Because Rugman online store combines the extraordinary savings on rugs, great customer service, and a risk-free policy to make buying an authentic, handmade Persian and Oriental rug as hassle-free as possible.
Most Persian rugs have 100% woolen pile, cotton or goat hair foundation, and in some finer rugs, silk is used as the foundation, as the pile, or in conjunction with wool in the pile. The exact materials used in the making of each individual rug should be stated in their description table.
Oriental rugs last a lot longer: The average lifespan of artificial-fiber broadloom carpeting is about 10 years of family wear-and-tear. With a little care, a hand-woven Oriental rug will last 60 years or more. Pick your Oriental rug well - it may outlive you!
Oriental rugs are healthier: According to the American Lung Association, artificial-fiber broadloom carpeting are a major indoor pollutant, causing eye, nose and throat irritation, headaches, skin irritations; shortness of breath or cough, and fatigue. They can also act as a 'sink' for chemical and biological pollutants including pesticides, dust mites, and fungi.
Oriental rugs are easier to clean: Have you ever rented one of those steam machines to clean your wall-to-wall carpets? Ever noticed how they never seem to get completely clean? Didn't you just wish you could roll it up and send it away to be thoroughly cleaned? With an Oriental rug, you can.
Rugman skips the regular chain of mark-up-mad rug distributors and market makers, allowing us to offer you these works of art for the same price they can be found in the country of origin's local bazaars, or cheaper. This allows us to offer you high quality handmade rugs at discount rug prices!
