Origins of Persian Rugs

 

Following the development of Persian rugs through the centuries is like following a rabbit trail back to its hole. Persian rugs have a deep story throughout history originating in Persia (Iran). Iran is considered to be the oldest empire in the Middle East and is attributed as being the birth place of the oriental rug. Iran (Persia) was the crossroads of the Western and Eastern world, seeing a lot of traffic between the two worlds. Persian rugs export began around the 16th Century and spread quickly throughout the known world. In the middle of the 19th Century many first-world Western countries including the United States, the UK and Germany all starting buying Persian rugs from Iran. Each Persian rug's distinct design, pattern and weave are all a reflection of a specific period of time and small, indigenous village throughout Persia. Many of the styles were named after the small tribes and are still referred to that to this day.

Customer TESTIMONIALS:

"Beautiful area rug at a phenomenal price. Very please with the service, product descriptions and everything met my expectation. Thanks Natural Area Rugs!"

C. Stewart Carlsbad, CA, Sep. 2014

"Ordered the Fiore Platinum 20" x 36" anti-fatigue mats for my kitchen. Easy-order web site. Best prices/discounts I could find on the internet. Excellent customer service in response to my separate, post-ordering e-mail. Quick delivery. After several months, I noticed a small tear in the fabric covering on one of the mats. The tear attracts dirt along its 2 (1") edges but, after several months of daily use, the fabric hasn't lifted up nor has the tear increased in size. An excellent product and a godsend with my tile floors. Will use naturalarearugs.com for all of my future floor covering needs."

"Just had some hardwood floors installed and needed a rug, my very first rug as well. Researched so very long and then came up with this company. I wanted something durable and long lasting and found what I wanted at Natural Area Rugs. Arrived without a hitch and was packaged very well, could not wait to open it when it arrived. Love this rug and it is made very well. Need some other rugs for a few more rooms and will look at this company again."
