This client is a well-known collector in Saudi Arabia who has been searching for rare treasures from all over the world for many years. Among them, silk carpets, known as the "King of Carpets", are also an important type of collection in his collection. This time he placed an order for 6 large-sized handmade silk carpets from us at one time. The total value is around US$100,000, which is a considerable investment for ordinary people. But for him, it is a great value to buy these classic floor artworks that can be handed down from generation to generation.

In fact, in the international collection market, handmade carpets have always been the focus of auction houses and collectors. It is not uncommon for carpets to be sold at sky-high prices. Especially the beautifully patterned, limited-edition handmade rugs. Many collectors use it as a collectible and investment product. There are large-scale handmade carpet auctions at Sotheby's and Christie's.

For example, in 2013, a red handmade carpet with a sickle leaf design was auctioned at the Sotheby's auction house in the United States for US$33 million (approximately more than RMB 200 million). A record-high price in the history of handmade carpet auctions. What's more noteworthy is that this antique carpet, which has been around for more than 300 years, is still in good condition. Buyers can even lay it on the ground and continue using it.

It is precisely because handmade carpets are both practical and collectible. It is still widely popular today. It is not only a household item, but also a work of art, a kind of wealth that can be passed down and handed down from generation to generation. In today's fast-paced, mechanized era, the handcrafting and craftsmanship contained in handmade carpets are particularly precious.

And each handmade carpet is carefully woven using fine silk or wool as raw materials. For example, a 2.7x3.6-meter handmade silk carpet requires two skilled weavers to spend nearly 50 kilograms of high-quality silk and takes a year to complete. This method of hand-weaving carpets consumes a lot of labor, time, and material costs. Therefore the price is relatively high and it is considered a luxury product. This kind of carpet is very popular among high-end consumers and collectors due to its exquisite craftsmanship and excellent quality. For them, handmade carpets are not just household items but also works of art and investments.

The exquisite craftsmanship, long production time, and tedious weaving process make handmade carpets a kind of home decoration with both practical and artistic value. This kind of carpet is not just a floor covering, it is the product of the hard work of the craftsmen, and every inch is full of life and emotion.

In recent years, as the production of handmade carpets has become scarce, their prices have continued to rise, making them a popular choice among collectors and investors. A carefully woven handmade rug not only adds luxury and class to your home, but it is also a wealth that can be passed down.
