Area Rugs: A Tradition of Quality
Making area rugs is a true artisanal skill that has been practiced in Central Asia and the Indian subcontinent for thousands of years. In places like Iran, India, Afghanistan and Pakistan, rugs are made by hand using skills inherited 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 trademark patterns seen on traditional Oriental rugs. A weft strand is then placed across the width of the rug, which keeps 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.
Your O’Fallon Rug Dealers
We believe in quality and authenticity. Ideal 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. Fabrics that are vegetally-dyed are both aesthetically pleasing and more valuable than chemically or natural-dyed rugs. You'll also want to inspect the symmetry of the pattern and image.
