In the spotlight this month…

Signature Rugs

There is no mistaking the superior quality of a signature (signed) rug.

These works of art exhibit flawless craftsmanship, superb materials, unique & outstanding design, and incredible color combinations.

Signature Persian rugs come mostly from the weaving regions of Nain, Tabriz, Qum, and Isfahan.

This distinctive symbol of the weaver can be of:

*the workshop where it was made
*the weaver who wove the rug
*year made
*the region of origin
*and in some cases, all the above.

The rug pictured below is a signature rugs, looks good, doesn’t it?

Twin Rugs

What else is happening in February?

Well, there are rare occasions when a master rug-weaver will use one design to make identical rugs, creating both at the same time.

Because sometimes two rugs look better in a room than one.

Especially when placed either side of a bed or living room for beautiful symmetrical interior design.

If that sounds like your kind of thing, then look out for a message showcasing these ‘Persian Twins’ – later this month.
