A Comprehensive Selection of Antique Rugs from All Rug-Producing Origins
Antique Rugs Origins - The truth of the origin is on the backside of the rug. This is why, when examining an antique carpet or vintage rug, most experts, after looking at color and design, will turn the rug over to determine its origin. They look at the structure of the rug, searching for certain things: the warp, the weft, the type of knot. The weave pattern is often what reveals the identity of the rug. The design and color on the front of the rug, while it draws much more attention, is not as dependable a source for determining the antique rug's origin. There was more interchange between groups of weavers' design styles, than of their structural techniques.
