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:

"Extremely satisfied with this company. Excellent price. Quality of merchandise was good although not "excellent", but for the price, I'll take it! And we didn't have to wait forever to get them! Quick & inexpensive and really pretty! (They were stair tread carpets, beautiful & plush, they just were not all exactly the same size; 1/4"-3/8" difference. We opted to align them in size order so it's not that noticeable.) I would DEFINITELY use Natural Area Rugs again!"

"I received the rug quickly and it was well packaged. Its' really soft with lots of texture. I like the fact that real wool is incorporated in it. The color is maybe a little more subtle than on the photo."
