Traditional Rugs

The tradition of rug weaving in Iran started more than 2,500 years ago. Since that time traditional Persian rugs are among Persia’s most valuable works of art. The Persian carpet reached its zenith during the reign of Shah Abbas (1588-1629) who fostered commerce and crafts. Shah Abbas moved the capital of Persia to Isfahan, which became one of the most glorious cities of Persia, and he established rug workshops where skilled designers and craftsmen set to work to create splendid specimens.

The skill and craft of rug weaving in Persia has been passed down from generation to generation for many centuries in Iran. The skill and craft of ancient Persians and encouragement of various kings of Persia made rug weaving into a glorious tradition of Persia. Throughout the past centuries to the present, Persian rugs have earned the most respect, more than any other art or artifacts in the region. Old and antique Persian rugs are a valuable treasure: more than 2,500 antique Persian rugs are displayed in the world’s most admired museums.
