The few remaining ancient Persian carpets are found in museums and private collections around the world, and date back to the oldest discovered Pazyryk Rug from 500 a. d. The two Ardabil Carpets, located in the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, are also considered among the worlds oldest. Copied endlessly until today, Persian inspired rugs feature multiple borders, classic icon images, overall busy designs and rich colors that combine to create complex, engaging and decorative pieces. The Ancient Oriental Rug combines meticulously detailed design elements with subtle color hints of golds, beiges with highlights of reds and light blue--sure to match most any interior design color scheme.
Since MouseRugs are manufactured with the performance engineered Lextra flock printing technology they are highly abrasion resistant. The best cleaning techniques are those that get down between the fibers to completely dislodge and wash away any accumulated debris. We have discovered that a common high pressure wand (available at neighborhood car washes to wash cars and especially floor mats) is the most effective cleaning method. Simply: mount the MouseRug with floor mat clips or place flat securely on the (concrete) ground run the SOAP or WASH cycle with the high pressure wand to drive soap thoroughly into the MouseRug fibers, working it back and forth to agitate and loosen the dirt run through the RINSE cycle, again working the wand back and forth to drive away all dirt particles shake water out of MouseRug as much as possible and lay on flat surface with fibers up to air dry - may lay on a towel, paper or cloth, to absorb some of the water The MouseRug's yarn-dyed nylon fibers will look like new after this process.
Approximate Finished Size: 7.125" x 10.25" (including fringe) and .15748" thick. MouseRugs are elegant and functional mouse pads that are designed to look and feel like some of the world's most famous rugs. MouseRug surfaces are made with world-patented Lextra® yarn-dyed nylon fiber coating process and they are printed without ink. The quality may be compared to high-wear carpeting construction, although on a much finer scale. The fibers are .75 millimeters long (more than 7 million on each MouseRug). Enjoy the lovely, soft feel and precise mouse tracking (optical OR ball). Fibers are permanently locked into base adhesives - designs for truck floormats are made with the same process. The natural rubber base material is made in the U.S.A. from rubber that comes from trees in southeast Asia. Fringed ends of the MouseRugs are custom produced at a textile mill in the Carolinas - the same company making fringe for well-known makers full size rugs. Computer mice that use Darkfield scanning technology have difficulty "reading" any irregular, or textile-like surface. They are designed and intended for use on super-smooth surfaces like glass or desks and do not perform well on MouseRugs.
