About the piece

The Persian carpet is an essential part of Persian art and culture. Carpet-weaving is undoubtedly one of the most distinguished manifestations of Persian culture and art and dates back to ancient Persia. Iran is also the world’s largest producer and exporter of handmade carpets, producing three-quarters of the world’s total output. The art of carpet weaving existed in Iran in ancient times, according to evidence such as the 2500-year-old Pazyryk carpet, dating back to 500 B.C., during the Achaemenid period. Wool is the most common material for carpets but cotton is frequently used for the foundation of city and workshop carpets. There IS a wide variety of types of wool used for weaving.
