Oriental rugs are passed down from parents to later generations, lovingly cared for as they appear in a townhouse, beach cottage, suburban home or retirement condominium as a warm, comfortable family tradition. All they require is proper care and occasional mending to last, carrying with them the memories of those who owned them and passed them along.
Rugs may have a history which speaks of a family member's travels, a wise investment years ago, or a dining or living room where the family gathered. Children probably crawled on the rug, exploring intricate patterns which enhanced the home's classic decor. Many rugs have their own unique stories beginning thousands of miles away in the hands of skilled workers and artisans.
Some of the repairs which oriental rugs may require include replacement of fringe, repair of worn areas, and removal of dust accumulation which can accelerate wear and dull the beautiful colors of the carpet. Modern green carpet cleaning will restore the carpet in a way that is respectful of the environment and kind to the little ones who will be playing on it.
Whether handmade or machine produced, oriental rugs are quite different from the carpeting which is standard floor covering in so many homes. Providing an oasis on hardwood floors, beautiful and ornate, colorful and strong, they are enduring heirlooms carrying family memories and making living spaces unique and rich.
