Since Shah Abbas 1 (1587 – 1629) established looms within the Imperial palace to weave exceptional carpets this central Persian town has been well known for the quality and style of its output. The town today with a population of over 400,000 is the heart of the country and was chosen by several ruling dynasties as the center of their empire.
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.
