We’re very proud of our vast online selection of antique rugs of all types, including high-quality rug types like Oriental and Persian rugs. We understand just how important it is for rug shoppers to find beautiful antique rugs that are worth the investment, while at the same time coincide with any budget.

Below are some of our expert tips to support you as you’re shopping for antique rugs, and by following these tips you’ll put yourself in a much better position to make a great investment decision!

 

 

Be Sure To Carefully Examine The Antique Rug’s Edges

 

Carefully examining the edges of an antique rug is always one of the first and foremost considerations that rug shoppers should keep in mind, and this is because an area rug’s edges are one of the most fundamental parts of the entire rug’s design.

 

Damaged or frayed edges also just so happen to be rather expensive to repair, and this is inherently an issue while shopping for antique rugs because they’re pretty old. That’s exactly why you should only shop with reputable rug dealers like Rug Source that conduct these types of necessary repairs prior to putting antique rugs up for sale!

 

If you do notice that the antique rug’s edges are frayed or look like they may become frayed soon, then it’s a clear warning sign that the rug will eventually start to unravel. Frayed antique rugs are many times not worth your investment in the long run no matter how beautiful and unique the antique rug is, but there of course are instances in which regular wear and tear indicates an antique rug’s age and subsequent value.

 

So there’s a fine line for antique rug shoppers to follow in terms of recognizing regular signs of aging and damages that are too far gone, but you can always be rest assured that all of Rug Source’s antique rugs are very durable and built to last for decades to come!

 

 

Handmade Antique Rugs Are Always A Great Investment To Consider

 

A genuine antique rug will always be handmade. This is why rug shoppers interested in antique rugs should know how to look for signs that an area rug was in fact handmade by an expert artisan.

 

One of the most efficient ways to examine an antique rug and make sure that it’s handmade is to flip the rug over and closely examine the back side of the rug. When you are looking at the back side of the rug, you should see an almost identical image to what you see on the front. The backing of handmade rugs is typically very pliable, whereas machine-made rugs typically have stiffer backings that are made of rubber.

 

It’s also important to note that most high-quality rugs from reputable dealers like Rug Source will have and attached tag, and these tags will indicate the type of manufacturing that was involved in creating the antique rug.

 

Handmade antique rugs offer a whole array of benefits, including increased longevity and greater durability, so highly considering handmade antique rugs will always help you better ensure that you’re truly making the most of this investment opportunity!

 

Always Ask If There’s Been Color Retouch Done To Your Favorite Antique Area Rugs

 

It’s a very unfortunate part of the rug industry that there are countless rug dealers out there that simply try to take advantage of rug shoppers, and this just so happens to be exemplified while people shop for antique area rugs.

 

A lot of people simply get sucked into the idea of having an antique, but don’t know how to examine a rug’s dyes to see if they’ve been artificially developed. If you use a damp cloth and move it across the rug’s surface, you shouldn’t see any dye being transferred.

 

If any dye is transferred in this type of basic test, then it’s a sign that the rug has had paint retouch done to it to make it look more vibrant and lively.

 

We know this sounds pretty crazy, but this scam does happen to countless rug shoppers, even in the United States. But that’s exactly why you can trust the Rug Source team to only provide you with high-quality antique rugs made of natural dyes!

 

Be Sure To Know The Difference Between Distressed Style Rugs vs. Antique Rugs

 

A popular and trendy style of area rug right now are distressed rugs. Distressed rugs feature a common type of faux-aging that occurs within the rug industry where the rug is shaved and tea/acid washing is applied to the rug to give it a washed-out look. This usually gives the rug a rough texture that closely resembles authentically aged antique rugs.

 

Authentic antique rugs will always maintain their colors no matter how old they get. The distressed look of an antique rug will be more natural looking, and the texture will still be soft. So you should know that the colors of an antique rug as compared to a distressed style rug will always be more vibrant.

5 Important Considerations When Searching For A Handmade Rug

 

Handmade rugs vary dramatically in terms of materials, craftsmanship and aesthetics.

The following are 5 important considerations you should keep in mind while looking through our collection of high-quality, handmade rugs:

 

  1. Handmade Definitions

 

All machine-made rugs lack the overall rarity and quality that coincides with handmade rugs, and the overall difference is the uniqueness of handmade rugs.

 

Machine-made rugs are mass-produced, which makes all of them generally similar in terms of material feel and appearance. Handmade rugs are completely unique, and they’re typically made while an artist utilizes a drawing to complete the rug. Although there may be certain similarities within each weaver’s style, each handmade rug will undoubtedly exhibit an unbridled uniqueness that simply can’t ever be matched.
