If you want to adorn the floors of your home or office with classically stylish items, Oriental rugs are the perfect choice. They’re objects of hardy elegance that bring grace and comfort to your home and can only increase in value as the years pass. The term 'Oriental rugs' refers to those floorings woven by hand using traditional methods in such countries as Turkey, Uzbekistan, India, Pakistan and China. Wool is the material of choice, however silk was once popular. One distinguishing feature is that their pile is tied to the foundation, a method known as hand knotted rugs. This contributes to their hardiness and longevity.
Traditionally, natural dies were used with these rugs, which resulted in their unique appearance. Nowadays synthetic dyes are also common. Artful choices of dyes infuse Oriental rugs with rich and vibrant hues, such as deep blues, golds, reds and dark earth tones. These help create the air of splendour these rugs display. One item of interest is the kilim. It’s a flat woven rug without pile. Prized by collectors and aficionados for their rare designs and alluring colours, kilims are cheaper and less hardy than regular Oriental rugs.
