You may be in the market for oriental rugs, and why not? Not only do these beautiful tapestries really tie a room together, they’re also a fabulous investment that can turn into a family heirloom. But what could you be looking to pay for such an item? Well, that all depends.
An antique rug, roughly 8 foot by 10 foot, can fetch over ten thousand dollars. Newer rugs often retail between $2000-$5000. Because a genuine oriental rug is hand-made and unique from rug to rug, pricing is hard to pin down and varies greatly based on the material of the rug, the quality of the pattern, and the condition of the item. Overall, the value of a rug is more accurately assessed on an item-by-item basis.
Of course, one you have a rug, you will need a trusted company to take care of it for you. Aegis specializes in the cleaning and care of oriental rugs. We will always handle your investment with care.
