The often used but misunderstood term “Oriental Rug” is actually meant to describe a rug crafted in the portion of our planet that is considered “The Orient”. This area generally covers rugs from Asia, Eastern Europe and The Middle Eastern area. While all types of rugs can come from all over the world, Oriental Rugs are the most common. The term has morphed into a general description of high-end, natural fiber rugs, usually crafted from cotton(the foundation) and wool (the pile). Most types of rugs are generally made of natural fibers such as Wool, Silk or Jute. Natural fiber rugs can be crafted a variety of ways, with the most common being hand woven, woven with a loom or machine woven. The natural materials used to craft these rugs typically have different cleaning methods, based on the types of fibers being treated. The same goes for the different makes of rugs. Regardless of the craft type or fiber material, our professional rug technician will identify it properly and administer the proper washing technique required.
