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.

"So far, so good with the sisal rugs. I purchased three; one round and two runners. I do note some slight fraying on the runners, which are in high traffic areas. I am not sure if those have recently occurred or if they were there from the start; it may be a natural occurrence of sisal. I am careful when vacuuming so as not to overdo it. They look great and I am very pleased overall. The latex backing keeps them in place on my hardwood floors. Time will tell as to whether they wear well."
