TRIBAL & ARTISAN RUG TYPES
 
Some folks spend a lifetime studying the art and history of antique oriental rugs.  At Pasha Rugs we are here to make the buying process of handmade rugs as educational as you like.  Handmade rugs are most often made from wool, cotton or silk.  Silk rugs are generally more expensive than wool rugs and you can feel more comfortable placing wool rugs in the traffic areas of your home.  Consider the size you need--we have area rugs or small rugs and everything in between.  You may also think about whether you would be more comfortable with an antique rug, vintage rug or new rug (new, in rug time, means made within the past 10-20 years).
   
Handwoven rugs come in two basic types of weaves:  flat woven and pile (also called plush).  Both types come in many styles.  You can tell the style by the kind of knots used in weaving.  Learn more about types of weaves.  Handmade rugs originate from the weaving traditions of many areas in the world.  Turkey, China, India, Nepal, Pakistan, Azerbaijan, Afghanistan and Persia (Iran) are just a few countries from which we import our handmade rugs.  Learn about Area of Origins of handmade rugs.
 
There are many styles and patterns of handmade rugs, from tribal to formal.  Some styles and patterns include Herati, Agra, Tabriz, Kashan, Sarouk, Kerman, Ottoman, Gabbeh, Mogul, Isfahan, Bidjar, Hamadan, Heriz, Beluch, Oushak, and Kazak.  Learn more about styles and patterns of handmade rugs.
 
Another benefit of our handmade rugs is their eco-friendly nature.  Our handmade rugs are made from natural dyes and fibers (wool or silk).  There are none of the toxic off-gasing or petrochemical materials that you will encounter with synthetic rugs.
