Oriental Rugs Glossary

<< Back to Glossary List


The "Sun Finish" wash includes not only the actual cleaning of the carpet but also its processing (ennobling) through the effect of being exposed to the sun which represents an increased value to the rug. Often after the production of a carpet the colors still seem "loud". Through this sun wash the colors become softer and sometimes get an antique look to it which of course depends on the duration of the exposure to the sun.
