefore the rug is purely silk or it can be used with a combination of wool where the silk outlines the motifs.
 

Rests assure that OrientalPersianRug.com  specializes in only the highest quality materials on the market today.
 

Price/Value
When choosing the amount you want to spend for a handmade rug make sure to determine an ideal price range that is within your budget. Also remember price has a strong correlation with the quality, age, and materials used. Antique and semi antique rugs are highly prized and higher grade wools and higher percentages of silk in handmade rugs increase the value of the piece. Also when buying a handmade rug one has to take into consideration the difficulty of the design, the countless hours taken into knotting the piece.
 

Where to Buy your Handmade Rug

General Care of Your Handmade Rug
Once you purchase your handmade rug from us here is some helpful hints
 

The Wonders of Wool
 

Oriental and Persian Rugs are generally made of wool and are easily and economically maintained. Rugs of wool are extremely durable and consistently out‐perform other materials. Unlike other fibers, wool is much more resilient, cleans better and stays clean longer.
 

Cleaning
Your trusted professional Persian and Oriental rug cleaners will insure a skilled cleaning that brings out the richness of color and softness of the wool. Depending on the amount of traffic, a professional washing is recommended every three to six years for the cleaning of your Persian and Oriental rug.
 

Rotation
To insure even wear, your rug should be rotated once a year. Depending on the traffic, the rotation may vary from six months to two years.
 

Vacuuming
Persian and Oriental rugs, like most rugs should be vacuumed on a regular basis to remove dirt and restore life to the fiber. Be sure not to vacuum the fringe.
 

Padding
A quality pad used under your rug helps protect it from dirt, wear and slippage. We will be happy to provide you with the correct padding.
 

Restoration
In case of damage, just about any problem has a solution with a professional restoration. Old and antique rugs sometimes need to be rewoven where worn and restored to life. Newer rugs rarely in need of repair. An experienced professional must always be consulted in these matters.
