The value of your rug is influenced by age, color, condition, current rug trends, designs, size, technical features, and much more.

You can give us a call, email us, or use our contact form to set up an appraisal appointment.

The rug market is fueled by certain types of rugs, and these categories vary frequently. Rugs trends, like fashion trends, come and go, and the value of your rug may change depending on how in-demand it is. We recommend having your rug appraised on a frequent basis, about every three years or so.

If you require an appraisal for insurance purposes, ask us about our written appraisals. These appraisals are official and detail both the market value and the replacement value of your rug. Many insurance companies will not honor written appraisals over three years old, so make sure your papers are up to date.

Have a lot of rugs? Ask us about our rug portfolio and what it can do for you. Call us at 972-733-0400 or visit us, Monday through Saturday from 9AM to 5:30PM.… Read the rest “Persian and Oriental Rug Appraisals”

Oriental silk rugs are one of the finest intricate handmade rugs. The best of the Oriental rugs are also known as Persian rugs or Persian carpets. These fine handmade rugs are majority of times highly priced. Oriental Silk Rugs are usually made with Natural Silk fibers that come from a silkworm, these rugs are priceless. The natural silk rugs usually come in natural colors such as clear, yellow, light brown shades. Whereas, man made silk fiber rugs  known as viscose rayon silk rug fibers come in colored rainbow colors. 

 

Oriental Natural Silk Rugs vs Oriental Viscose Silk Rugs

In order to recognize an Oriental natural silk rug from an Oriental viscose silk rug, one must perform the “Silk Fiber Test” or the “Rug Burn Test”. When you burn a small fiber from a silk rug, the burning strand will smell like burning hair. Also when you remove the flame, the natural fiber will stop burning an the ashes are similar to burned paper ashes. Light and powdery.

Wearas, if you burn a fiber from the viscose rayon rug, the smell, is that of a burned wire, the residue is waxy and smears. After your remove the flame, the fiber will burn on.

If you are not sure what kind of silk rug you own, just bring your valued Oriental Rug in for a written appraisal. Our experts will examine and explain some history behind your valued rug. Our showroom is at 18000 Preston Rd, Dallas, TX 75252, or simply give us a call at (972) 733-0400.

Persian Silk Rugs

Persian silk rugs are the most intricate, and often most valuable, of all hand-knotted rugs. Persian silk rugs come in most breathtaking pattern and designs, and the fibers are naturally dyed and don’t color run while hand-washing. Wear as, synthetic died rugs have issues while washing and grooming. The natural silk rugs are fine, yet made of strong protein silk fibers used in these rugs allow more knots per square inch to be tied giving a clearer pattern with more detail and increased likeness to real-life, a good analogy being that of an HDTV over a regular TV.

The most valuable silk rugs are 100% silk from the warp and weft to the pile. Because of their silk foundation there can be more warp strings (visible as tassels or fringes at the ends of the rug) across with width – meaning more knots can be tied in a given area.Read the rest “Oriental Silk Rugs Dallas”
