When you walk on your antique rug, it encounters a lot of stress against the hard floor. The back of the rug, or the knots, as well as the foundation, need to be protected as best as possible. There are rug pads with holes in them and solid rug pads. In this case, the solid on is best. Moving a step ahead, a solid pad with some sort of texture on the surface is even better. This texture can safely grab your antique rug and keep it from crawling, hence reducing wear.
Persian area rugs are admired far and wide for their intricate design and deeply hued colors. Originally crafted for the use of wandering tribes, they provided instant flooring over the sand floors of tents. These types of rugs are made in the Middle Eastern areas of Persia in modern day Iraq, Iran, and Turkey. They are well known for their typically ornate, deeply pigmented patterns. Persian rugs are produced both in hand-knotted and machine woven methods. The hand-knotted types have been known to last for over one hundred years.
Protects the floor: Area-rugs can cause scratches to floors. The dust and dirt particles that collect beneath a carpet can easily scratch a floor when it is walked on. Pads under the rugs prevent this from happening.
