Pakistan Rug Cleaning Cheshire
Pakistan Rug Cleaning
Pakistan rugs date right back to the 11th century, but from the 16th is where they became more prevalent- at the beginning of the Mughal Dynasty where the last successor of Timur, Babur founded the Mughal Empire. Before this, Moenjodaro and Harappa, two ancient cities of the Indus Valley inhabited the art of making carpets. It has even been said that the Indus Valley first developed the use of floor textiles.
During the Mughal Dynasty, historians say that Pakistan rugs were replicas of those in Persia- with the detailing and weft techniques being very similar. With such beautiful designs, the rugs that were made in South Asia became undeniably sought out- the demand for them spread worldwide. With their high-knot densities and vibrant designs, it was no wonder that these carpets were even made for the Mughal emperors.
It wasn’t until the seventeenth century that they hit England- during the British Colonial era, they were mostly used in female jails until after the independence where they really saw their time. Now, Pakistan rugs tend to be made by Afghan refugees who are residing in Pakistan- being a leading export for Pakistan revenue.
Pakistan rugs that are now mass-produced are either known as Mori carpets or Persian; Mori carpets being distinguished by their Bochara-inspired and Turk patterns that are of a single warp and Ziegler carpets that are still manufactured in Pakistan but resemble traditional Persian rugs with a double warp instead. With such a distinctive colour palette of a ruby red background that is laced with creams and pale blues, these Australian wool weaved carpets are on the same level of quality as silk-based rugs.
How to Clean Your Pakistan Rug
From being so durable due to their asymmetrical high knot densities and silk-like foundations, Pakistan rugs must be looked after well to maintain their quality. Like all Oriental rugs, Pakistan rugs are handmade, so it is imperative that they are treated with care and consideration. Often, these rugs are tea washed with a chemical so that they appear older and darker.
What you can do at home is rotate your rug regularly, hoover all areas, keep it out of direct sunlight and ensure that wear is distributed in all areas.
