Modern Persian Rugs – For many who are in the interior, with a genuine Persian mat is an important aspect. It brings with it an aura of tradition as well as grandeur. Persian carpets are one of the oldest types available. Persian carpets are expensive and some people buy them as a means of investment. However, there are a number of fakes that circulate in the industry and it’s important to know that you pick the right one. You can determine this in several ways.
Determine if the carpet is hand woven or machine-made. Authentic Modern Persian Rugs are hand-woven. The process is quite long and often takes a considerable amount of time to complete. Cotton wires are used in a pattern that moves from the top to the bottom of the carpet. The upper part is finished in the side, wool or cotton and is manually made. Turn over the carpet and look at it. If you think the design is visible on the back of the carpet, then the carpet is not handmade.
Note the motif on the carpet. Modern Persian Rugs are largely made up of floral prints. There are sometimes animals and birds. You’ll also find some geometric art in these carpets. Make sure your hand is dry and rub it firmly on a rug that is advertised as a Persian silk rug. Silken will heat up a little while other fibers will not. Compare patterns of Persian carpets. If there are two or more carpets of exactly the same design, they are fakes.
