  • Old World Persian and Turkish Oriental Rugs - Silk Road Collections in Santa Fe, NM

Antique Oriental Rugs

Silk Road Collections

During the 20th century, the designs and styles of antique Persian and Turkish Oriental rugs began to change as western demand turned tribal cottage industries into commercial productions. Pressure to meet world market demand challenged the weavers ability to preserve traditional antique Oriental rug design and master craft techniques. “They don't make them like they used to”, certainly holds true when it comes to ethnic Persian and Turkish Oriental rug design and quality.

As time passes, antique Oriental Rugs become even more beautiful, rare and valuable. It's not just about age. Hand knotted Persian and Turkish Antique Oriental rugs prepared the traditional way using a combination of 100% organic natural dyes and hand spun wool and silk, have a more lustrous patina and depth due to oxidation with the air and sun over the long run. The color shifts either darker or softer over time. You won't ever want to replace it with a new one.

Just a note to say "thanks" for the great rug that I purchased from you during the holidays. I found some clips that have plastic inserts so they do not damage the rug and I hung it in my office. I've also started reading about Persian rugs and I'm having a lot of fun going to estate sales in L.A. and checking out the bargains. Thanks again for making our trip so much fun.

Mark Dawson

While visiting Santa Fe, my wife and I bought a small Turkman rug in your gallery. It arrived today. The new fringe looks great, and the mat makes a big difference. Thank you. It's beautiful.

Peter H. Pawlowicz

Thank you so much for the runner. It goes with the hassock you so extremely kindly gave me last year. It also perfectly fits a traffic pattern in my house. It's lovely.

Sheila

We wish to thank you for the two beautiful rugs we now have hanging in our house. Also we very much appreciate the prompt response to my request to see more rugs made in Persia. The copy of your rug book and the appraisal arrived also.

Smitty Hoegstett

Many thanks for the rugs. It has been a pleasure doing business with you.I'm sure we will be associated in the future.
