maintenance program keeps soil below the threshold of visibility. If the program is working satisfactorily, the carpet should never look soiled.
If your rug has visible traffic patterns and/or Soiled fringes or edges , it's time to have it cleaned professionally. A deep cleaning will moisturize the wool, pile and fringes results in an evenly cleaned rug.
Weavers and Finishes
The manufacture of hand made Persian carpet is the result of collaborative work of four groups of people until they reach your hand. The role of qualified and professional weavers and finishers is crucial in producing fine handmade Persian rugs. Knot specifications are peculiar to each region. Quality depends on the patience, integrity and skills of weavers and finishers.
This is a copy of a known design that is neither traditional nor artistic. It basically involves making multiple copies of a single design or commercialize it. Collectively, they often resemble machine made carpets and are known as imitations. The choice is made on the basis of the popularity of a particular design.
Caring for your Carpet
Regular carpet maintenance will enhance your indoor air quality and prevent your carpet's appearance for deteriorating. Because preventative maintenance is less expensive and more effective than frequent restorative cleaning, we recommend that you:
VACUUM AND SOPT CLEAN YOUR CARPET DAILY
Thorough daily vacuuming will extend your carpet's life, because accelerated wear occurs when traffic grinds imbedded soil into the carpet fiber. Only about 20% of carpet soil is soluble in water or solvent. You can remove much of the remaining 80% (fibbers and particles) by vacuuming thoroughly every day, emphasizing heavy soil areas like entrances.
TO ENSURE SPOTS ARE REMOVED PROMPTLY

A carpet is made of three components. They are warp, weft and the pile. The carpets are made of natural fibres and could be wool, cotton or silk. The main raw material is pile yarn.
Pile Yarn is the face of a carpet. Specifications of pile yarn are important factors determining carpet quality and value. Each factor may result in a different kind of carpet with its unique value and specifications. Examples are;
1. Fineness as measured by thickness and length of the fibre.
2. Colour including the original colour and classification of dyestuff and also system of dyeing process. There is a major industry supplying the yarn with the right colour to the carpet weavers.
3. Spinning system that affects the orientation of the yarn and the feel of the carpet would be directly dependant on the quality of the fibre. Examples of spinning include hand spun, semi worsted or woolen system of spinning. Hand spun yarns may contribute to the value of the carpet that is a handicraft. There are professional groups specialized in spinning for the carpet industry.
WARP AND WEFT
Warp and weft are foundations of a carpet and can be either
wool, cotton or silk. Warp and weft quality is also crucial
to the carpet industry. Normally, specifications of these
two yarns are also important in determining carpet quality.
One of the main features of Persian carpet is its design and
may comprise the following types:
This type is dependant on the geography, weavers of each
region follow the specific design of the region.
This is reflective of the tribe or village history.
Although, the designs vary from one carpet to the next,
they remain distinctively similar in their overall design
features. An example of that is a Turkman rug. Designers
are often members of the tribe or village who build on or
modify the existing design they inherited over centuries.
This is the type created by artists. They are designed to portray beauty, emotions, a particular landscape or history.
