Persian Carpet Storing

Rolling is the best way to store your Persian carpets as it creates the least amount of stress on the foundation. As far as possible, do not fold carpets unless they are of a coarser weave or are too large to be rolled. Folding can stretch and strain the warp threads of tightly-knotted carpets and cause the carpets to lose their shape, or worse, cause the warp to snap. If your Oriental carpets have to be folded, make sure they get a chance to be laid flat to breathe and straightened at least once a month. Watch your carpet dealer to learn the correct way of folding a carpet. Thick piled carpets such as Bidjars and Gabbehs should be folded with the pile outwards to prevent stressing the warp threads and crushing the pile along the fold line.
