Buying Authentic Persian Rugs Makes Sense Are you sick and tired of the static that your carpet generates? Are you disgusted of its stench lingering in the house no matter how often you clean it and use deodorants?  Did you finally decide to replace it with natural wood flooring and resolve the problem once and for all?  The result of the project is beautiful and you love it. However, something is missing.  It looks bear, feels hard under your feet and winter coming it will probably be cold.  You consider buying a few rugs to cover the most used areas where you want to put some warmth.  Are you confused as to which rug to buy? Wool Persian rugs are your best bet. Authentic Persian rugs have many advantages.  They are made of natural, organic wool.  Therefore, Persian rugs possess all the qualities of the natural fiber they are made of. Persian rugs will hardly stain, because wool has the ability to shed water, an important quality since the composition of stains is made mostly of water.  Persian rugs are static free and fire resistant since wool itself does not burn. Thanks to the protein in the wool, Persian rugs have this natural shine that will give warmth and brightness to any room.  Wool is easy to clean because dust and dirt don’t sink to the bottom unlike nylon or other synthetic fibers, but stay on the surface.  This property of the wool is due to the way the fiber is naturally made.  This quality of the wool also makes Persian carpets resilient to tear and wear, thus turning spending into investing. Some other qualities of Persian rugs are that they are soft to touch and they feel great under your feet.  It is very pleasant for children to crawl and lay down on them.  Persian rugs are a great insulator.  They are also practical and versatile and match any décor.  Today, you can find many sizes and many styles in Persian Rugs that include from small to palace size rugs, including a styles that range from traditional to modern and contemporary, always keeping the quality and the beauty of the different designs and authenticity of the colors intact. We invite you to visit www.PersianRugz.com to browse and take a look at all the intricate designs and vibrant colors of a Persian Rug. Their vibrant colors is not just the result of the quality of the dye used as we talked about at the beginning of this article, but also because of the quality the wool has to hold those colors, rendering them luminous and vivid. Wool Persian Rugs are natural and made of 100% of renewable product and buying a Persian Wool Carpet will also benefit the local farmers that produce that special wool for your pleasure.  All this information does not come without a few words of caution.  Persian Rugs are in general more expensive to buy. Considering all the benefits, they end up being much cheaper than the machine made synthetic carpet because with time, Persian Rugs become heirloom and you never get rid of them.  They can also be a little bit more expensive to clean because they have to be professionally dry-cleaned.  Like any investment, good care should be given to them for many years of enjoyment. When the time comes to buy a Persian Rug, make sure you are buying the authentic product.  There are many rugs on the market that go under the name of Persian and Oriental rug.  However, if you read closely, you will see that they are not made of wool, they are not hand made, and certainly are not Persian.   All they have done is copy a design and mass produced it.  A Persian Rug always comes with a certificate of authenticity.  Ask for it.   Are you sick and tired of the static that your carpet generates?
