Rug Weaving Areas
Posted on 17 January 2014

Rugs come from many areas of the world, with skilled weavers taking their trade with them wherever they go. Although it is thought that it was the Nomads who originally created the pile rug, the flat woven rug has been around for thousands of years with no specific origins. Since then, the art form has spread across Persia, the Orient and the Caucasus, but which rugs come from where, and where are these areas?

Posted on 06 January 2014

A rug should be cleaned every two to three years depending on how much foot traffic it is exposed to, or perhaps more regularly than that if the volume of traffic is exceptionally high. Most handwoven rugs are made from cotton and wool, although they can also be made entirely of wool or even pure silk.
