The popularity of handmade carpets

The handmade oriental carpets owe their popularity to their fine workmanship, durable colouring and premium quality. As a status symbol, they are also popular in luxury offices, five-star hotels and palaces, but especially in family homes, where they serve as a highly aesthetic centrepiece. For major cleaning of handmade carpets, it is always advisable to hire a professional, but for minor dirt, vacuuming is an easy way to clean. The Persian carpet is the most ancient of home textiles, dating back to the traditions of Middle Eastern cultures. Admiring a Persian carpet with its colourful floral or geometric patterns, one can imagine wandering through the mountainous highlands of Asia Minor, Central Asia or even the Caucasus. The region's natural conditions and climate were not conducive to growing crops, so livestock farming was the only viable option. The constant movement associated with grazing animals created the framework for a nomadic way of life, in which the craft of weaving carpets was organically embedded thanks to the supply of wool. Initially, the oriental carpet had primarily functional value: it protected against extreme weather changes, covered the entrance to tents as a wall carpet, insulated and provided warmth as a blanket. It gradually evolved from a utilitarian object into a textile of artistic value bearing the hallmarks of oriental cultures, and then, with the spread of urban life, it became an irreversible home furnishing. As a symbol of social status, luxury and prestige, it first adorned the homes of the wealthy, but later conquered the world. Oriental Wool carpets add a special flair to the interior, decorating your home with oriental motifs and stylistic features. In addition to handmade carpets and hand woven Kelim carpets, check out the premium quality machine-made acrylic Persian carpets too, which we brought to you straight from Iran!

Recognising a handmade carpet

The first step is to examine the quality of the knotting of the carpet. In general, the knots of a handmade carpet are irregular and untidy. The uniqueness and beauty of the fringes at the bottom of the carpet also indicate hand-knotting. Certain imperfections and minor variations in patterns or knots are typical of handmade carpets. The higher the number of knots per square centimetre, the more valuable the handmade carpet. Oriental carpets are mostly made of natural materials such as wool, silk or cotton. It is important to examine the fibres and material of the carpet to determine its authenticity and quality. Handmade carpets are usually not perfectly patterned. Variations in colour tone may occur in handmade carpets because the final shade is obtained during the washing process. The value of handmade carpets increases over time. A well-maintained handmade carpet can be a valuable investment that can serve its owner for decades. Think of antique carpets, which are particularly valuable.


Oriental carpet cleaning and vacuuming

The cleaning of oriental carpets at home is not a big task for minor dirt. A slightly damp cloth will remove most dirt. You can use commercially available carpet cleaning foam or sprays specifically designed for cleaning wool carpets. However, for more major cleaning, leave it to professional carpet cleaning companies. Oriental carpet can be vacuumed immediately, no need to wait weeks. Always vacuum in the direction of the fibre and on the lowest setting. The biggest enemy of oriental carpets is moths. Especially in summer, you should vacuum under the carpet occasionally. Avoid placing heavy furniture on the oriental carpet, especially if it has thin soles, as it can tear through the carpet.

The speciality of the oriental carpet

Oriental carpets not only cover the floor, but they also change the atmosphere of the whole room and define its style. The uniqueness of handmade oriental carpets is that they are individually made pieces, each one handmade. The Afghan Kelim carpet is also handmade. And wool is the best raw material used in the weaving of all Chobi Kelim. The hand woven wool Kelim carpet can be laid in the living room or even in the kitchen. The Pakistani carpet is very elegant with geometric designs and bright colours. The Pakistani carpet is often used as a bedroom carpet because of its softness. And the exotic Iranian carpet adds life and an oriental flair to homes, with a wide variety of styles and patterns available. The original function of the Afghan carpet is to provide protection from the cold for nomads. It is therefore a very hard-wearing and durable nomad carpet. The thick wool carpet is special in that its thickness and warmth make it very comfortable in homes. The solid coloured thick wool carpet gives a rustic feel to homes. The choice between handmade oriental carpets depends on taste and needs. If you want a home with a truly special and unique feel, you should choose from handmade carpets.
