Antique & Semi Antique Rugs: Own a Piece of Timeless Artistry

Rug Patterns - Tradition meets Passion

Dive into the world of oriental rugs and discover the arts and crafts of the Orient. Each pattern resembles a painting and is unique in itself. The pattern is the most significant characteristic of an oriental rug, it combines the tradition of the knotting province and the passion of the weaver. Thus, a rug from the Orient embodies the soul of the weaver and the norms and values of the province. A weaver spends up to four years on a specimen. The weavers receive a design template typical for the province, which they follow. This design template is usually used only once and then varied. In the countryside, nomadic rugs are knotted without a template, but the designs of neighboring villages are similar. In these cases, the rugs are similar in color and pattern.

Rug Production - A closely linked network

Conventional antique oriental rugs are hand-knotted and originate mainly from the ancient Orient. Therefore, these rugs are often called Persian rugs.

Rug Material - The advantages of natural fibers

Classic antique rugs are usually made of natural fibers. Natural fibers are divided into plant and animal fibers. In the vast majority of cases, virgin wool is used, which is supplied from local production sites. This means that all stakeholders involved benefit from the region. The processed virgin wool is odorless and has a high-fat content. This makes the rugs resistant and durable. The processed natural fibers ensure a balanced indoor climate and can also be combined with underfloor heating. In addition to virgin wool, other natural yarns such as cork wool, cotton, or silk are used.

Rug colors - The transformation of colors

An antique oriental rug is rich in colors and nuances. Colorful rugs in orange, red or green fit into almost any interior, whether classic and oriental or modern and simple.

Handmade rugs need to be exposed to the sun for more than a month to fade sufficiently. This time is usually not observed in the supply chain, so it is not a miracle that the rugs fade in your home. To ensure even fading, the rug should be rotated every two years. Thus, in individual cases, the rug will get the final color only after ten years.

Rug shape - The right cut for every interior

Handmade rugs come in all conventional shapes. The most common are rectangular rugs. Two specifications of rectangular rugs are square rugs and narrow long rugs, called rug runners. Round rugs and oval rugs, on the other hand, are much rarer.

Rug Pattern - Detailed and unique

The patterns reveal the precise workmanship of the rug weavers. The careful handwork and the age of these rugs are what makes an antique oriental rug so valuable. Each pattern is unique in itself and yet there are affinities within a rug family. Antique oriental rugs make plain, modern interiors, look more vibrant because of the variety of their colors and patterns, creating a cozier atmosphere.

Living - rugs are an enrichment for every home

Antique oriental rugs cut a good figure in any room. The timeless oriental design survives the trend of any age. They can be laid out in almost any room, whether in the bright living room or in the cozy bedroom. Even stains do not bother them. The fantastic patterns make minor stains look invisible. Unlike coarse deep-pile rugs, such as shaggy rugs, antique oriental rugs are very fine and short piled, which allows these rugs to be added to your own walls as valuable pieces.

Bring oriental culture to your home and appreciate the creativity and years of diligence of the weavers.

Antique oriental rugs are valuables from the ancient Orient. These rugs have survived many years and have not lost their shine over time. With regular care and cleaning, the rugs can last for many more years. In addition, they are relatively stable in price and have little loss in value.
