Did your son or daughter recently purchase a new home? Want to give your mom and dad a great gift for their special wedding anniversary? If you are looking for the perfect gift for someone with discerning taste, you should look no further than a hand-knotted oriental rug!
Oriental rugs are unique, exotic, practical and long-lasting. Here are four of the best reasons an Oriental rug makes the perfect gift for your loved one:
Oriental Rugs Never Go Out of Style
Oriental rugs have a classic design that can be as subtle or as bold as anyone would like. Darker rugs tend to anchor light in bright rooms, and lighter designs bring color and freshness to an otherwise dreary space. Graphic designs can help bring a pop of interest to stark, minimalist décor, while more subtle, classic patterns can help bring Old World flair to a formal setting.
No matter what rug you choose for the recipient, as long as you keep their personal aesthetic in mind, there is no way you can go wrong with a quality hand-made Oriental rug. It will always be in style and will likely always be cherished by its recipient!
An Oriental Rug Is A Work of Art
Handmade Oriental rugs are unique art pieces that often tell a story all on their own. This is true no matter how “young” (newer rugs) or “old” (antiques) a rug is. Every knot, color, and design element used to make the rug tells the story of the weaver and their family, the culture they come from, and the region in which they reside.
Whether you choose a silk rug in light colors or a sturdy wool rug in a variety of rich colors, an Oriental rug is a work of art that not only showcases its recipient’s taste, it shows off the talents of the weaver, as well.
Oriental rugs always garner compliments and surreptitious glances of envy, no matter where they are placed. Everyone who loves art will love having a one-of-a-kind Oriental rug in their personal collection.
Oriental Rugs Last for Generations
When you gift someone an Oriental rug, it is more than likely that several generations will inherit your gift and admire it over the years.
How many times have you received a gift that looks beautiful but doesn’t last long enough? It’s disappointing to receive a lovely gift and then have to throw it away a few years later because it didn’t hold up. This will never happen with an Oriental rug. When you gift someone an Oriental rug, you know it is a gift that will last for generations to come.
Oriental Rugs Are Environmentally Friendly
Oriental rugs are made entirely from sustainable materials with minimum impact on the environment. They are made from natural materials such as wool, silk, and cotton, and contain all-natural plant and vegetable dyes that are available in nature. Everything on a true Oriental rug is biodegradable, with no man-made chemical treatment involved. This is why gifting an oriental rug is one way to encourage and support sustainability.
