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 couldn't have been happier with the whole experience of buying this rug from Natural Area Rugs. It was the perfect color/size and true to the internet picture and even better in person. It was so reasonably priced that I was a little skeptical of the quality, but when it arrived I was pleasantly surprised how nice it was! Highly recommended. Timely and easy shipment right to the door."
