About Safavieh: In the past thirty years Safavieh has come a long way from an artisan family business to a high tech corporation with very sophisticated operations in terms of manufacturing and distribution. We’ve grown from one showroom on Madison Avenue to become an international player with half a million square feet of warehouse space and our own manufacturing facilities on three continents. We now drop-ship thousands of packages daily to end-use customers on behalf of our retailers in all 50 states, plus Canada, South America, Europe and Asia. Within the home furnishings industry, Safavieh is most successful in combining the best of high tech and high touch. We’ve always been considered the authority on fine quality, craftsmanship and style. We’ve kept that focus as we grew our logistics and warehousing capabilities, leading to strong partnerships with the largest retailers in the country. We serve every channel of distribution, from big box stores to multi-unit chains to designer showrooms with the right products and price points to build their businesses. Our Mission: For four generations, the family behind the Safavieh brand has dedicated its talents and resources to providing uncompromising quality. We believe there is no equal to the durability, beauty and artistry of handmade rugs and well-crafted furniture. We focus our research and development on creating the highest quality products consumers can buy within a broad range of budgets. Our mission is to perpetuate the interior furnishings crafts – to lead with innovation while preserving centuries-old traditions in all categories: from antique reproductions, to transitional designs, to the most fashion-forward contemporary styles. Our Background: Since Safavieh’s inception in 1914, consumer education has been our core philosophy. Informed customers and our commitment to quality have helped us become the world’s finest weaver of luxury rugs. That commitment has been rewarded with numerous industry accolades and recognition by America’s top designers and architects. Safavieh began as a supplier of antique Oriental rugs to leading interior designers. We continue to curate one of the country’s finest collections of antique rugs from the great weaving centers of the world, and to work with notable style leaders globally. As a result, our archives are limitless. We study fabric, color and lifestyle trends two to three years before developing a new collection in our New York design studios. Cycles often begin in the fashion world before filtering to products for the home, so we look for trends in couture clothing and color forecasts as well. Safavieh creates its designer-quality rugs in the major rug weaving centers of the world: Persia, India, Tibet, Nepal, China and Pakistan. We have the unique ability to produce each Safavieh rug in the region best-suited to each particular design. Although our artisans are scattered far and wide, they are all equally talented. But each country, city and village has its own time-honored techniques and special look – qualities we incorporate into our designs. Safavieh Now Based in the United States since 1978, Safavieh combines rug and home furnishings showrooms with a varied wholesale business, supplied by its own production lines from the classical rug weaving centers of the world. The company is headquartered in Port Washington, New York. Its flagship showroom is located at 153 Madison Avenue in New York City. Permanent showrooms are open year round in Atlanta, Las Vegas and High Point, NC. Safavieh began its licensing program in 2006 with Thomas O’Brien, a longtime customer whose taste we had admired for decades. In 2007, we successfully introduced a highly anticipated Martha Stewart Rugs collection. In 2009 we launched Safavieh Couture, a licensing program with renowned designers including Jamie Drake, David Easton, Suzanne Kasler and Thom Filicia. January 2011 marked the introduction of the coveted Ralph Lauren and Lauren Ralph Lauren rug collections by Safavieh. The uniqueness and beauty of Safavieh’s own programmed collections have been acknowledged with the America’s Magnificent Carpets Awards, and our unparalleled service has been recognized with awards such as the Home Decorators Collection Vendor of the Year.
Here are some basic rug care info and tips to extend the life of your area rug.
1. Wool Rugs Will Shed.
a. Shedding within the first few months is typical on any wool area rug and is not uncommon to continue up to 1 year after installment. While the shedding may be annoying in the beginning, this is NOT a defect, but rather the natural way the loose woolen fibers work their way out of the area rug.
b. You can mitigate shedding by not using vacuums that have agitation bars. Vacuum the rug regularly but without the agitation bar marring the rugs pile, this will extract fibers in a more consistent even manner.
c. Hand Knotted rugs will shed less than Hand Tufted rugs.
2. Hand Hooked Rugs Will Snag.
a. If you purchase a hand hooked rug be aware that the loops in the constuction of the rug will occasionally "pull". This is remedied by simply cutting the snag at the pile to remove the snag.
b. You can help reduce the chances of snagging your rug by once again not using a vacuum with an agressive agitation bar. In addition, pets with longer nails are a frequent source of pulling of these loops from the pile.
