Area Rugs: A Tradition of Quality
Producing area rugs is a true artisanal skill that has been practiced in Central Asia and the Indian subcontinent for thousands of years. In countries like Iran, India, Afghanistan and Pakistan, rugs are made by hand using skills passed down from generation to generation. Wool, cotton, or silk is spun into yarn and then colored using traditional organic dyes from plant or vegetable extracts. The rugs are then woven on a loom, which creates the warp (length-wise) strands. Yarn is then individually knotted around these warp strands, which helps experienced weavers to build the intricate patterns seen on traditional Oriental rugs. A weft strand is then drawn 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, trimmed to ensure an even pile length, and washed.
Your Edwardsville Rug Dealers
We believe in quality and authenticity. Major ways to look for rug quality is by inspecting the knot count (KPI, or "knots per square inch"), the wool and silk used, and the dying materials. The majority of our area rugs are vegetally-dyed. Textiles that are vegetally-dyed are both aesthetically pleasing and more valuable than chemically or natural-dyed rugs. You'll also want to look over the symmetry of the pattern and image.
