Why Handmade Oriental Carpets are Unique

By Symond Adams Subscribe to RSS | January 21st 2012 | Views:

Handmade oriental carpets are widely used as a major home décor component all around the world. They provide a exclusive visual aspect to the overall interior of your living space. These carpets give a finished look to the décor, making the home appear warm, cosy and complete. Handmade oriental carpets are quite gentle and fragile, which is why their main purpose is to simply adorn your home. They cannot withstand daily wear and tear as they are handcrafted. Place them in living rooms, hallways, dinning rooms, bedrooms, sunrooms, even bathrooms to add an exotic feel and touch.

Individuality of Handmade Oriental Carpets

Typically, handmade oriental carpets are so uniquely designed and made that no two identical carpets can be found anywhere else. The distinctiveness of the handmade carpets is determined by their material, design, origin, dye and, most importantly, craftsmanship. Highly skilled craftsmen design thousands of oriental carpets that are so intricate and artistic yet bearing their own individuality.

Carpets can be categorized as contemporary and traditional. The traditionally designed, or handmade oriental carpets, are costlier. The reason being, the materials used to craft the carpets are more expensive, and craftsmanship immaculate and distinct. This is the main feature of the traditional carpets because they contain designs that are more complex and detailed. Moreover, authentic handmade carpets can be found only in their places of origin.

Types and Origins

Genuine handmade oriental carpets are further classified into Kurdish, Persian, Anatolian, Turkish, Afghan, Arabian, Tibetan and Chinese. As the name suggests, these carpets are manufactured in the country of origin. However, the names of the countries also represent the type of design; a Persian carpet comes with distinct Persian design, although they may not necessarily be made in Persia. Main countries known to produce top quality handmade oriental carpets include India, Iran, Turkey, Vietnam and China.

Shopping For Handmade Carpets

Before buying a handcrafted carpet, consider the colour and size you want for your home. If you want the carpet for your living room, consider the area, its location, if it will cover the floor under the sofa or just the coffee table. Measure the area you want covered; you don’t want the carpet to be disproportional to the size of the room. You can then visit the store or shop online for a carpet of your choice. However, it is advisable to shop for handmade oriental carpets offline to actually touch and feel the carpet to ensure this is what you want.

Carry a picture of the room you want furnished with the carpet. This will give you a better perspective on colours and patterns of the carpets. Keep in mind that handmade oriental carpets are pricey, which is why you need to make sure to put it in an area where it does not experience people walking over it frequently.
