Purchase and Invest in Authentic Oriental Rugs

By Cristian Stan Subscribe to RSS | February 8th 2012 | Views:

If you are looking to purchase an original oriental rug, keep in mind that it is not as simple as the purchase of an everyday rug. The style, size, texture and pattern of an oriental rug will generate a completely new look for your home.

Furthermore, people who buy oriental rugs for their collection value some characteristics as a long-term investment. Read on for some simple and valuable tips on how to choose the right oriental rug for your everyday life and also as an investment opportunity.

1. Signed Rugs – As these art works are generally made by illiterate people, it is quite rare to find signed rugs. Still, merchants or companies in charge with the production and distribution of these rugs frequently “sign” the rugs in an attempt to identify the products. Thus, signed rugs are highly valued investments.

2. Go for Natural – The subtle and artistry nature of natural dyes is one a kind and can be never truly replaced by synthetic dyes (which, however, are a lot more stable). Naturally, quality comes with a certain price, as rugs made of natural dyes are more expensive. Luckily, they keep their value in time.

3. Sizing – It doesn’t make much sense to purchase very large rugs as they hardly fit into a regular home. The modern day’s market asks for rugs with reasonable sizes.

4. Washed Rugs – Well, in this country, the bright colors of most authentic oriental rugs were not considered popular and thus, quite often, they were simply washed to get rid of those bright colors. As a result, unwashed rugs are extremely valued as they represent the unique artistry and splendor of the original work.

5. Cleaning and Maintenance – There are only a few things that influence more the appeal and value of an oriental rug than the cleaning and maintenance that has been performed over the years. The right cleaning and maintenance of an oriental rug requires special knowledge on the weaving and construction technique and also on the dyes in order for the rug to maintain its original splendor.
