"Persian carpet value is timeless works of art that exude beauty, elegance and quality."
Persian Rugs are known as one of the oldest oriental rugs. According to many collectors these rugs are the finest oriental rugs. If you want to buy a valuable Persian Carpet, first of all, it must be handmade. Machine made rugs lacks originality, durability, charm and investment.
In other words a machine-made rug is not a real oriental rug. They are simply for covering floors. While it takes at least 8 months to years for a handmade carpet to be made, it is minutes for a machine rug.
To trace the history of the Persian carpet is to follow a path of cultural growth of one of the greatest civilizations the world has ever known. And for many centuries, of course, the Persian carpet has received international acknowledgement for its artistic splendour. In palaces, famous buildings, rich homes and museums throughout the world a Persian carpet is amongst the most treasured possessions.
A Persian rug that is 100 years old or more is considered to be an antique. A rug that is between 50 and 99 years old is referred to as a semi - antique rug. A well-kept, genuine handmade Persian rug will increase in value over time.
