Always vacuum the carpet in the direction of the pile to avoid unnecessary wear and tear.

Be careful with your carpet so it will last for long!
In an oriental carpet the pile and weft provides the foundation and the pile gives it its durability. In order to give the carpet a long lifetime it is of great importance that it is kept clean; gravel and sand wears the carpet and this is often shown on the fringes and the longer sides.
 
Please also keep in mind that even if a handmade carpet is viewed as a piece of art, it is intended to be used and to be walked on. A handmade carpet is often very durable so that you can use it without any worries. As a matter of fact, a carpet that is normally worn actually can be more beautiful as it ages!
