We've recently launched our first version of an Oriental Rug Style Guide. This is the first ever interactive tool to assist the online community in the search of their dream carpet!
While the Rug Style Guide certainly is a useful tool, there are some important elements to inform users of prior to use.
1: Using key terms in regards to oriental rugs Online may be a tricky proposition. As the case may be, it's not uncommon to find items misrepresented as a certain genre of rug to mislead buyers unintentionally or maliciously. Other problems are different spellings of types of rugs. For example, a "Qum" rug may be spelled in one of a half dozen different ways. Be sure to check in with us if you have questions!
2: Outbound links which we have created do not necessarily ensure all search results are "authentic Persian Rugs" or guarantee a "safe" purchase. Be sure to contact us directly through our Internet form prior to purchase! We also offer several free services including our Q&A, FAQ's and other resources found in our First Time Buyers section.
3: Price levels as produced by the Style Guide are based on what one those in the industry would consider relative terms. For example, a selection of an "investment quality" rug does not necessarily mean the rug will appreciate over time, but rather have a significantly higher financial investment.
Thanks for checking out our Rug Style Guide, let us know if you have any suggestions or note glitches to correct.
