Turkish rugs were first brought to 。Europe in the Middle Ages and were in such high demand that Europeans in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries 。referred to all oriental rugs as " Turkey rugs." In contrast to Persian rugs, Turkish rugs of the nineteenth 。century were less sophisticated, brighter in color, more rectilinear, and were more coarsely-woven. Repeating。 patterns are rare and prayer rugs with mihrabs in solid colors are common in antique Turkish rugs. Of the many weaving。 centers throughout Anatolia, each created an innately Turkish rug with a distinct signature style native to its specific region.。 [Source: Doris Leslie Blau *~*]。 “With many weaving centers throughout Anatolia, each created an innately Turkish carpet with a distinct。 signature style native to its specific region.。 In the fifteenth century, inspired by the example set by the Timurid and Safavid Courts, Turkish artists 。introduced floral and Chinese motifs, first into ceramic tile-work and textiles, and then adapted into oriental carpet patterns.。 These designs included elegantly drawn prayer rugs decorated with architectural motifs serving as models for centuries。 of village weavers of rugs and textiles across Anatolia.” *~*。 Marika Sardar of New York University wrote: “In Ottoman Turkey, weaving patterns and techniques changed in the early。 sixteenth century after conquests in Persia and Egypt. Anatolia had been known for carpets with stylized animal and 。geometric designs, but with these new cultural contacts, carpets designed around a central medallion and with flowing 。saz-style vegetation came into vogue. Similar motifs also appeared on book covers, textiles, and in manuscript borders. 。The style of these Ottoman court rugs, first produced in Istanbul, then spread to other weaving centers in Cairo and Ushak。 (58.63; 1984.69), but never fully overtook the various regional carpet traditions. Caucasian and Armenian carpets retained。 their customary geometric patterns, and kilims (or flat-weaves) remained popular.

Carpets from southeastern Anatolia are influenced by carpets from Syria and Iran. 。They use a lot of red and feature a lot of alternating positive and negative space. Carpets from northeastern Anatolia are 。influenced by carpets from Armenia. They feature Armenian floral and tree designs.。 According to Doris Leslie Blau: “Decorative antique carpets from Sivas are often finely-woven interpretations of the classical 。Persian medallion design and have floral infill. Hereke rugs often feature luxurious materials such as silk and metal-thread worked 。into designs emulating the antique Persian carpets of the Ottoman and Safavid Court workshops. Ghiordes, in the western part of Turkey, 。is known for precisely figured, colorful, multi-bordered antique prayer rugs with open prayer niches, and stylized architectural motifs. 。The antique Borlou carpet most closely resembles the dramatic scale, informality and pleasing palette of oriental Oushak rugs. 。[Source: Doris Leslie Blau *~*]。 “Ghiordes, in the western part of Turkey, is known for precisely figured, colorful, multi-bordered antique prayer rugs with 。open prayer niches, and stylized architectural motifs. The antique Borlou carpet most closely resembles the dramatic scale, 。informality and pleasing palette of the oriental rugs in nearby Oushak, later manifesting itself in grand room size carpets.。 Formerly called Caesarea, Kayseri is a rug production center in central Turkey (Anatolia). Due to its location along the。 Silk Road, rugs from the region reveal the heavy influence of Gordes and Iranian carpets.” *~*。 “Since the beginning of their production in the 18th century, rugs from the Anatolian town, Ghiordes have mostly been known。 for their rectilinear, colorful, multi-bordered antique prayer patterns. Ghiordes rugs often have open fields with mihrabs 。or hanging lamps and stylized architectural motifs that are found on sixteenth and seventeenth century Ottoman court rugs.。Ghiordes is the oldest knot found in the most ancient of rugs/carpets. However, the oldest fragment of rug found with this 。knot was discovered in Siberia amongst the remains of the Pazyryk people and has a date stamp that places it in the Iron Age. *~*。Oushak and Tulu Rugs。 According to Doris Leslie Blau: “Since the sixteenth century, antique oriental carpets and rugs from Oushak have been 。represented among the carefully chosen and highly esteemed objects d'art in the studied interiors and still life paintings。 of important European personages, as depicted by such artists as Holbein, Lotto, Velasquez, Memling and Vermeer. Until the。 eighteenth century, the vogue for Ottoman carpets was unabated designs such as 'medallion' and 'star' Oushaks in royal tones 。of brick red, terracotta, deep blue and gold continued to grace European interiors. Over time, designs of antique Ushak carpets。 and antique Oushak rugs evolved, managing to retain the distinctive character of sixteenth century prototypes continuing to reference 。large scale ovoid or star shaped medallions enclosing split-leaf rumi and floral vinery displayed on fields of delicate floral tracery.。 [Source: Doris Leslie Blau *~*]。 “Characteristics of antique Oushak rugs are: relatively loose knots giving a supple hand a fairly long pile colors that have oxidized。 into a riotous sorbet of summer fruit such as melon, tangerine, passion fruit, mango, orange, lemon and lime green. The monumental scale,。 relaxed structure and playful palette of antique Oushak rugs ensure that they remain a favorite within the pantheon of decorative antique。 oriental rugs. *~*。 “Tulu means long haired in Turkish. These rugs were made in the past for the purpose of getting warmth and for sleeping. 。They are soft, usually have vibrant colors and are very shiny. Antique Tulu rugs are some of the most beautiful textile 。creations in the entire world. They can be identified by their artistic details and luscious texture. These rugs were made。 by hand knotting with the Ghiordes knotting style. Tulu rug patterns are unique but they are mostly based on flowery or 。vinery designs with something solid or plain for a centerpiece. Tulu rugs are usually woven with a combination of vibrant 。and earthy tones for balance. *~*。 “Tulu rugs are woven in the city of Karapinar, which lies east of Konya. It is home to a lot of mountains and plains. 。At least 100 years ago, the people of the village could not grow plants or tend livestock because of the conditions at the time.。 As a result, they started doing Tulu weaving (long-haired) and producing Tulu - rugs. Most of these rugs are 70-100 years old. 。They begin weaving these Tulus to keep themselves warm in the blistering cold up in the mountains.。 Commercial Tulu rug weaving only started recently to help them make a living for themselves.。Some Tulu rugs show regional geography and terrain, hence, the flowery and vinery centerpieces and 。designs. Some Tulu rugs exist with oatmeal fields (centers) and more solid edges. This depicts the plains。 of the Karapinar and the mountains depict the solid edges that give some balance to the city of Karapinar.” *~*。Sivas, Borlou and Hereke Rugs。 According to Doris Leslie Blau: “Borlou rugs originate in Turkey. They have been handmade since as early as the 13th century. 。It is believed that a tribe known as the Seljuks were the skilled weavers responsible for these early masterpieces.。 The Seljuks are said to have hailed from Central Asia and were nomads. During the 1400s and 1500s, Europeans collected。 and treasured these rugs so much so that all rugs that came from Asia were thought to be products of Turkey. Each rug bears。 the intricate designs that represent the weaving base that produced it. Each region in Turkey has a signatory design that 。identifies it.” [Source: Doris Leslie Blau *~*]。 “The following are some of the regions and their associated designs: 1) “Hereke” is weaving center is located near Istanbul 。in the northern tip of Izmit Bay. These rugs were reserved for royalty and people held in high esteem on the national and international front. 。They incorporated motifs from Persia, traditional Turkish designs, Egypt, Western Europe, and of course the Usak medallion. 。These rugs are considered to be the finest in the world. 2) “Konya” is located in Central Anatolia. The rugs produced 。here also have a Persian flavor as well as a floral motif. Marco Polo once commented on the beauty of the carpets produced in this region.。 3) “Sivas” carpets incorporate the Usak medallion, have a Persian flavor, and tend to be more floral.。 “Sivas rugs and carpets weavers traditionally used a smaller assortment of color than their Persian counterparts, achieving a remarkable 。range with only eight or nine colors. Primary colors tend to dominate, particularly blue and madder red, although a softer and 。lighter palette is often used on late nineteenth and early twentieth century carpets. Decorative antique carpets from Sivas in。 the southeast are finely woven and formal, tending to interpret the classical Persian style with central medallions and floral infill. 。A palette of soft and pale gelato tones in the typical antique Sivas rug makes it more feminine and sugary than other any other antique Turkish carpet. *~*。 “Hereke rugs made in the small coastal town of Hereke, Turkey. In the early nineteenth century, on the outskirts of Istanbul, the Hereke。 carpet workshop was established, becoming famous for producing exceptional, finely woven carpets of outstanding technical ability.。 These antique Hereke rugs often feature luxurious materials such as silk and metal-thread worked into designs emulating the antique 。Persian carpets of the Ottoman and Safavid Court workshops. *~*。 “Antique Hereke rugs are truly beautiful pieces of art, and it's truly mind-boggling to think that so many beautiful pieces came from a single town.。 Like many antique rugs, Hereke rugs feature subtle, muted colors that span the spectrum. They also feature intricate designs from edge to edge.。 Hereke rugs can range from small 6'x4' rugs that will cover a small piece of a room to massive, room-spanning 22'x14' carpets. Each one will 。serve as a unique piece of art with its own distinct flair. *~*。 “Originally intended to furnish palaces, Hereke rugs were made throughout the 1800's. To fit their palatial purposes, Hereke rugs are not only。 made of cotton, wool, or silk, but many also feature threads of gold or silver. These threads help antique Hereke rugs stand out visually,。 and vastly increase their value among collectors. While some Hereke rugs are still produced today, the most beautiful 。and valuable of them are the antiques.。 There is no need to worry about any degradation of quality over time, however. Even in the 1800's, Hereke rugs were precisely 。made with double knots, and their patterns are still clearly visible and their colors have not faded.” *~*。Turkic and Islamic Carpets in European Paintings。 Walter Denny of the Metropolitan Museum of Art wrote: “The popularity of what we call oriental carpets—pile-woven carpets from。 the Islamic world—in Europe from the fourteenth century onward is reflected in the frequent depiction of oriental carpets in European paintings.。 Indeed, European paintings are a primary source for scholarship on early carpets, and many groups of Islamic carpets from the Middle。 East are today called by the names of European painters who depicted them: Lotto, Holbein, Ghirlandaio, Crivelli, and Memling are among。 the European painters whose names are now used to describe certain groups of carpets woven in Ottoman Turkey. [Source:Walter Denny,。 Department of Islamic Art, Metropolitan Museum of Art metmuseum.org \^/]。 “From biblical times onward, the concept of having an expensive textile underfoot has been associated with wealth, power, and sanctity; 。when the Sienese painter Duccio depicted the story of those who spread their garments under Christ's feet on Palm Sunday, he was simply 。renewing an age-old cultural concept. By the time Sir Walter Raleigh put his cloak on the ground to help Queen Elizabeth over a mud puddle, 。the mystique of textiles underfoot had been around for millennia.\^/。 “A fifteenth-century painting by Giovanni di Paolo, Madonna and Child with Two Angels and a Donor, depicts under the feet of the Virgin。 Mary one of the earliest and rarest types of carpets from Turkey to be exported in quantity to Italy; the design consists of highly。 stylized animals in octagons (41.190.16). By the sixteenth century, carpets were frequently depicted in portraits as a signifier of 。sophistication, education, and high social and economic status; an anonymous portrait by Moretto da Brescia shows at the very bottom。 a minor border of a contemporary Anatolian rug from Ottoman Turkey; the design of the rest remains an enigma (28.79).\^/。 “By the seventeenth century, depictions of carpets were widespread throughout Europe. The Museum owns several Lotto carpets; the earlier。 and larger examples have a border of stylized strapwork recalling squared-off kufic Arabic writing (08.167.1), while borders of later 。examples have small medallions, such as those shown in the painting by Jan Breghel and Peter Paul Rubens entitled The Feast of Achelous 。(45.141). Here, we see a story from Ovid's Metamorphoses portrayed as a contemporary Flemish outdoor banquet, with a beautiful Lotto 。carpet with red and yellow arabesques from central Turkey shown on a table partially protected by a linen tablecloth. The pattern was a 。favorite in Europe; the seventeenth-century painter Nicolas Maes depicted a young girl peeling apples, seated next to a table covered with 。a sumptuous Lotto carpet (14.40.612).\^/。 “Carpets woven in Syria were extremely rare in Europe: a painting by Gabriël Metsu entitled A Musical Party shows a so-called chessboard 。carpet with a design of geometrical stars from early seventeenth-century Syria over a table (91.26.11); the Museum owns an actual carpet 。of this design, given by Joseph V. McMullan (69.267).\^/。 “Medallion carpets woven in Ushak in west-central Turkey were also depicted frequently in European paintings. Metsu's sumptuous Dutch interior scene 。The Visit to the Nursery shows a large Ushak medallion carpet draped over a table (17.190.20). The Metropolitan has several Ushak carpets 。of this type in its collection (08.173.13). The attractive genre scene by Gerard ter Borch, the Younger, entitled A Woman Playing the 。Theorbo-Lute and a Cavalier depicts a small west Anatolian medallion carpet with an unsual design on the table in front of his musical couple (14.40.617).\^/。 Although Johannes Vermeer's lifetime output of paintings was very small, a large portion of them contains depictions of oriental carpets. 。Two in particular feature carpets prominently: the famous A Maid Asleep depicts two different seventeenth-century Anatolian carpets from Turkey。 (14.40.611), while Young Woman with a Water Pitcher shows a soft and thickly textured Persian carpet, again on a table, with a design of 。floral arabesques on a red ground (89.15.21). The tradition of showing carpets on tables in upper-class interiors continued well into。 the eighteenth century; Longhi's The Visit shows a western Anatolian prayer carpet from the Gördes district draped over a table in an。 elegant Italian interior (14.32.2).\^/。 As carpets became more affordable in Europe, very large examples were imported for use as floor covering. Francis Wheatley's 。The Saithwaite Family, for example, presents an aristocratic British couple and their daughter on a very large eighteenth-century 。carpet from Ushak (2009.357). In early nineteenth-century France, Jean-August-Dominique Ingres, a great admirer of Italian Renaissance art,。 self-consciously referred backward in time to earlier portraits in his well-known portrait of Jacques-Louis Leblanc (19.77.1).。 The carpet-covered table shown with books, a handwritten letter or manuscript, and an inkwell (a concept that horrifies today's textile conservators)。 refers to a long tradition in European painting, in which carpets are associated not only with economic and social status in general, 。but also with learning and literacy. The small carpet on the table, of a well-known eighteenth-century type from Anatolia, 。is strikingly similar to an actual example from the McMullan collection in the Metropolitan (1974.149.15).。 Depictions of carpets in European and American paintings continued throughout the twentieth century, 。in works as diverse as the orientalist paintings of Matisse or American interiors by artists such as Glackens; the colors, textures,。 and patterns of carpets continue to fascinate patron and painter alike into our own time.。Rug Motifs, Symbols & Meaning。There are so many different symbols and motifs found in Rugs and Kilims across the world, most of which date back hundreds of。 years but are still being used by carpet weavers today. We thought it might be interesting to have a reference to these symbols 。together with their meanings so you can identify some of the motifs found in your own rugs. 。BROWSE OUR RUGS NOW AND SEE THE SYMBOLS IN SOME OF THEM。ELIBELINDE - Hands on Hips。A stylised female figure derived from the Anatolian mother goddess figurines and used as a symbol of motherhood and fertility.。KOÇBOYNUZU - Ram's Horn。A crescent-shaped symbol of fertility, heroism, power and masculinity。BEREKET - Fertility。A kilim motif composed of elibelinde and koçboynuzu motifs arranged to include various protective symbols.

The following advice and information are basic general instructions。 that the average carpet owner may exercise in the care and cleaning of Turkish and Oriental Carpets. The best recommendation is 。regular brushing with an old fashioned hand broom with natural bristles or the use of a vacuum cleaner. Remember that it is equally 。important to brush the underlay of the carpet and the floor beneath. Utilizing a vacuum cleaner will never damage the carpet 。if only cleaning is made by the nozzle attachment other than the revolving brush attachment.。 。WASHING OR CLEANING。 How often a carpet to be cleaned, obviously depends on the amount of traffic and the type of carpet. Such cleaning may vary from 。every six months to once every two years. A carpet with a light colored pattern may be sent out to be cleaned more often, 。but it may be less obvious if the carpet is dark and intricately patterned. The first indication that the carpet needs。 cleaning will be from the feel of the pile, which may feel course and harsh to the touch instead of velvety and smooth as it should be.。 Another useful test is to fold up one corner and tap the back of the carpet over the palm of the hand. If a fine powder of dust,。 grit and loose fibers fall into your hand it is certainly the time to clean the carpet.。 。HAND CLEANING AT HOME。 You may hesitate at the idea of cleaning your carpet at home. Although it is a time consuming process requiring care and patience, 。it is actually a simple job which can be successfully carried out by any carpet owner who follows these simple instructions. 。Hand cleaning has several rewards, apart from the obvious benefit of saving money. It will give personal satisfaction to see 。every fiber getting fresh and reviewed. It will also give you a chance to have a closer relationship with your carpet as every previously 。unnoticed detail of color and motif comes into view with the close attention that hand cleaning requires. Nearly all types of carpets can。 be cleaned at home with the exception of antiques, carpets in need of repair and fine silk carpets. These should receive the attention 。of a personal carpet repair specialist.。 。PREPERATION FOR WASHING。 Preparation is as important as the washing process itself. First of all, test the carpet for color fastness by rubbing a brightly。 colored area gently with damp white cloth. Then examine it the carpet thoroughly to make sure it is not in need of repair.。 Since the carpet becomes slightly fragile when it is wet, it is advisable to carry out most repairs before washing.。 Only repiling is done more successfully after washing, since the color can be matched more accurately. Before washing,。 brush and beat the carpet thoroughly to remove as much loose dust as possible, because dust and dirt is more damaging 。when wet rather than dry. Finally find a flat, clean hard surface on which to clean the carpet more easily.。 。EQUIPMENT。 Most of the necessary equipment can be found already at home. A soft brush with natural bristles about one inch long。 (the type used for grooming horses is ideal), white natural vinegar, carpet shampoo (or any kind of natural soap), 。especially Ivory soap is recommendable) and a bucket of lukewarm water are all that is needed.。Caution:Avoid using detergents and soaps containing strong chemicals with high P.H. values since inorganic substances may harm organic wool fibers.。 。METHOD。 Lay the carpet with the pile up on a hard flat surface. Dip the brush into the liquid (mixture of soap, vinegar and。 lukewarm water) and apply it in gentle even vertical strokes. Vigorously brushing or scrubbing will not clean thoroughly。 and is likely to damage the carpet in its wet vulnerable state. Start in one corner, brushing up and down, against the pile。 with even overlapping movements. Once the carpet is brushed lengthwise, than brush horizontally, or from side to side across the pile,。 the same gentle overlapping strokes is best. The Pile should be thoroughly clean by now. Finally, brush gently in the direction of。 the pile as the carpet dries, so that the pile is running in the right direction.。 Try to apply the cleaning solution sparingly, so that the foundation does not become wet. It is very difficult to dry a carpet thoroughly,。 since it is firmly encased in the million of tight little knots. If the carpet is relayed on the floor while it is still damp, the carpet 。will probably start to rot and in a few months the base will become extremely brittle.。 During the entire cleaning process handle the carpet as carefully as possible, since while it is wet, it is extremely fragile, so it。 is very easy to cause damage.。 。DRYING。 Small carpets can be pegged by the kilim and on a clothes line. Large ones are more easily dried on a hard clean surface like concrete 。of paving stones. Do not dry on a lawn, since the base will absorb moisture of the grass. If the weather is not cooperating for drying it 。outside than let the carpet dry flat in a room with warm air current heating system. While it dries don�t walk on it and don�t place anything on it.。 The warp, left and the pile of a completely dried carpet should feel soft and pliable.。 Remove the dry dirt and shampoo powder by gently brushing with a soft brush or by using the vacuum cleaner.。 。THINGS TO AVOID。 Washing machines and dryers must never be used for any delicate hand made item. Vibration, water temperature and harsh detergents 。will cause irreparable damage. It may even reduce the carpet to shreds. Many people must have seen or heard Eastern weavers washing the 。carpets in streams and rivers. This has lead many owners to wrongly believe that a complete soaking is good. This process in fact, is 。only used for brand new carpets. They are washed very quickly laid out to dry immediately in the baking sun.。 Some firms that advertise themselves as expert carpet cleaners use electric rotary brushes. These machines were designed for use。 on machine made carpet and should only be used on such items. Again dry cleaners advertise themselves as carpet cleaners. 。These services may be useful for machine made carpets, but an Oriental hand made masterpiece should never be subjected to 。the strong chemicals that these firms use. The damage may become apparent only after several months and it may be irreparable.。 。DEALING WITH SPILLS AND STAINS。 Water and dampness are the greatest danger to an Oriental carpet. Water spills are perhaps the most common accident at home.。 When this occurs, necessary steps should be immediately taken. Using a white cloth with no coloring, try to absorb as much of 。the spilled water as possible. Place some material underneath the carpet and never try to wring it out. A hair dryer, set a moderate heat,。 is probably the best implement for drying. Dry the carpet thoroughly from both sides. The pile may be a little when dry. 。Gentle ease it back into shape with your fingers. On the other hand, in a busy household, a variety of substances may be 。accidently spilled on a rug. Excluding the silk and antique carpets most of these accidents can be tackled at home. 。The first step with any substance is the same as with water. Absorb as much as the spill as possible with a clean, white dry cloth.。 This simple absorption method, when carried out as quickly as possible, is the greatest contribution to stain prevention. 。In dealing with every type of stain, work from top of the stain downward, never from the middle outwards, as this may 。cause the stain to spread. Never use hot water or bleach to help remove the stain, and always remember that soft scrubbing 。is much more effective than a harsh one.。BENEFIT OF WOOL RUGS。1. AESTHETIC APPEAL。The attractiveness of a wool rug is the very first thing you will notice, with your rug instantly adding a touch of 。warmth and luxury to your home.。 There is just something so appealing about the look of a 100% wool rug compared with a synthetic one.。2. COMFORT。The feel of your 100% wool rug is another obvious plus. Whether walking, standing, sitting or lying on a wool rug, they provide excellent comfort, 。feeling oh-so soft and warm underneath you.。3. HEALTH BENEFITS。Less obvious are the many health benefits that wool rugs provide. Wool is a natural material, which is hygienic and non-allergenic.。It is a great choice for asthma sufferers or those with sensitivities or allergies, because wool rugs are excellent at filtering air 。pollutants such as pollen, dust and fungal spores, aiding respiration.。The scales of wool’s fibres trap fine dust and dirt in their layers until you vacuum, limiting the amount of particulate floating in the air.。The fibres also deter the growth of bacteria and dust mites, and they do not release harmful gases, unlike many synthetic fibres.。4. NATURAL AIR HUMIDIFIER。Did you know wool is a natural ‘smart’ fibre, helping to balance the atmosphere in your home? This means it absorbs humidity and releases。 it back into the air when the air is dry.。Because wool fibres soak up the water vapour in the air, they act as a natural air humidifier for your home.。5. ERGONOMIC BENEFITS FOR SAFETY。Another benefit of wool rug is its pile texture; a wool rug provides excellent surface friction, 。which assists in maintaining a good grip and posture when you walk.。This is especially helpful for toddlers who are learning to walk, as it supports their balance and coordination.。The extra grip also contributes to accident prevention by helping you avoid slipping on a bare floor. 。If you or your kids do have a fall onto a wool rug, it will also help cushion you from injury.。6. FLAME RESISTANCE。Wool fibres are naturally flame-resistant without requiring the addition of fire-retardant chemicals. 。Unlike synthetic rugs, which can be extremely dangerous, a wool rug will not melt if it comes into contact with heat.。If wool comes in contact with fire, it is extremely slow to ignite, and even has the ability to self-extinguish smouldering due to its upper pile, 。the thick insulating char layer that inhibits fire.。This will give you great peace of mind, particularly when used in your children’s rooms.。7. DURABILITY AND ENDURANCE。Your wool rug is a great investment, as its luxurious look will last for years without showing signs of ageing.。The fibres have an intrinsic resilience and are able to withstand heavy foot traffic, thanks to wool’s natural crimp, 。which enables ‘bounce back’.。Amazingly, wool fibres are able to stretch more than 35% and will still return to their original shape.。 This elasticity means that your rug will quickly recover from crushing, indents, pile compression or tracking marks caused by feet or furniture.。8. STAIN RESISTANCE。Compared with synthetic fibres, wool fibres have a 30% higher rate of stain resistance, thanks to the natural light lanolin。 coating on the surface of wool fibres which prevents dirt and stains from penetrating deeply.。This means that most soiling remains on the surface and is easy to remove.。9. WATER RESISTANCE。Similarly, water doesn’t easily penetrate wool fibres, providing a natural protective barrier.。10. WOOL DYES ARE FADE RESISTANT。The processes used to dye wool ensure the colours are fade resistant.。Unless constantly exposed to direct sunlight, you can expect barely any fading of your beautifully coloured wool rug.。11. ENERGY EFFICIENCY。Wool rugs act as an insulator helping to keep your home warm and contributing to your energy efficiency efforts.。12. NOISE CANCELLATION。Wool rugs absorb sound and muffle echoes and family noise.。13. RESISTANCE TO STATIC ELECTRICITY。Honestly, who likes getting zapped?。14. ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY FIBRE。Wool is a fully sustainable, renewable fibre. Sheep grow their wool all year around, keeping them warm in the colder months。 before the wool is shorn in the summertime.。Shearing is a vital part of caring for the animals, while ensuring a fresh supply of wool for the wool industry each year.。 。Unlike many synthetic products, wool products are also recyclable. Once your wool rug has served your family for many years, 。instead of going to landfill it can be transformed into other products.。Alternatively, wool rugs are also biodegradable in soil, producing nitrogen, sulphur, carbon dioxide, all of which are plant nutrients.。The energy costs of creating wool products are also far lower than for synthetic fibres, greatly reducing the carbon footprint。for producing wool products. All up, it’s one of the most environmentally friendly flooring products you can hope to find.。Hand made rug is clean and ready to use.。SIZE IN CM: 134 X 78。I have taken all the pictures outdoors !!!。Feel free for any questions,you may have !!!!。I will ship same rug as pictured,no way different one !!!。Vntage rug is going to be shipped by Fedex express within 4 business days,handling time is 1 day,I will inform you after shipment。Thank you very much for your visit !!!。Melisa 。 。
