There are a few benefits to buying vintage Persian rugs. Handmade rugs attract a premium when newly produced, which you don’t have to pay with a vintage carpet. Sometimes faults or problems in weaving do not show until the rug has been used for a while. With a vintage carpet these problems would have already come to the fore. A good vintage Persian rug will have good shiny wool and the colours would have a certain depth. These attributes in a vintage carpet usually improve even more with age. The other benefit with Persian vintage rugs is that there is a much bigger variety and sizes to choose from compared to the antique rugs. A good vintage Persian rug can be an investment. Vintage carpets are very good value for money purchase. Always make sure you buy your vintage Persian rug from a reputable dealer.
