Maloumian Oriental Rugs Proposes a Guide to Judging Oriental Rugs


Philadelphia, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/15/2016 -- Before rug buyers are intent on making a purchase, it is imperative to cover all of the bases. With information and knowledge backing a purchase, any buyer will feel a sense of resolution in their important decision. When it comes to floor art like Oriental rugs, there are many facets to explore before investing blindly in one. Maloumian Oriental Rugs, a leader in Oriental rug cleaning in Wayne, PA, suggests some helpful tips and guidelines for judging the quality of any rug.

Is the rug machine or handmade? As a buyer, it is necessary to inspect if the fringe is sewn on or woven. If it is sewn on, the rug is most definitely machine made. Another important quality to look for in a rug is its wool quality. Down to the breed of sheep, what they eat, drink, and the altitude from which they are raised can all be determining factors of a quality rug. By feeling the wool, a buyer can distinguish if it is dry or crisp, alerting them of dead wool or "tabatchi." This wool will not last and should be avoided at all costs.

There are many other attributes to look for before purchasing a quality rug. Aspects like knot counts determine the quality and time it took to make as well as design. Pile density and thickness can determine its longevity. Damage and assessing dry rot is another thing to look for in order to make sure the "new" rug is in fact in tiptop shape. Lastly, the color; a rug buyer must be confident on the color they chose. If it is not pleasing to the eye or in correlation to their home's palette, it can be a devastating realization.
