Oriental Rugs enhance a home without a doubt. They are quality, heavy textiles that are pile woven or flat woven. If flat woven they are compile of silks, wool, and cotton. Since the High Middle Ages, oriental rugs have been an integral part of oriental cultures of origin, as well as of the European and, later on, the North American culture. They were created originally for a symbolic purpose. Some examples are: Islamic prayer rugs (sajjadah), Jewish Torah ark covers (parochet), and Christian altar covers. When your guests walk into your living room that harbors an oriental rug, they will ultimately suspect that there is a history that went into creating the rug.
Since Oriental Rugs are of a higher quality and a higher price, it is important to have them professionally cleaned at least once a year. It is best to do it not in Winter for obvious reasons. This will preserve the life of your rug including its natural dyes. Some Oriental Rugs, such as Turkish Rugs use dyes that are plant based as follows:
• Red from Madder (Rubia tinctorum) roots,
• Yellow from plants, including onion (Allium cepa), several chamomile species (Anthemis, Matricaria chamomilla), and Euphorbia,
• Black: Oak apples, Oak acorns, Tanner’s sumach,
• Green by double dyeing with Indigo and yellow dye,
• Orange by double dyeing with madder red and yellow dye,
• Blue: Indigo gained from Indigofera tinctoria.

Stains: Stains are another surefire path to premature rug wear, whether due to pets, food, or another source.
