ABOUT OUR VINTAGE AND ANTIQUE RUGS
Authentic vintage and antique rugs are crafted with unrivaled skill by gifted artisans who use natural materials and traditional techniques passed down from their ancestors. A laborious process of gathering of wool and dyeing it from plants, intricate weaving, and hand-knotting can take months or even years to be completed. These remarkable textiles come with a higher cost of investment, but with proper maintenance vintage rugs can last much longer than modern alternatives, preserving their worth over time. Additionally, they are famed for being particularly hard-wearing and easy to take care of. Our pricing takes into account the country of origin, age, condition, and unique quality of each piece.
When you shop with Loomologie, you get a genuinely aged product of remarkable quality, destined to last for years. Our products are carefully chosen to ensure they are natural and handmade, not artificial or synthetic. Every rug has been expertly restored and cared for by experienced professionals to preserve its originality. Committed to delivering an impeccable level of craftsmanship and uniqueness, we are passionate about helping our customers experience the intriguing beauty of timeless heirlooms.
From our point of view, hand-knotted rugs offer a multitude of advantages. Not only are they aesthetically remarkable due to their unparalleled beauty and detailed finishes, but their craftsmanship is also unmatched by any manufactured versions. In addition, their composition and structures made up of wool, cotton, and natural vegetable dyes, make them extremely sustainable and long-lasting. Owning a hand-knotted rug also is highly special, as no one else in the world will have the same piece as you, making it a unique and timeless heirloom that will only increase in value.
The presence of lanolin- a natural oil- in wool fibers provides lasting protection against stains and grime, rendering it highly suitable for areas with high foot traffic, child-friendly, and pet-friendly. These rugs are incredibly attractive while remaining incredibly durable and easy to maintain- a perfect combination.
Authentic Persian rugs boast abrash: wild variations of color and a horizontal gradation. As each rug is woven by hand utilizing hand-dyed wool, variations in dye batches cause abrash to be highly visible. Despite being a naturally-occurring occurrence, some machine-woven rug manufacturers are attempting to replicate abrash, recognizing the inherent beauty and value of the variance.
We extensively search worldwide to find reputable vendors who can meet our stringent quality requirements. Every one of our partners has been thoroughly assessed and fosters a close relationship with us. Rest assured they are a superb team of collaborators.
CARE AND CLEANING
For optimal care of your rug, we suggest gently vacuuming it on the lowest setting, with the beater bar off. If desired, debris may be swept away using a broom. For spot cleaning, use water, a non-abrasive cloth, and mild detergent only; to best protect the surface of your rug, we advise against rubbing or using a carpet cleaning machine or cleaners. To ensure effective deeper cleaning, professional cleaning is recommended. For periods of non-usage, rolling up the rug is suggested for storage.
