Jan David Winitz, famous rug expert and founder / president of Claremont Rug Company in Oakland, California, has put together an educational tool to learn about carpets and support potential buyers. He established six levels of quality, from Museum quality to Reproduction – to help establish value and importance of a carpet. Few of us have ever seen carpets/fragments from the 16th, 17th and early 18th century . But we may have a chance to look at and perhaps consider buying an early 20th century rug. Best to be informed about quality, color, dyes, wool and designs.

Here is a link to the Rug Pyramid.
