Rug & Carpets

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

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

Important tips to buy Persian carpets and rugs

Carpets and rugs are among the most important items in any original home. A high-quality, beautiful, and well-proportioned carpet, in addition to being necessary for every home, adds meaning to your home's decor and adds spirit, color, and energy to the environment. However, before purchasing a rug, you should keep the following points in mind.

Iranian Carpet quality

The first point to consider when selecting a carpet is its quality. When purchasing a rug, you should not be fooled by its design, color, texturized pattern, or low price! However, some of these carpets are of poor quality, lasting only until the first wash, easily losing their color and elegance in the sun, and having a very short lifespan. The best option for covering the floor in your home or office is to use Iranian handmade carpets, which have a very high quality and originality and add a special elegance to your environment. The handmade carpet naturally has a higher price because it is woven by the weaver and manually with high density and elegance. If you cannot afford Iranian hand-made carpets, we offer Iranian machine-woven carpets, which, while lacking the art of hand-making and not as delicate as hand-made carpets, are a far better product in terms of design than all other types of carpets around the world, with high quality and an affordable price.

Type of environment factor in choosing a carpet

It is critical to know where you intend to use the carpet in your home, because carpets come in a variety of materials and shapes, and each is designed for a specific purpose. A doormat or outdoor rug, for example, is not the same as a rug for your bedroom. It is preferable to use a dark-colored carpet in high-traffic areas. Furthermore, for a child's room, it is preferable to select a rug with anti-allergy fibers and high washability.

Criteria for environmental dimensions in carpet selection

Another point to consider is the size of the environment and what dimensions of carpet are appropriate for it. If the dimensions of the rug you intend to provide for a hallway differ from those of the living room rugs. you cannot use a narrow and long rug in front of your sofa. A 6-square-meter rug is also insufficient for a 20-meter-long room. In addition, keep in mind that the rug should be chosen so that it does not get tangled up in the room's furniture and decorations. because the weight of heavy objects may damage it. First, try to put the furniture and other items you want to put in the room, and then purchase the rug.

Consider Type of Interior decoration in choosing the right carpet

You should select a rug that complements your decor. Classic rugs with floral designs and dense patterns and colors are not appropriate for office environments or homes decorated in a modern style, but a simple rug with two or three colors should be chosen. Rugs for children's rooms, kitchens, offices, runner rugs, and so on should all have their design and color scheme.

How to recognize original and high-quality Iranian rugs?

One could argue that the original and high-quality Iranian rug is the most well-known, original, and high-quality rug in the world, with unique characteristics that, in addition to increasing its quality and lifespan, add to its beauty and elegance to your environment.

Iranian rugs can range in price from a few hundred dollars to more than a million dollars, depending on the quality, age, dimensions, type, and design!

Given the beauty and elegance of Iranian rugs, the demand for them is growing by the day. Profiteers bring all kinds of copies and low-quality rugs to the market, raising concerns among those interested in excellent Iranian rugs about how to distinguish original and high-quality rugs from low-quality ones.

Here are some methods for determining the authenticity of Iranian rugs:

  • Each original rug has a label on the back that includes the name of the country of manufacture. Iran is the only country that manufactures Iranian rugs! Therefore, rugs made in neighboring countries such as Turkey, Pakistan, India, the Caucasus, and Iraq are not authentic and high-quality Iranian rugs.
  • Checking the back of the carpet is one method for identifying Iranian handmade rugs. If the design of the rug can be seen from the back, it is a handmade rug.

original and high quality rug and carpet authentication

  • Put your hand on a machine-made rug to test its quality based on its yarns. If your hand slides easily and without adhering to the machine carpet, it is of high quality. It is also worth noting that high-quality machine carpet yarns do not smell like plastic or petroleum. Aside from being of higher quality, such rugs are also more washable and resistant to sunlight, oils, and chemicals.

Different kinds of Iranian carpets

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).

Each of the titles of the above carpets is 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.

In what follows next, some of the best and most distinctive Iranian carpets are presented, emphasizing their strengths and distinctions from other carpets from around the world.

Silk carpet or Gol-e Abrisham

Silk carpets are among the most precious carpets, and having one in the home of any Iranian signifies a high social class; therefore, they require special maintenance and care. This carpet is woven from delicate silk yarns, and you should be very careful when washing it. For example, use natural detergents, wash the carpet as soon as stains and dirt appear, and do not place heavy objects on it. Silk rugs are lint-free and anti-allergic, making them an excellent choice for people with respiratory diseases and families with young children. Silk carpets are very beautiful and mesmerizing because of the variety of colors and the shadow and glossy patterns in their texture. This type of carpet is made both by machine and by hand, with the latter having a higher value.

Handmade carpet

As previously stated, Iranian carpets come in a variety of styles, one of which is handmade carpets.

These carpets each have their own unique story and destiny, and they are woven by skilled and experienced carpet weavers. Therefore, Iranian handmade carpets can be considered a work of art that embodies the culture and customs of this country. This type of carpet has very beautiful and eye-catching designs, each of which has its names, such as Shah Abbasi design, arabesque design, overall flower design, paisley design, adapted design, Vagireh design (Bandi), tree design, Turkmen design (Bukhara), hunting design, frame design (Kheshti), Gol-e farang design, vase design, prayer-Nich design, fish design, Straipped design, geometric design, and integrated design.

Gabbeh

Gabbeh is another type of carpet that is typically woven in a smaller size than machine-made carpets but with thicker and larger knots. Gabbeh weaving has been popular among Iran's nomads since antiquity, and nomadic women wove it by hand on horizontal looms. The best and most desirable Gabbeh is made from spring wool that has been spun by hand and dyed naturally with plant dyes. Gabbeh designs are subjective designs, arising from the weaver's creativity and experience, and are typically images of nature or geometric images. Gabbeh is commonly found in Fars Province and among the Qashqai tribe, but it is now produced in other cities as well. This carpet is typically woven with a light background color and various patterns such as lion, medallion-corner, Kheshti, star, animal patterns, and so on.

Kilim

Kilim is a traditional and handmade carpet made of natural sheep wool that is lint-free and woven by rural women weavers, giving the environment a sense of life. Each city in Iran has its own kilim with different designs, colors, and patterns. The majority of these carpets are embellished with geometric patterns, broken lines, and, on occasion, animal and flower patterns. Kilims are also woven in a variety of styles, including Shahsavan tribe kilim, Qashqai kilim, Harsin kilim, Baluch Kilim, Khamseh kilim, Saneh kilim, Afshar kilim, Zarand kilim, Turkmen kilim, and Mazandaran kilim.

Runner rug

Some rugs have a small width and a long length, making them ideal for corridors, stairs, and other narrow spaces. These rugs, like other rugs, come in a variety of designs and patterns and are extremely practical. Entrances, corridors, and balconies are just a few of the places where runner rugs can be used to make a space more pleasant and beautiful. The entrance of the house, in particular, is one of the most important parts because it forms the first image in the minds of the guests as soon as they enter, so it is preferable to convey a positive feeling to them. In addition, if you have a young child and live in a house with stairs, it is best to cover the stairs with a runner rug.

Last word

Because of the climatic variation of the Iranian plateau and the variety of cultures and subcultures, Persian carpets and rugs have undergone many changes and they attracted eyes from around the world relying on the arts and tastes of weavers and craftsmen of this profession.

Undoubtedly, speaking about the importance of the rug and carpet from an aesthetics perspective or its application as a dynamic element containing the design and color in the living environment is beyond the scope of this essay.

However, given that all nations with different cultures need to have carpets and floor coverings in their homes and places like a beautiful rug, it becomes clear that having the desired carpet at home will tranquilize and enhance the artistic taste in a variety of oriental and western decorations so that many people even put their home furnishings in harmony with their carpet.
