Good oriental rugs are characterized by several things. The first is the use of natural fibers like wool, silk, and linen. The fibers used in a rug vary, and typically the rug starts out very stiff, because it is designed to endure years of hard use. Oriental rugs benefit from being walked on, as walking softens the fibers, essentially breaking the rug in.
