Prom the point of view of durability Oriental rugs ore highly recommended,, and there are sevei-al well-made domestic rugs —- Brussels, Wiltons, A.t- rnirjsters, utiil Velvets. •• ' • Orieiital Rugs '. Oriental rugs are those woven i;i one piece on hand looms in eastern countries. They have .ft Iliieh,' hemp, or .wool warp and filling and a pile of tufts of woolen or occasionally silk yarn knotted into the warp by hand and evened with scissors. Weaving rugs in this way is, of course, a labor- ioas process, requiring great dex- ' terity and skill, and for, this rea son Oriental -rugs .are never cheap, not even.,Irt 'the Orient, : • The value of a 'genuine Oriental nig depends upon the design, the fastness of the color, the compactness and . evenness of ihe weave, and the number ' of V.uoU to the aiuare inch. Antique Oriental rugs are much .'-/ought alter but dan- p.erous for any but the most skilled to buy, for unscrupulous dealers have often been known to treat new rps ' with dyes, pount 1 them with hammers, and then sell thf-m lor antique. Ortf ntal nigs add to the richness of any room In the house. | • . -: ..Brussels i Brussels ' carpets are so called became tliey were fast irmmifac •turn!-on-Flemish'looms in the'clty ; of Briisscis.' 1 They, arc . loop-pile catpetsp marte / with two or ihmp warps aiirt flhe .or two.-fillings.-This carripUng fe .made 'about twenty seven inches wide. but Is often .into'' rugs . with borders to rorrer.porid.' • :'ln :eitathinlng Brussels nigs look at the batk to ECC whether Ihe backing- thread is smooth and clean.- Lumpy looking thread is ft sign-of'poor-quality.
