Authentic Handmade Oriental Rug

real

Not all Persian or oriental rugs stack up together. If you want to maximize the originality and value of your decoration, a handmade Persian or Oriental rug is always the best choice – these pieces have durability, charm, and investment value. Here are some tips to help you determine authentic Handmade Oriental Rug.

Inspecting the back of the Rug or Carpet

Check for unevenness in the colored knots in the back of rug. You should see uneven areas thicker than others. Look at the weave at the back of the rug. Look for blue, red, or white horizontal lines of foundation threads. These threads are named Weft Threads – you might see wefts moving only about an inch and then covered by wool knots – but they have to be horizontal to the rug’s fringe.

No handmade rugs have any backing on it – whether it’s rubber or another synthetic material. Handmade rugs additionally never have the fringe sewn directly onto the rug.

Persian Rugs

 History of Persian Rugs

Historical records document the notable role Persian rugs and textiles  played as commodities in the international marketplace. As the interests of European and Eastern countries shifted towards trade and economic expansion, textiles became major boons for solidifying local luxury economies.

During the 15-1600s, raw silk and finely woven textiles were a major source of income for the Persian crown; the consistent stability of this market was disrupted by intense European competition in the 1700s- where extreme European export disrupted the international trade market. Over time, finished carpets replaced raw textiles as the major profit-drawing export, and European investors heavily increased commercial production of carpets in the East to meet demand – these are the Persian rugs most commonly familiar today.
