You often tend to shift in new places, decorate your house with articulate furniture, paint the walls, and basically spend lots of time to make your house look beautiful. Not many are really art fans. But if you are an art connoisseur then you can surely spare some time and thought into buying art pieces. One such art love is the love for rugs. Apart from providing the much needed comfort and security these pieces of cloth have a long lineage of beautiful designs and intricate decorations.
Every region has its own share of rug material and rug history. Almost all the regions present in this world have some unique characteristics with respect to the rugs they produce. The fabrics used the dye colors, or even the design signatures that can range from naturalistic flowers to animal patterns, from mosque domes to calligraphy art imprinted on them.
Sellers are always more than happy to showcase their rug designs to you, and you can probably get them for a good deal. However, with the technological advancements taking place recently, there is a new wave of buying rugs online. The only shortcoming of this buying rugs online approach can be that though you will get to see the rug and all of its design, you would not be able to actually feel the fabric and texture with your own hands. That serves as a disadvantage because rugs shown online can have attractive prices, but their fabric and other specifications might probably not live up to your expectations.
Following are certain areas of caution that you can employ while buying rugs online.
Some rugs can be the work of a single weaver, if this is the case, then make sure you are buying your rug from a trusted source with a great reputation.
Do your research.
All the geographical regions present have their own style and quality of rugs. Ensure that you are well researched on that front.
Ensure the condition
Many a times the condition of the rugs that you need might change. Rugs take a long time to b woven; hence the weavers tend to make mistakes, but don’t misjudge these mistakes as related to quality. Look out for more serious damage like moth or damage due to sunlight.
So if buying online is the way you want to go ahead then treat them as an art not as a piece of cloth no matter where you buy them.
