    Iran (often still referred to as Persia when discussing rugs) is one of the oldest and most trusted weaving centers in the world. The craft has roots that extend for centuries in this region, with each city establishing its own unique styles, patterns and colors. Weavers in Iran are considered some of the most skilled in the world, producing some of the finest quality rugs available.

    Hand-Knotted: When people think of “Oriental Rugs,” they’re usually thinking of hand-knotted rugs. But it’s not the design that defines their quality; it’s the way they are made. Each of these rugs is made up of millions of individual knots tied by hand by a weaver. This production method is rigorous and long: depending on the rug’s size and the complexity of design, these rugs take between nine months to over a year to produce and require the participation of many expert craftsman. Herdsmen, yarn-makers, dyers, designers, weavers, washers, and sculptors (hand-knotted rugs have to be shaved down to achieve their consistent plush feel) are all involved in making these unique and long-lasting pieces. The method used to produce these rugs follows the same tradition it has for centuries.

    One might wonder, why not adopt new and faster techniques? There are alternative construction methods for plush rugs, but none that can hold a candle to the beauty, uniqueness and durability of rugs made in the hand-knotted technique. These are the rugs that last for centuries and can withstand the chaos of an active life; these can be cleaned, repaired, dyed and even partially re-knotted to insure a long life.

    Vacuum regularly: New wool rugs may shed yarn fibers. Avoid continuous exposure to sunlight; if they must sit in direct sun, rotate the rug to prevent local fading. If individual knots become loose, it's normal, but don't pull them, clip them with scissors. Blot (don't rub) liquid spills immediately with a clean cloth, using mild soap and water if necessary. For harder stains, we recommend a professional rug cleaning.
