Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, Persian rugs can be highly valuable, especially those that are antique, hand-knotted, and made from high-quality materials. Their value is influenced by factors such as age, condition, craftsmanship, and rarity.

Persian rugs often carry deep symbolic meanings, with motifs representing elements such as life, prosperity, and nature. The designs can be a form of storytelling or a wish for good fortune.

The high cost is attributed to the labor-intensive process of hand-knotting, the quality of the materials (such as wool and silk), and the cultural and historical significance of the designs. The skill and time required to create each rug justify its price.

Look for the quality of craftsmanship (hand-knotted is preferable), the material (wool or silk), the knot count (higher indicates more detail), and the overall design and colour that suit your taste and decor.

Assess the density and uniformity of the knots, the clarity of the design, the quality of the dyes (natural dyes are often a sign of higher quality), and the finish of the rug.

Consulting with an appraiser who specializes in Persian and Oriental rugs is the best way to determine the value. Factors considered include age, origin, craftsmanship, condition, and market demand.

The "best" rug is subjective and depends on personal preferences, the intended use, and the space where the rug will be placed. Consider rugs that are hand-knotted with high-quality materials and designs that resonate with you.

Measure the area where you plan to place the rug, leaving enough space around furniture for balance. For living rooms, a rug should at least accommodate the front legs of the furniture, while in bedrooms, it should extend around the bed.
