AS MOST RUG ENTHUSIASTS KNOW, IT IS VERY HARD TO FIND USHAK RUGS FROM ANATOLIA IN GOOD CONDITIONS.  THEY WERE NOT MESPRODUCED, THUS THERE ARE NOT MANY OF THEM.

ALL OUR RUGS HAVE TO BE WASHED BY PROFESSIONALS.  HOWEVER, THEY CAN ALL be SURFACE-WASHED, SPOT CLEANED, & CARED BY REGULAR VACUUMING.  

UNLESS YOU HAVE A BIG ISSUE, THESE RUGS DO NOT NEED FREQUENT WASHING, BUT EVERY 5-10 YEARS.

SHOULD YOU WISH TO BUY MORE THAN 1 RUG or YOU NEED MORE INFORMATION, PLEASE CONTACT ME FOR A BETTER DEAL AT 410.279.1711.  My rug business started in the Grand Bazaar of Istanbul and continues here, Max

 

Rugs may be hand-made from low-grade, leftover wool, which can be reprocessed by machines and turned into threads to be bleached, dyed, and woven. In the old days, that leftover stuff would only be used as fillings for pillows and beds. The reverse side of a rug made from leftover wool looks rough and feels scratchy (feels like it has tiny mulch pieces in the rug from the reverse). Almost all department stores sell rugs made of low-grade wool. They are mainly made in India. Although they are hand-made and use traditional motifs taken from oriental rugs, these rugs lack the luster, resistance to staining, and durability characteristic of traditional weavings. The lower costs of department store rugs reflect the low price paid to workers in large factories and the very low quality of materials.

Many customers feel intimidated by the “mysteries of the oriental carpet.” Although rug collecting can become a lifetime adventure for those who wish to explore the history, regional variations, and dying techniques involved in making these works of art, most people have simpler needs: they want a beautiful carpet which reflects their discerning tastes, which suits their home, which will last without causing cleaning problems, and which is not over-priced. A reputable dealer will be able to explain the few simple requirements for underlying quality and will not try to interfere with the customer’s preferences in terms of color, design, and thickness.

At Karavan: Treasures from Turkey, our main focus is to find the best samples of hand-made rugs, either new or old, with traditional qualities. If they are new, we mostly look for Turkish knots (also called Gördes knots), vegetable dyes, and hand-spun wool used with traditional designs. They may be Turkish, Kurdish, Turkmen, Azeri, or from the Caucasus. We select from small rug productions, which preserve the human touch of the weavers and concentrate on the qualities of the past. Most antique carpets lasted from grandparents to grandchildren because they were well made. The modern consumer of wool carpets should value the durability of traditional rugs because we put more stress on our floors, with pets, children, and entertaining.
