Turkish rugs have been made for thousands of years, so there’s definitely an art to every rug that is produced. All of these rugs have been made somewhere in Turkey – formerly the Ottoman Empire.
The knots on a Turkish rug are double-looped and symmetrical, providing a balanced and durable design. Particularly when you have a lot of foot traffic going over the rug, the double loop can work to your benefit.
Every rug tells a story. You’ll find that many will have a central medallion in the center or that medallion repeats itself.
Vibrant colors are used thanks to the vegetable dyes that go into the yarn. The colors are layered, creating a serene look. The more you look at a rug, the more designs you’ll notice. It’s part of the art and why Turkish rugs are so highly sought after.
Oriental rugs encompass all rugs that are manufactured in Asia. This includes Russia, India, China, and more. You’ll find that it’s easy to spot Oriental rugs based on their material as well as their central designs.
Most Oriental rugs are made of wool, so they’re heavy and durable. Some will also have silk and synthetic blends of yarn woven into them for a softer feel.
Many of the Oriental designs will feature floral patterns, either as a repeating design, as a border, or even as a background. The designs may also include landscapes, animals, and geometric shapes.
Contrasting colors are commonly found, creating a three-dimensional effect. These rugs have a significant amount of attention to detail, so they’ll add a luxurious appearance to any room where they are placed.
You’ll find that the cost of Oriental rugs has come down significantly over the years. Much of this is because they’ve switched from hand-weaving to a more manufactured approach. The single-loop is still used, however, which adds to the overall feel and aesthetic.
