More About Persian Rugs
As manifestations of refined craftsmanship, Persian rugs are designed to withstand the test of time. The first written mention of Persian rugs dates back almost 2,500 years, when Greek author Xenophon described them as precious enough to serve as diplomatic gifts. Perhaps the Persian rug that has caught your eye is valued for the rustic roots of the nomadic tribespeople responsible for its weaving. Or maybe you are drawn to a rug with more complex color palettes and finer threads, typical of the work of expert village weavers. Regardless, chances are there is a rug that will uniquely enhance the elegance of your interior.

Persian Rug Safety
We highly recommend purchasing a non-slip under pad for your Persian rug. A rug pad is an easy and inexpensive way to avoid any destabilizing slippage, slow down any wear and tear, and protect your handmade Persian rug from moisture and dirt, while shielding both your Persian rug and floor from discoloration.
Maintain a Persian rug
Collectors of antique Persian handmade rugs understand that proper care and regular upkeep preserves and even appreciates the value of their investment. One way to ensure that your handmade rug ages like a fine wine and becomes a family heirloom is to rotate the rug on occasion so that its colors may mature gracefully in all lighting conditions. Regular vacuuming (even beating!) of your rug will stop dirt and grime from gradually grinding away at its precious pile.
