Carpet-making in the country now called Iran has a history and reputation so great, it has been described as an "intangible part of cultural heritage" by the United Nations. There are records of ancient Greek historians and writers describing Persian rugs as luxury goods in famous texts such as Homer's Odyssey. Archaeologists have unearthed Persian rugs at dig sites that were produced in the 5th century B.C., which notably show some of the traditional details of Persian rugs that you can enjoy today. Details like complicated designs, bright colors, and deep pile make Persian rugs different than other types of Oriental carpets. Iran's rich history--its place as a cradle of world civilization, role in world trade during the Middle Ages, and the influence of multiple religious traditions such as Islam and Zoroastrianism--have all worked together to make Persian rugs some of the most desirable and intriguing carpets in the world.

What Makes Persian Rugs Different

Most Persian rugs use a notable kind of knotting that sets them apart from other types of Oriental rugs. It is occasionally called the "Senneh" knot, after an area in Iran renowned for its place in rug-making history. As opposed to the usual "Turkish" knot, a Persian knot is only wrapped around a single warp (the thick cotton threads that run the length of the rug) and passed behind an adjoining warp. This divides the two ends of the yarn between the two warps: traditional knots have both end of the yarn emerge between two warps.

The large majority of Persian rug designs trace their origins back to the Safavid dynasty, which controlled Iran in the 1500s. These sultans brought Shia Islam to Persia, became massive backers of the arts, and crucially increased trade between Persia and Europe. Rugs were often major diplomatic gifts, and many of these carpets now are on display in museums. While mechanization, changes in traditional rural lifestyles, and the Iranian Revolution have threatened the Persian rug industry, recently the art of rug making has thrived, with more modern and avant-garde designs being made alongside traditional patterns.
