Types of Persian Rugs / Oriental Rugs.

Persian rugs have always been the epitome of luxury, history, and artistry. Let's journey through time and understand the beauty and legacy of these magnificent floor adornments.

Picture the era between 3000 BC and 1200 BC. It's during this period that the awe-inspiring craft of rug weaving emerged. The annals of history narrate that the saga of Persian rugs began with the ancient Greeks. The great poet Homer, who penned the ‘Iliad’ around 850BC, described alluring territories replete with “resplendent carpets”. This era is iconic as the Bronze Age.

With such a grand lineage, the styles of Middle Eastern rugs have witnessed an astounding metamorphosis. Originating as essential items to safeguard mountain dwellers and wandering tribes from the cold gusts of wind, these rugs transitioned into symbols of affluence. They captivated the imagination of Persian monarchs, later finding their way into grand European castles and the revered corridors of the US White House.

From functional to regal, these rugs certainly tell a story of ages.
