Afghan Rugs

Friday, June 12th, 2015

An Afghan rug is a handmade floor covering, named for the country of its production (Afghanistan).   Afghan rugs may also be handmade by Afghani craftsmen who live as refugees in Pakistan and Iran.  There are many types of Afghan rugs, all distinctive and varied in monetary value.  Protect the beauty and value of your Afghan rug by entrusting their care to the knowledgeable professional technicians at Oriental Rug Care NY. Typically, the rich hues found in Afghan rugs are the result of vegetable dyes.  Wool, goat hair, and camel hair are commonly used materials for making the rugs themselves.  Afghan rugs can be used as prayer rugs, ceremonial pieces, or as part of the design and décor of a nomadic home.  While patterns and colors can vary, among the most traditional of Afghan rug designs is that of a Bukhara print, an elephant’s foot set on a deep red background.  True artisans still do their own dyeing today, although pre-dyed wool yarn featuring synthetic dyes are also widely available.  This is used increasingly in commercial production of Afghan rugs.   (more…)

Prayer Rugs

Friday, June 12th, 2015

Prayer rugs were invented in the Middle East as part of the Islam religion.  Because Islam requires that the area that a worshiper uses to pray be clean, it was practical to cover the area with a clean rug in order to be absolutely certain.  Physically, prayer rugs tend to be relatively small, just large enough for an adult to kneel down or prostrate himself in prayer.  Traditionally, prayer rugs are hand-woven, and the best prayer rugs are still made by hand today.  Since many people cannot afford hand-woven prayer rugs, machine-made alternatives are also produced.  At Oriental Rug Care NY, we are able to clean and restore any prayer rug that you bring to us, from a centuries-old antique to a modern one made in the last few years.   (more…)

Caucasian Rugs

Friday, June 12th, 2015

A popular choice of floor coverings, Caucasian rugs are so named for the region in which they were originally produced, in the Caucasus Mountains and surrounding regions.  This region is hemmed in by the Black Sea, the Caspian Sea, Russia, Turkey and Iran.  The area produces quite distinctive rugs, dating back to the 18th century, if not earlier.  Typically, Caucasian rugs are rustic in nature, featuring striking geometric designs and bold primary colors.  Until the advent of synthetic dyes, Caucasian rugs owed their color exclusively to vegetable dyes.  Regardless of the type of Caucasian rug you might have, the rug cleaning and maintenance experts at Oriental Rug Care NY are knowledgeable of the techniques and methods needed to help keep your rug looking beautiful.  We have an established record of excellent service in the Tri-State area, and are happy to extend that excellent service to you!
