Rug & Carpets

Persian Rugs and Carpets are the most precious and magnificent manifestation of art and originality in the Persia plateau from the distant past to the present. Carpets in the Orient, especially among Persians, 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 Persian handwoven carpets is detailed in the historical narratives.
The oldest handwoven Rug in Persia (called Pazirik) dates back to the reign of the Scythians in Iran, in the Achaemenid era. Currently, Tabriz (the city in Iran) encompasses more than 40% of Iranian hand-knotted and machine-made carpets which are called Tabriz carpets and the city has the world's largest carpet gallery, but the Persian carpet also has other origins in this ancient land.

Essential Tips to Buy Persian Carpets and Rugs

Carpets and Rugs are among the most critical items in any original home. A beautiful, well-proportioned, high-quality carpet can add essential meaning to your home's decor, it also attaches 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 tricked by its design, color, texturized pattern (although rug texture can have much basis), or its low price! However, some of these carpets are of poor quality, lasting until the very first wash. They lose their color and elegance in the sun and have a very short lifespan. The best option for covering the floor of your house or the office is to use Iranian handmade carpets, which are of high-end quality and originality, they can also cast up extraordinary elegance to your environment.

Yes, handmade carpets naturally have a higher price because they weave manually with the highest density and elegance. If you cannot afford to own these hand-woven classic carpets, we offer Iranian machine-woven carpets. Even though they lack the art of handmaking and so are not as delicate as handmade carpets, but they are a far better choice (in terms of design) than all the other types of floorings worldwide, So you can get your hand on both high quality and an affordable price at the same time.

Environment Factors in Choosing a Carpet

It is critical to know where you intend to use the carpet. Inside your house? because carpets come in different materials and shapes. Each one is designed for a specific purpose. A doormat or outdoor Rug for example, is not the same rug you put on your bedroom's floor. 

It is preferred to use a black carpet (dark-colored carpet) in high-traffic areas. Furthermore, selecting a rug with anti-allergy fibers and high washability for a child's room is preferred.

Criteria for Environmental Dimensions in Carpet Selection

Another point to be considered is the size of the environment, and the dimensions of the rug you are going to use, and more importantly the rug texture. If the dimension of the rug you intend to provide for a hallway differs from 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 the rug texture. First of all, try to put the furniture and other items you want to put in the room, and then purchase the rug.

Choosing the Right Carpet in Harmony with Your Interior Decoration

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 in that case, you should choose a simple rug with two or three colors. Rugs for children's rooms, kitchens, offices, runner rugs, and so on should all have their design and color scheme.

How to Recognize Original, High-Quality Iranian Rugs?

One can argue that the original, Iranian high-quality carpet is the most well-known, authentic, and very probably the highest quality rug/carpet in the world, with unique characteristics that, in addition to increasing its quality and lifespan, add to its beauty and of course the elegance to your environment.

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

With the beauty and elegance of Iranian rugs, the demand for them is growing by the day. Profiteers bring all kinds of copies, mostly low-quality rugs to the market, raising concerns among those interested in Iranian classic carpets about distinguishing 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 hand-woven rugs. If the design of the rug can be seen from the back, it is very probably a handmade rug.
  • 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

According to their origin, the most important titles of Persian carpets are Tabriz Carpest, Kashan Carpets, Isfahan Carpets, Qum Carpets, Ardakan Carpets, Mashhad Carpets, etc.

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

Each of the titles of the above carpets is divided into different types and branches in terms of design, color, background, density, material, and especially rug texture.

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

Silk or Gol-e Abrisham Carpets

Silk carpets are amongst 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. These carpets are woven from delicate silk yarns, and you should be very careful when washing them. Silk rugs are lint-free and anti-allergic, making them an excellent choice for people with respiratory diseases and families with young children. for more info read the silk rugs article.

Hand-Woven Carpets

As previously stated, Iranian classic carpets come in various styles, one of which is handmade carpets.

These carpets have their own unique story and destiny. Skilled and experienced carpet weavers weave them. This type of carpet has outstanding and eye-catching designs. to inform about hand-knotted carpets and their prices, you can read the woven carpets article.

Gabbeh rugs

Gabbeh is another type of carpet typically woven in a smaller size than regular carpets but with thicker and larger knots. 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 views.

Kilim

Kilim is a traditional and handmade carpet made of natural sheep wool lint-free and woven by rural women weavers, giving the environment a sense of life. Each city in Iran has its kilim with different designs, colors, and patterns. for more information about kilim and its prices, visit the kilim page.

Runner rug

Some rugs have small widths and long lengths, making them ideal for corridors, stairs, and other narrow spaces. These rugs, come in a variety of designs and patterns just like all the other rugs and are extremely practical. Entrances, corridors, and balconies are not the only places where you can use runner rugs to make the space more pleasant and beautiful. 

The house foyer, in particular, is one of the most important parts of the house, 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 kids and live in a house with stairs, it is best to cover the stairs with a runner rug.
