Area Rugs: Persian Rugs

For many people the term "Persian rug" is synonymous with oriental rugs in general. Certainly the variety of Persian rugs, from the sophisticated larger versions made by master weavers to the smaller but no less charming nomadic Persian rugs, is extraordinary. The colorings of Persian rugs are invariably rich and deep, usually with a ground of crimson backing symbolic, figurative or naturalistic motifs. Persian rugs vary in design and color depending on what region they come from. Saruks, Hamodans, Kashans, and Kirmans, all named for the towns they come from. The most usual material for Persian carpets and rugs was, and is, wool, but particularly fine silk Persian rugs are now much sought after. In fact, there is an old Persian saying: "The richer the man the thinner the carpet", which refers to the superb quality of the finest silk Persian rugs.

The main advantage with Persian rugs is that the older they get the better they look. Persian rugs are not deemed to be their best for some 30 to 40 years.
