    What are Persian rugs?

    When asked what are Persian rugs, you need to distinguish a time period.

    In a general sense, a Persian rug mostly refers to the Persian Empire. This empire lasted two centuries and had a reputation for the most luxurious carpet making in history.

    The Persian Empire (Iran) has included countries such as Turkey, Azerbaijan, Syria, Iraq, Turkmenistan, Georgia, Afghanistan, and Pakistan as early as 550BC. During that time it also included parts of Egypt, Libya, India, Greece and Bulgaria.

    At the height of the Persian Empire it include over 8 million kilometers of countries.

    Even in 1272 Marco Polo praised the “beautiful rugs” that were made in an area encompassed by what we often refer to as Ancient Persia. Carpet weaving is an art form which includes hand woven carpets using indigenous natural dyes and patterns which may have been woven for generations.
