Mid Century Rugs
Antique rugs are decorative heavy textiles that were created at least 80 years ago. This general category includes carpets from all over the world, Orient and Occident alike. Apart from the purely utilitarian function, they constitute the record of our ancestors’ skills, beliefs, and artistic sensitivity.
What distinguishes antique from contemporary creations is traditional craftsmanship. Hand-made of natural materials (wool, cotton, silk, sometimes silver or gold threads), authentic antique rugs are qualitative, ready to serve for centuries, provided proper maintenance.
