What Makes Persian Rugs Different

Most Persian rugs use a distinctive kind of knotting that is different than other varieties of Oriental rugs. It is occasionally called the "Senneh" knot, after a town in Iran highly regarded for its place in rug-making history. Unlike the usual "Turkish" knot, a Persian knot is only wrapped around a single warp (the thick cotton threads that run the length of the pile) and passed behind an adjoining warp. This separates the two ends of the yarn between the two warps: usual knots have both end of the yarn emerge between two warps.

The large majority of Persian rug motifs trace their origins back to the Safavid dynasty, which ruled Iran in the 1500s. These rulers introduced Shia Islam to Persia, became huge patrons of the arts, and most importantly expanded trade between Persia and Europe. Rugs were seen as important diplomatic gifts, and a large number 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, in the past few years the art of rug making has thrived, with more modern and avant-garde designs being produced alongside traditional patterns.
