2x3 Rugs

2x3 Rugs are some of the most versatile sizes around, and we have a great selection of pieces to fit any style. 

How big is a 2x3 Rug? 

Like the name implies, these rugs are generally 2 feet by 3 feet, give or take, being that we only carry handmade rugs, so sizing can fluctuate a few to several inches in either direction. 

What are 2x3 Rugs for?

2x3 Rugs are some of the most versatile for their uses among all the sizes we place in client's homes. They make surprisingly lovely kitchen rugs in front of sinks or between a central island counter space. We have seen them add a fun bit of color to vanities and powder rooms, and even a little bit of unexpected color in a closet or nook of a room. 2x3 rugs are also a great opportunity to place a bit of comfort under a desk or beside a bed. 

2x3 rugs in the kitchen?

Yes, as odd as that might sound smaller rugs like 2x3's are great kitchen rugs. The smaller size and handwoven wool rugs that we specialize in responds very well to soaking and washing with a mild soap in a bathtub or laundry room basin. Just as long as they dry quickly, such as being hung to dry on a warmer summer day. We also can offer professional services if that is something that you might not want to trouble yourself with. 

In short, 2x3 handmade rugs are a smart choice to add a bit of fun flair to a space needing a bit of texture and color.

3x5 Rugs

3x5 Rugs are a great option for spaces that are not too big, yet also not too small. We have a large selection, in several sizes and styles to fit most budgets. 

How big are 3x5 Rugs?

Being that all our rugs are handmade, some variances do exist. But the general size grouping we classify these rugs as in 3 feet by 5 feet. 

What are 3x5 Rugs for?

3x5 Rugs are very versatile in their uses. We have seen clients place them in entryways as a way to define an entry space, or on the landing between flights of stairs. They also are a great size to liven up a kitchen or breakfast nook with a little color. Being that many of our rugs are all wool, 3x5 Rugs can be a great unique option for spaces that experience more use than most, due to the nature of hand knotted wool rugs to handle washing also well. 

So fear not, a well made rug can handle dirt and daily use, often better than a cheaply made disposable textile, and last many more years with a little care.

Gabbeh Rugs

Christiane Millinger Handmade Rugs has the finest collection of one-of-kind Gabbeh rugs and carpets you will find anywhere. These rugs are made using methods dating back to antiquity, and the entirely by hand process produces a wool that is peerless in its durability, softness, and resiliency to staining. The palette of colors that the semi-nomadic weavers can achieve using only dyes sourced from natural sources like indigo, madder root, pomegranate and onion skins, is truly amazing. The wool retains high amounts of the natural lanolin which makes a yarn that not only resists staining and soiling, but also produces an environment that discourages the growth of dust mites. Truly some of the most holistic textiles you can chose for your home.

Oushak Rugs

Oushak Rugs have burst upon the interior design scene, but what makes them different from other traditional style carpets?

Oushaks, or sometimes spelled Ushak, rugs have become a very popular choice within interior design for area rugs. But often, when clients are looking for this style carpet that they see in glossy home decor magazines they may not know what sets them apart from their colorful and more energetic cousins in the larger rug world. 

What are Oushak rugs?

Oushaks are hand-knotted rugs with origins in Western Turkey. Often Oushaks are typically in a softer palette of colors ranging from beige and grays and pastel tones. Oushaks often also feature a more open central area of beige and ivory tones when compared with the dense filigree and lattice type looks seen in Persian and other Turkish style area rugs. These factors, in combination with a looser chunkier knot often with Angora mixed in the wool, results in a casual elegance that is the signature of Oushak carpets. Oushaks also often feature an intentional fade or weathered look that is a perfect marriage with contemporary design trends that favor black, white and gray scale furnishings, elements, and surfaces. 

Where do Oushak rugs come from?

As mentioned earlier, Oushak rugs originate in the Western Turkish city of Uşak. This area has been a producer of fine carpets and area rugs, and many fine examples seen in Renaissance artworks have been attributed to the region. Oushaks enjoyed resurgences in the 17th and 19th Centuries, much like the they are again now in the 21st. We are proud to work with Anadol Rugs, who have an exclusive location patent for rugs still being produced in the city of Uşak. So much like true champagne coming from the namesake region in France, many of our Oushaks are still made the same way they have been for hundreds of years.

Tribal Rugs

Get back to the roots of Rug and Textile-making with our curated Tribal Collection.

Tribal rugs are a big favorite of ours at Christiane Millinger Handmade Rugs. Christiane enjoys sourcing rare and unusual examples of this disappearing craft. We also find many antiques and vintage pieces that we usually only feature in our showroom, but do post here from time to time. 

We also specialize in Gabbeh tribal rugs from Southern Iran and feature a selection unrivaled for originality and uniqueness.

We up-cycle many of the vintage tribal bag faces that we find into pillows, made by local artisans and craftspeople, producing wonderful, one-of-a-kind accent pieces. These are a great way to bring rich color and a bit of history into any living space. 

Christiane worked for noted expert James Opie prior to venturing into her own business as a purveyor of fine rugs and carpets and has been able to continue his appreciation and study of tribal rugs and various other textiles.

Tribal Rugs

One-of-a-kind handcrafted Tribal rugs selected by Christiane herself. From whimsical Gabbehs and Kilims, to precision Soumaks, to the occasional antique and vintage pieces. Tribal rugs offer an insight into a bygone era of hand-knotted craft. Often as important as the clothes some of these people made, the imagery in the utilitarian textiles that were part of their daily lives can show political change, shifting tribal affiliations and cooperation, and yet can be as individual as the people, most often women, that made them.
