Persian rugs are the benchmark for all hand-knotted rugs throughout the world. The variety of colors, patterns and sizes are unlimited. Many of the vintage rugs have natural dyes, typically pre-1950. A trained eye can determine the region of Iran or tribe where a rug was woven. Some of the patterns, motifs and weaves have a regional story behind them, dating back hundreds of years. Rugs woven after 1950, especially today, are more difficult to determine specific regions because of the commercialization in the industry. Rug patterns, motifs, and colors, not so much the weave, are re-created in larger cities of Iran rather than their original tribal regions. Today’s rugs are woven for the desires of the world market rather than local and regional desires of the people of Iran. Regardless, Persian rugs manufactured today or pre-1950 are gorgeous and come in a variety of colors and patterns.
Persian rugs are immersion washed, a centuries-old process still used exclusively in the Middle East and right here at Steam Sweepers Rug Cleaning. A gentle process that has restored beauty and value to rugs for hundreds of years.

Most hand-knotted rugs are high value purchases of family heirlooms especially, especially Persian rugs. Sometimes it’s obvious, a food or beverage spill, maybe a four-legged companion accident. Sometimes not so obvious? wool rugs inherently hide 75% of soil deep within the rugs pile and foundation. As the rug naturally wears the fibers break down and fall deep into the rug’s foundation along with accumulated dust and everyday soiling. Over a rather short period of time the debris accumulates, and acts like sandpaper, with each step or pivot on the rug you make it depreciates longevity for a rug that can last century.
