The main features are: knotting (strictly by hand), the country of origin (among those considered manufacturers of oriental carpets), the design that is characteristic of the production area and takes its name from the city in which it is made and the material (wool, cotton, silk, etc).

To choose the most suitable color for the carpet to be placed in the furniture, you must first consider the color of the floor on which it will be placed and laid. So choose light colors on a dark floor and vice versa if you prefer contrast. otherwise, the colors of the floor are matched for a sense of continuity.

The dimensions of a carpet must be chosen according to the area they have to cover, such as for the living room having a three-seater sofa (about 2m) you will choose a size that protrudes from the armrests of the sofa (therefore at least 2.50 m)
and that it is deep enough to allow the carpet to be stopped under the feet of the sofa (about 160/170).
However, we keep in mind that if there are no obstacles in the room (columns, stairs, fireplaces) close to the carpet,
the aforementioned measure can be enlarged and the result will be that of a much larger room.

The three main parameters are:
– The dimension
– The design / color

found close to the fringe in some carpets.

they are knotted by hand, intertwining the wool or silk threads, the knots.

The vacuum cleaner is part of the daily cleaning of the carpet avoiding the fringes.

The first rule is to use it even in summer, that is, do not remove it or store it in the dark or damp,
but if we have to put it away for a long time, we can wrap it inside with newspaper pages,
which contain petroleum, and therefore are a deterrent for moths.

If the stain is similar to the one we find in woolen clothing (grease, coffee, tea, etc.), take a damp sponge soaked in degreasing detergent (for dishes, it’s fine) and rub it on the stain,
rinse and dry by dabbing with a dry cloth and finally with a hairdryer, so that the moisture does not remain in the texture.
