An Oriental rug is an authentic piece of art. The centerpiece to any room, these
handmade rugs draw the eye and make a dramatic statement. Timeless in their elegance, classic in their style,
a true Oriental carpet is always tasteful. An Oriental rug is not just a fashionable adornment in your home,
it will become a treasured family heirloom that is passed from one generation to the next if it receives the
proper loving care.
The term “Oriental rug” truly only applies to those carpets which are entirely hand
woven or hand knotted. The time and craftsmanship devoted to these pieces is remarkable. They may be created in
many diverse areas of the world including China, Turkey, and India. There are several different subdivisions of
Oriental rugs, but they are generally classified by where their maker resides and each region where they are
produced has their own unique style.
One well known subdivision is the Persian carpet. Produced mainly in what is now
known as Iran, examples of these carpets have been found which date back to ancient times. Today, these carpets
still enjoy a robust popularity. They are most often made of wool, although silk has also been used since the 16th
century. Wool carpets tend to be the more resilient choice, and many people choose to hang silk carpets on a wall,
displayed as a work of art.
Nepal, India, and Tibet are all exporters of Tibetan rugs. These rugs are typically
made from sheep’s wool, and once again, hand knotting is the true hallmark of these authentic Oriental rugs. The
unique, ancient techniques used to produce these rugs is unlike the process of rug making anywhere else in the
world, making Tibetan rugs a valuable addition to your home’s décor.
No matter the origin or design of your Oriental rug, taking proper care of this work
of art is not to be taken lightly. Your Oriental rug is a one of a kind original, painstakingly handcrafted by an
artisan, and it deserves care and treatment in line with this heritage. It is only through the proper cleaning and
maintenance of your Oriental rug that you will be able to enjoy its use for the rest of your life, and pass it on
for the next generation to treasure.
Finding a generic carpet cleaning service is as easy as looking in the local phone
book, but the techniques used by a generic carpet cleaning service are not appropriate for your Oriental rug. The
delicate, hand woven nature of these carpets demands special care in the hands of a professional who appreciates
the unique quality and craftsmanship of your carpet.
Most Oriental rugs are crafted of either wool or silk, and the usual carpet cleaner
found in the phone book may recommend steam cleaning of these articles, however, this is not an appropriate way in
