Antique Rugs

​The fundamentals of weaving antique rugs have not changed for centuries many of the earliest known techniques and materials are still in use in the major rug producing regions of the world today such as Turkey, China, Persia, India, Morocco, and Europe. Antique rugs can stand on their own for historical importance and cultural significance. Each culture ensures the longevity of their design iconography through the making of the rugs. Most high-end antique carpets, especially those from Persia or India, have traditionally been made in sophisticated urban settings where a high value was placed on such fine artistry. The more tribal and casual carpets were woven by nomadic tribesmen and women as they had access to coarser material and didn't have the advantage of an established rug loom.

The Golden age of rug weaving in India, Persia and Turkey occurred in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries due to the Industrial revolution in Europe. For the newly emerged merchant class at the time, oriental rugs primarily functioned as beautiful status symbols of wealth and good taste. Most of the rugs in the Doris Leslie Blau collection were produced during this period.

Antique carpets can vary in color, size, design, and material. The current trend in buying antique rugs is towards neutral colors which can be used in any environment. Although antique rugs come in a myriad of colors, every rug has the potential to anchor a room and to create an inviting ambiance. After all, Edgar Allen Poe once wrote that " the soul of the apartment is in the carpet."
