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 a 9x12 Indus Jute & Wool rug.It has been in my room for about 3 weeks and I absolutely love it. It is the perfect neutral rug...off white and golden diamond pattern. It is a stretchy rug but with a rug pad it's perfect. I have two big dogs and haven't noticed any pulls from their nails. It's super easy to vacuum which I have to do often. As for the feel underfoot, it's firm but comfortable barefoot. As for customer service, I couldn't be happier. I emailed questions and Natural Area Rugs responded quickly and they were so friendly. I would definitely recommend you...as a matter of fact I already have! Thank you so much!"
