Samarkand - Khotan Rugs
This antique Khotan rug from China flaunts symmetrical branching patterns woven in chocolate and creams that cover a soft blue and creme central field. An amount of abrash (a natural change in color, that occurs when different dyes are used and is very common in antique pieces which gives individuality to the rug.) is seen in the center of the design which creates unique coloration's. The border contains three rows of symbols woven in chocolate and creme that complete the overall design.
Vacuum your rug frequently and use a vacuum which uses suction and does not have bristles. If possible, set vacuum to low power setting and vacuum the rug up and down and do not use a back-and-forth motion.
If possible, rotate the rug every few years to allow foot traffic to be spread evenly and shade the rug from direct sunlight to avoid fading in areas.
A rug pad is recommended on all surfaces to prevent slipping and stop marking if on floors with grooves or lines. Professional cleaning is recommended every two or three years.
