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:

"I purchased the Galaxy Jute rug in the 8X10 size. I already had a thin rug pad on hand, so I used it, but I think you could probably get away without one. The rug was on sale, the shipping was free, PLUS I got a discount for being a first-time customer. It doesn't get any better than that, folks. To top it off, I LOVE the rug and the way it looks against my old oak floors. It lied flat immediately, has no funny smell (as some rugs do) is a perfect neutral shade and is quite heavy. I will look to Natural Area Rugs the next time I'm in the market for a floor covering. The shipping was quick, and the packaging very carefully done. Thank you for an easy and wonderful shopping experience."
