Oriental Carpets have been collected for more than five hundred years for reasons relating to power, prestige, wealth, holiness and more recently, art. These reasons have changed little over the years and in recent times, interest in the field has exploded! In addition to their utilitarian and symbolic functions, carpets of a certain “pedigree” have been considered as great works of art and this appears to be the most important reason for the sustained history of carpet collecting over the years.
This resulted in the discovery of certain “collectible” carpets made in the renaissance period of the late 20th Century to the early 21st Century. We feature the Oushak rug in a robust madder red field, framed by 8 primary and secondary borders - an incredible feature! When it comes to materials and texture, Oushak craftmanship is considered to be one of the finest, as they not only consider the quality, but also the rug's aesthetic appeal. The fine luxurious surface in madder red is synonymous with the weavings of the 1970's.

How to care for your rug:
Vacuum regularly to prevent dirt from the surface
If spills occur, do not rub or spread the stain. Simply blot the affected area with a dry cloth or a tissue to absorb the stain and work towards the stain.
Use warm water diluted in clear white vinegar to manage the dyes
It's recommended that you rotate the rug (not too often) to equalize the surface wear
If heavy furniture is placed over the rug, use a protector to avoid damaging the surface of the rug.
If your carpet is of hand-knotted wool, do not worry about furniture indents, simple vacuuming against the pile will prop up the surface once again.
Professional cleaning: Every year, depending on the usage of the rug
Surface shedding: Non natural materials will not shed. Hand Knotted rugs do not shed.
