In the East carpets have a very deep meaning and are something more than the rags you would throw on your floor and keep threading on it with your dirty and stinky feet. For the eastern mentality, and I mean first of all the Middle East, carpets usually play more of a decorative role. For instance, a Turk could easily place the carpet on the wall, and when his best friends gives him a gift in the form a new carpet, he would simple place it onto the opposite wall. You could think of it as something like paintings. A connoisseur of art does not look at the price when he goes to an auction.
A connoisseur can pay up to million dollars and more if he finds the work worthy. Then, depending to the item worth, he could either place it into his hall, his showcase room, or if it’s totally worthless he would just throw it in his children room and let it be torn by the restless and naughty kids. The carpets from famous makers can also cost quite high. If not millions but at least tens or hundreds of thousand dollars.
If you see the carpet as a decorative thing, you could follow the above advice and look around your local expos for some good and original works. If, on contrary, you are looking more for a practical use of carpets, which lies exactly in throwing them down to the floor and letting them getting smeared and dirty, and even on some occasions placing them outside, like for red carpet road purposes, then you are better off with local options from the cheapest stores or flea markets here and there. If you want to order a carpet online – it is even easier. Today online shops provide much more comfort than the actual markets, since you can see the models that aren’t yet in stock and know exactly how your pre-ordered item would look like. With good high-definition cameras, you can see the texture of one or another carpet quite clearly and if needed you can even zoom it sevenfold.
Carpeting stores also care about providing the quality products as much as it is possible. The reason to it is that most of people who browse items online are provided with plenty of choices and so choosing the consumer goods takes them a bit more caution.
