Since 5.500 BC Persian people have been handcrafting Persian rugs. This is an ancient art that has been passed down from generation to generation. It is still employing people today. During the period of colonization in the mid 1800’s exporting of the Persian rugs began.
Persian rugs became known throughout the rest of the world. Before this time the Persian rugs were used by the tribes that created them and no one else. Each tribe had certain colors and designs that they used to differentiate themselves from each other.
It's a great way to present your rooms. Colorful and dynamic in design are the oriental rugs that really bring on the stunning look in your room.
Machine made rugs are inexpensive and can be quite nice these days, however nothing compares to the hand-knotted oriental rugs. It's a true art form and a talent handed down from generation to generation. Harder to find? Yes, but worth the effort.
