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 are a wide variety in types of wool used for weaving.

Rugs from Mahal often have the famous all-over pattern called Herati design. Other Mahal rugs show clear Kurdish and Turkish tribal rug influences.
