Oriental Rugs Care & Cleaning
Since the 1880s, people have collected fine Oriental rugs. Here is a small sample of rug styles from several Oriental cultures:
Persian – Iran is still the world’s largest exporter of fine Oriental rugs. Persian rugs have dated from 2,500 BC. There are 64 classifications of Persian rugs based on the rug’s artistic design, the fabric of the foundation and weave, and classification of weaving technique.
Arabian – The Arab world is another culture that honors rug making. Most frequently, weavers in Arabia use sheep’s wool. They also use material such as goat or camel hair.
Anatolian – Marco Polo first described Anatolian, or Turkish, rugs in 1272. These rugs are distinctive in their diversity, since their nomadic travels led to distinctive styles.
Tibetan – Traditionally, weavers make these rugs from Tibetan highland sheep’s wool, called changpel. Tibetans use these rugs for wall hangings to horse saddles, in addition to flooring.
