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:

"Not the first time I have ordered large seagrass rugs from Natural Area Rugs and probably won't be the last. If these lovely natural rugs fit your lifestyle these are the way to go... and they fit every type of furniture design."

"I am really pleased with my new sisal stair treads. They are beautiful, sturdy, and were a good price. I won't hesitate to shop at Natural Area Rugs again."

S. Winter Puyallup, WA, Aug. 2014

"The rug I ordered looked very much like it did on the website. It is a great color and as stated, soft on the feet (for a jute rug). The rug arrived a few days after the order was placed. It was very carefully wrapped and they suggested the rug be carefully unwrapped in case you planned on returning the purchase. All in all, this was one of the better web sights as far as presentation and customer service. Thank you Natural Area Rugs!"

"We are enjoying the stair treads from Natural Area Rugs. Not only are they nice looking, they are of good quality. We were expecting to have to use the tape, but were pleasantly surprised that the treads stay in place (for the most part - when there is heavy traffic, they need some adjustment) without having to make them permanent. This will make cleaning the hardwoods much easier, as well as protect them from our dogs who scuff up the floorboards. We also purchased matching landing mats."
