Persian Rug Dealer
In Iran, the demand for their own locally produced rugs outweighs the supply greatly. Most households in Iran have at least one rug with the majority of homes having many rugs displayed throughout their homes.
A Persian rug is truly like gold and fluctuates with the market, either increasing in value or decreasing (although the latter is seldom the case).
Ones societal status is determined by the number of rugs a home in Iran has, and as part of the wedding ceremony, a “rug dowry” is usually agreed upon before a wedding is ever to take place. Newlywedded Iranian couples bring at least one rug into their new home.
