Here we will learn how to judge the quality of an oriental rug?
Quite rightly, referring to the quality of an oriental rug, reference is first made to the knotting density, that is, to the number of knots per square meter. But also the material used plays a crucial role. So you can see quite differences in the type of wool used. In addition, if a silk content is added, the carpet is again significantly finer and receives a noble shine.
However, one should always keep in mind that finer knotted carpets made of precious material are also more sensitive and run off more easily. Therefore, even more, rustic knotted carpets made of durable wool qualities have their quality problems, especially for areas that are often used and crossed.
Although the Indian manufactories only copy the traditional Persian patterns, even experts rate the Indian carpets to be of equal or even better quality than the Persian originals. Among other things, this is due to the fact that large Indian companies attach importance to consistent quality and almost identically reproducible carpets for retailers. The Indian carpets are therefore often perfect in the execution but therefore do not always have the classic charm of other Oriental carpets.
This arises precisely because of the individual and different execution in the often nomadic, rural micro and family businesses in today's Iran and the other knotting areas of the Middle East, which formerly belonged to Persian Empire and still, today produces the "true" oriental rugs. Here every carpet is a real one-off. For the most part, the Persian carpets, due to the better, greasier wool, have a higher suppleness than the Indian products.
