An antique or vintage rug can be a big investment (although you may be surprised to learn that they can be more cost effective than opting for a new model!) and many lack confidence to care for such a statement piece. Mehdi unpacked some valuable advice around what to look for when buying a vintage rug and how to care for it.
Kilims are often a bit less expensive than other plushy antique rugs with lots of pile.

Available in every hue of the rainbow, from garnet red to blush pink and mint green, it’s hard not to feel bewitched by these beautiful creations.
