Silk Persian Rugs
Iran or Persia has one of the richest art heritages in world history and encompasses many disciplines including architecture, painting, pottery, calligraphy and last but not the least its rich rug weaving tradition. The carpets woven in Iran are often named after the city or the region where they come from, such as Hamadan rugs, Mashad rugs, Kerman, Qum, Heriz, Tabriz, Isfahan, Kashan rugs and many more. These wide ranges of weaving styles and designs encapsulate geographic, historical, and cultural differences across the multitude of Iranian provinces.
For example, Qum rugs of Iran are one of the most famous silk rugs in the world. They are renowned for their superior quality of weave, jewel tone vibrant colors as well as their intricate designs inspired by flora and fauna of the region.
