Rug Glossary

Term: Oriental Rug Fibers

Description: Oriental Rugs may be woven with wool, silk and cotton or synthetic yarn. Antique Persian Rugs use wool, silk and cotton that was locally sourced. Some very high-end Persian Rugs used silk and even gold thread.

Our own line of Oriental Rugs are woven with New Zealand wool on a cotton or silk foundation.

Our Tibetan Rugs, which are prominent in the contemporary design, use wool from sheep grazed at high altitude in Nepal or Tibet.
