What Makes Persian Rugs Different

Most Persian rugs use a unique type of knotting that sets them apart from other varieties of Oriental rugs. It is occasionally known as the "Senneh" knot, after an area in Iran known for its importance 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 carpet) and passed behind an adjacent warp. This divides the two ends of the yarn between the two warps: traditional knots have both end of the yarn come out between two warps.

The large majority of Persian rug designs trace their beginnings back to the Safavid dynasty, which ruled Iran in the 1500s. These sultans introduced Shia Islam to Persia, became huge patrons of the arts, and most importantly increased trade between Persia and Europe. Rugs were often substantial diplomatic gifts, and many of these carpets now are displayed in museums. While mechanization, changes in traditional rural lifestyles, and the Iranian Revolution have threatened the Persian rug industry, recently the practice of rug making has grown, with more modern and avant-garde designs being produced along with traditional patterns.
