Buy Carpets Depending on their Make

The first step is to decide the make of the carpet. This is the most important aspect of buying a carpet since it includes your purpose and wants. We will simplify the process in 2 steps.

Define the purpose of your carpet

The purpose of a carpet can just be decorative (floor, walls, indoor-outdoor carpets, etc.). or maybe driven by specific use (warming floors, noise cancellation, etc.). The different purposes would require different sizes. You will need to decide the measurements for the carpet that you are looking to buy. Most carpets are in rectangular shape and comes in standard sizes like 2'x3', 3'x5', 4'x6', 5'x7', 6'x9', 7'x10', 8'x10' and above.However, uncommon shapes can also be designed depending on the requirement.

Match your purpose with your wants

Now that you have established the purpose of your carpet, it's time to decide the kind of carpet you want. Decide the type (Kashmiri, Afghani, Persian,Modern etc.) ,the technique (handknotted,handwoven,handloom,handtuffted..etc)in which rug need to be made and the color (rust, bronze, multicolored, etc.) of the carpet you want. More intricate design involve greater workmanship which can be achieved using handknotted or handwooven technique consuming time both on the part of artist and weaver thereby determining the value of the carpet. However, other techniques can also be used depending upon customer requirement such as time factor,budget and durability.

Buy Carpets Depending on their Material

The second step to take before buying a carpet is deciding its material. Carpets are made from many different materials using natural fibers like Silk, Wool, Cotton etc and also using many different man made fibers like synthetic, Felt, Nylon, Hide, etc. Our rugs are made from natural fibers,either wool, silk or cotton mainly because these fibers have better durability,luster and beauty which manmade fiber don't have. These different materials have different qualities like Silk is durable and soft, Wools are stain-resistant and so on.

Buy Carpets Depending on their Maintenance

Different Carpets involves different maintenance, depending on the material and the technique in which they are made. Generally all handmade carpets are low on maintenance as these are made with natural fibers like silk, cotton, wool which are stain resistant and also colours are fast which don't fade when used and washed. However, in terms of Strength, handmade rug made with handknotted technique last for a longer period.
