What is a Persian Carpet?
Persian carpets can transform a space and give it a look of luxury. Persian carpets are also known as Oriental rugs and are made in Iran.
Traditionally, Persian carpets or Persian rugs were handwoven by the nomadic tribes that roam across the region of classical Persia. This tradition is embedded into Iran’s culture and art.
They are made from wool, silk, cotton, or a wool-silk blend. The finer the material, such as silk and the longer it will take to weave a Persian rug. Today it’s much more common to find synthetic fibers such as nylon, polyester, or polypropylene in use that will copy the styling of Persian carpets, however an authentic Persian carpets will always utilize natural materials.
