Area Rugs: A Tradition of Quality
Crafting area rugs is a true artisan skill that has been practiced in Central Asia and the Indian subcontinent for thousands of years. In places like Iran (formerly Persia), India, Afghanistan and Pakistan, rugs are hand-knotted using skills passed down from generation to generation. Wool, cotton, or silk is spun into yarn and then colored using natural vegetable dyes or plant extracts. The rugs are woven, which creates the warp (length-wise) strands. Yarn is then individually knotted around these warp strands, which helps create the intricate patterns found in an Oriental rug. A weft strand is then placed across the width of the rug, which holds the knots in place and creates the pile. After months or even years of knitting, the rug is then finished with extra weaving and protection on the ends, cut to ensure an even pile length, and washed.
Hand-knotted area rugs are made solely by hand, without the help of machines. You can tell if a rug is made by a human or a machine by inspecting the fringe, or “foundation.” There are distinct differences between handmade area rugs and hand-tufted or machine-made ones. It's our goal at Rugs By Saga to provide our customers with the highest quality area rugs in St. Louis at an affordable price. Below, you can see some of the authentic area rugs we have in our showroom:

How Do I Care For My Area Rug?
Every rug has a history and a story, and our staff will show you why certain rugs are the right fit for your home. We also know that an area rug should be an investment for years to come. Our area rugs team believes performing the following steps regularly will ensure that your rug withstands the wear and tear of home life, and keep it looking beautiful for your great-great grandchildren:
Like most carpeting, Oriental area rugs should be vacuumed on a regular basis to remove dirt and help restore life to the fibers. Be careful not to vacuum the fringes. Use your vacuum attachments to reach under the furniture to avoid moth damage.
Once a year, your area rug should be rotated to ensure even wear. If foot traffic is excessive, rotation may be needed more often, less often if traffic is limited.
The beauty and longevity of your Oriental area rug depends largely on cleanliness and care. Depending on the amount of traffic, we recommend a professional cleaning every 3 years. Never clean Oriental rugs with chemicals or steam.
In most circumstances, a quality pad should be used under your area rug to help prevent it from wear and slippage. We will be happy to provide you with the correct padding.
In case of damage, just about any problem has a solution. Old and antique area rugs sometimes need to be rewoven where worn and rejuvenated, restored to life. Our area rug experts would be happy to help you with any restoration plans. Call us at 636-227-8555 or contact us to discuss.
When spills occur, act quickly. Dilute with plenty of water and blot the wet area until all of the moisture is removed. For solid spills, take a spoon and carefully scoop up the material. The above steps will help you eliminate most stains.
