The hand-knotted Persian rug in the living room of the picture above has been in continuous use in various homes for over seventy years, and still looks great.
The contemporary "animal skin" rug seen in the dining room has not been around that long.
The timeless design of the Persian oriental rug consists of 100% natural and organic materials (wool pile on a cotton foundation.) Skilled artisans meticulously crafted the rug by tying tiny knots one-by-one by hand into its foundation over the course of many months. It is one-of-a-kind.
The stylish "animal skin" rug was machine made with 100% synthetic (man-made) materials on a production line. Many others like it were made at the same time.
As a consideration -- trusting that tomorrow will come -- which rug do you think will still be around, and on proud display ten, twenty, or thirty years from now?
