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.

"I purchased the Dresden rug for my master bedroom and I absolutely love it! I wanted something beautiful yet durable because of our pets and this is it! Will definitely be purchasing more rugs in the future!"

"This was our second purchase from Natural Area Rugs. We just lost an 8x10 wool rug in a recent flood and decided a jute rug would be a nice natural replacement in style and price. It was a good choice for us."

I had purchases, exchanges, returns, etc. and it all ran smoothly due to their fair customer policy and service. The quality of their products is excellent and the prices are wonderful. Will definitely buy from them again and recommend them to others!"

R. Wessels Bel Air, MD, Jan. 2015

"I have purchased 2 custom sisal rugs from Natural Area Rugs. The order process is very easy, and the quality of the product is great. Promised delivery time was just right on the first rug, a little late on the second rug (but not extreme). Natural Area Rugs is definitely my "go to" vendor for natural fiber rugs!"
