High-end Luxury Rugs
We understand that purchasing a higher price point rugs is an investment and were going to explain why its a good one! Firstly all these rugs are constructed with the finest materials. Both the wool and silk is locally sourced by weavers. The fibres are then taken to the next process of dyeing – where traditional vegetable dyeing techniques are used, creating rich and long lasting colours. This process is an artistic practice, used for generations in rug weaving, where plants are harvested and boiled to create fantastic natural made colours. The organic wool and silk are then dried, combed and delicately hand-knotted and woven on Looms. This hands on approach has a massive difference to machine made rugs with finer, higher knot-density and a tighter weave- making them much more durable. These rugs last for decades if cleaned and cared for properly.
Secondly the pattern and colour combinations revealed in these rugs are truly unique. The elaborate delicately designed motifs and medallions reveal stories and have or originality that modern rugs of the 21st century don’t hold. Finally the value of these rugs is easily retained with simple care routines. The quality of the materials and the time that goes into these rugs is easily recognisable and is what makes these rugs valuable.
