CARPET SHOPPING CONSIDERATION
Always make your decisions about your carpet shopping after visiting some authenticate websites and checking their situations and facilities which they have provided for their customers for online shopping and then choose your own suitable carpet or rug. Pay attention to carpet experts and sellers as well but never defer absolutely to their ides. Choose a carpet according to your need, budget, and your tact.
CARPET STUDYING ACCORDING to SIZE AND DESIGN
Paying attention to carpet sizes are important in carpet shopping as well. A few centimeters difference from top to bottom in a carpet in negligible which is one of the handmade carpets features, but more than that is one kind of defects, especially in small rugs.
By folding carpet in half, the symmetry of the carpet design can be found according to the horizontal and vertical axis of the carpet. It can be checked by graded rulers. The color symmetry in woven design should be checked as well and make sure that all the elements and objects are perfectly weaved and done and every line, object or element is following its own natural continuation and is not suddenly broken or disconnected.
CARPET STUDYING IN NATURAL LIGHT AND COLOR STABILITY
You may also check your carpet under the natural light. As the carpet looks darker on the woven direction, so the carpet design looks more definable on the opposite side of the woven direction, also the colors of different parts of the carpet must look even from bottom to top, especially in “Kaf Sade” style ( which is mainly weaved in one color) it should look piebald in any part of the carpet, even in knots.
The knots should stand even in their colors from beginning till the end, and if not, it shows the carpet is colored by aniline colors, to check this, you may apply a damp cloth on the suspicious parts and if they stand still, you can be sure about the color stability.
CARPET STUDY ON PILE QUALITY
You may also check the quality of piles by studying their durability, glitz, and flexibility. Carpets with soft piles are less durable in compare with carpets with thick piles and also, they absorb more dust and don’t get cleaned like as carpets with thick piles.
CARPET STUDY ON KNOTS DENSITY, WOOF COMPACTION AND DESIGN HARMONY
Carpet texture and its weave may be the highlights of choosing carpets and as the weave of carpet is more clear you may check the carpet’s back for that.by studying your carpets back, you may get lots of usable points and information such as number of knots, knots density, woof compaction as well as design harmony. Knots density is higher normally at the bottom of the carpet.
CARPET STUDY ON EROSION AND DARNING
By studying the back of the carpet, the chance of recognizing darning, erosion or bad weaving gets higher. Darned parts are normally rougher and tighter in compare with non-darned parts and with a bit of accuracy sewing parts are recognizable. You may also fold the carpet on suspicious parts, in case of eroding a cracking noise will be heard. Short length of the woof never is a sign of elegance and to check the carpet’s woof quality and its polish, it should be rubbed by hand and it should be at same heights in all woofs with no undulation.one of the main reason which causes undulation in carpets is rough washing as well as disordered polish.
CARPET SHOPPING FROM AUTHENTICATE FIRMS WITH GUARANTIES
Never do your carpet shopping from unknown or suspicious people. To not to waste your time, money and avoid facing latter worries it is more logical to buy your carpets from authenticating firms with good track records.
