Persian carpet is part of Iranian culture
Iranian carpet :
The oldest PERSIAN handwoven carpet in the world was discovered by Rudenko ,the Russian archaeologist , in 1949 at the perisarc reign and called perisarc carpet.
At 1953, Rudenko published a book and explained in details about this carpet and clearly, he called perisarc carpet the oldest carpet in all over the world
“It is hard to specify that this carpet belongs to Medians territory or Parthian’s, but it belongs to Fourth or beginning fifth century B.C. Travel to iran.
The material :
Hand woven Persian carpets are typically made of wool, silk, or a wool-silk blend.
The 100% pure silk rugs are quite fine and have a shiny finish. Wool, on the other hand, is the most commonly used material.
The quality depends on the breed of sheep, the climate, pasturage, and time of shearing.
Don’t mistake these two quality flame-resistant materials for the synthetic fibers of machine-made carpets, which are highly flammable and tend to give off lint.
The color :
Traditional Persian carpets are made from natural dyes, so you want to look for colors that seem to come from nature: cochineal insects for reds, the indigo plant for blues, and pomegranate rind for shades of yellow.
Synthetic dyes tend to penetrate the fiber evenly, whereas natural dyes will coat the surface.
Bend the carpet to isolate a few threads, and if you notice a subtle unevenness, then you know you’re dealing with natural colors.
Now that you know the three most important factors to look for as far as the rug itself, there are a few other points to consider to help you narrow down your choice even further.
Know the difference between types
Not all Persian carpets are created equal, and it’s not unusual for novices to mistake a gelim (a flat woven carpet) or a gabbeh (a pile rug commonly woven by nomads) for a “traditional” Persian carpet just because it’s from Iran.
These varieties are beautiful in their own right, but be sure you know the difference so that you don’t invest in the wrong one.
