Owning a beautiful Persian carpet is the home dream of every person who pursues high artistic taste. But to choose a high-quality Persian carpet, you must also pay attention to methods. Experts provide us with several practical selection methods.


1. Fold: Make the carpet pile face outwards, you can see that there is a knot at the end of each thread of the handmade carpet. Handmade carpets will not be completely symmetrical, and if there are slight irregularities every 2 to 7 cm, it is acceptable.


2. Observation: Observing the back of the carpet, handmade carpets can clearly see the patterns, while woven carpets have no obvious features. The fringe of the handmade carpet is the natural extension of the warp strands, while the fringe of the woven carpet is sewn by the machine separately.


3. Hand feeling: Feel the inverted direction of the suede with your hand, and it will feel smooth on the side, while the reverse side will feel a little blocked. Moreover, the reflective effect of the forward side and the reverse side is different, the forward side looks lighter in color, and the reverse side has a darker color. The pile direction of the handmade carpet should be the same, about 45 degrees with the warp and weft plane. When furniture is placed on the carpet, the pile surface will not be directly overwhelmed. And the woven carpet with the pile surface inverted at 90 degrees will directly overwhelm the pile surface after placing the furniture, causing damage to the carpet.
