Rug and Carpet on Cyrus Crafts

Rug and Iranian carpet is the most precious and magnificent manifestation of art and originality in the Iranian plateau from distant past to present.

Carpets in the Orient, especially among Iranians, are not merely a floor covering, but an artistic compilation of taste and an instrument to pour the spirit of art, pattern and color of life into homes.

The popularity of the art of Persian hand-woven carpets is detailed in the historical narratives of such great historians as Xenophon and Herodotus, and the oldest hand-woven carpet in Iran (called Pazirik) dates back to the reign of the Scythians in Iran, in the Achaemenid era. Persian carpet was born at the same time as the Aryan sedentism, spreading animal husbandry and agriculture, and gaining knowledge about the use of animal wool, such as goats and cotton bones, and, after a period of historical ups and downs, it is now one of the best and most sophisticated souvenirs and artistic gifts of the Orient.

With the introduction of Islam to the ancient land of Iran, Islamic designs (arabesque), mainly medallion as well as semicircular and quadrant curves, were incorporated into the carpets and added color and glaze to the Persian carpets and rugs, in a manner that the variety of these motifs can be realized along with the emergence of the folkloric culture of the various ethnic groups of Iran, such as the Azeri-speaking people (Tabriz carpet), the people of the desert regions (Kashan carpet, Qum carpet, Kerman carpet, Na’in carpet) and many other regions, and the quality promotion of this exquisite product.

Currently, East Azarbaijan Province in Iran encompasses more than 40% of Iranian hand-knotted and machine-knotted carpets called Tabriz carpets, but Persian carpet has also other origins in this ancient land.

The most important titles of Persian carpets according to their origin are Tabriz Carpet, Kashan Carpet, Isfahan Carpet, Qum Carpet, Ardakan Carpet, Mashhad Carpet, etc.

Among the other cities producing Persian carpets are Turkmen Sahra, Khorasan (producing exquisite carpets of the Mood in Khorasan, which are mainly concentrated in the cities of Birjand, Neyshabur and Sabzevar), Mashhad, Zanjan, Isfahan, Kerman, Kashan, Sistan and Baluchestan and Shiraz).

Obviously each of the titles of the above carpets are divided into different types and branches in terms of design, color, background, texture, density, material, etc.

Also, famous designs of Persian rug and carpet of Iran include Shah Abbasi carpets, carpets with arabesque designs, carpets with designs containing historical and Islamic buildings, adapted patterns (containing the culture of neighbors and other areas of the world that are beautifully combined by Iranian artists' perception or taste), overall flower design (introducing various flowers and plants, each entailing a specific symbol), the Bandi carpet (with diamond, arabesque, medallion, and Minakhani motifs, etc.), nomadic pattern carpet and, finally, a compilation design that combines two or more designs.
