Where to buy a Turkish rug

The history of the Turkish rugs began with the nomadic tribes of central Asia who wove goat hair to make dense fabric from which to make their tents. This technique which they applied to floor coverings, were called "kilims." The floor coverings featured symbols of their pagan religion. Over time, the techniques for making the rugs developed and became more sophisticated. The rugs became larger and their appeal spread from Asia to the rest of the world. You can buy Turkish carpets for your home and business today.

Building supply store

They offer Turkish rugs, but not of the highest quality nor the most authentic. These rugs can vary in size and can be door mats or even area rugs. These rugs and carpets will look nice in any room, and may often be made out of materials which are easy to clean, making them a boon for homes with small children. Some of the rugs may be made of weather proof materials which can give the front porch a touch of elegance, regardless of the weather.

Flooring store

Flooring stores that carry a variety of flooring products ranging from flooring to carpets can be another source for Turkish rugs. The rugs here will most likely be contemporary, and will come in more than one size. The rug stores will have rugs made from natural fibres, many of which may be hand-woven. These rugs will look well in any room, and may come with instructions for care. Big Turkish rugs will look nice in larger rooms while smaller ones will look nice in a room with less space. You can even have two smaller rugs in a large room to give the impression of two distinct areas.

Antique rug dealers

If you wish to buy an antique kilm rug, then the best place to find them will be at a dealer who sells antique rugs. These rugs will vary in size and in price. There, you will find silk rugs as well as wool rugs. The designs will vary as well as the colours found within. Examine the rug carefully before buying it. If you are not certain whether the rug is an authentic kilim rug, you can have it examined by an expert before buying it. This could save you from spending money on a replica which is worth less than its selling price.
