Excerpt from Oriental Rugs Many purchases of oriental rugs are unaware that the methods of manufacture in the East have changed greatly in the last thirty years, and that the change has an important bearing upon the character, condition, and quality of the rugs now offered for sale. Between 1875 and 890 it was a comparatively easy matter to purchase a good rug for the price which many dealers ask for a poor one to-day. Not all the rugs offered for sale were good, even then, but the majority of them were honest, individual, and cheap, partly because most of them were "home rugs"; that is, rugs made in Eastern homes, for use in the East. Rugs offered for sale to-day are, in most cases, not home products, made for Eastern use, but hand-woven factory products made to sell in the West and to sell quickly. Some of them are very good, some ordinary, some very bad. It is this condition which makes it important to the purchaser of rugs who desires to buy intelligently that he should learn how to examine a rug and estimate its value. The purpose of this book is to present some facts which will help lovers of good rugs to select them discriminatingly. The first question which the rug buyer should ask himself is, What is the material of the rug? If it is wool, is it all wool, or is there jute and other fiber, cotton, hair, or silk used with it. The second question concerns the quality or grade of the material, and the third question its disposition and relative strength. The bearing of the first question lies in the fact that jute and some other fibers which may be mixed with wool are brittle and rot. and that jute and cotton are cheap materials.
