Rugs were first made in the ancient Persia most probably during the Bronze Age. Various factors led to the beginning of rug making. They were made exclusively for domestic use but their unmatched craftsmanship took their fame far and wide and rugs began to be made in large numbers for court and also for export. The technique, patterns and embroidery of such carpets were elaborate, complex and they depicted symbols based on the geography and culture of the manufacturing territories although sometimes more than one pattern can be found in a single carpet. The rugs were hand woven and it took few months to several years to finish a single rug. Antique Persian rugs are unparalleled in their style, richness, absolute brilliance of artistry and are pure perfection. The oldest surviving carpet is the Pazyryk carpet of the 5th century B.C.

Modern tradition

The rich history of rug making has been ably maintained by the workers. These days’ rugs are both hand woven and machine made. There has been no concession on the quality, method of manufacture and designs. Wool has always been the most favorite material whereas cotton and silk are also used for rug making. Iran (ancient Persia) is now the biggest exporter of Persian Rugs UK around the world.

How Persian Rugs Are Made?

All Oriental rug weavers simply use similar methods and materials, they all require long hours of work. There are simply two kinds of weaving or you can say two kinds of knots.

Persian carpets are made by Persian Senneh knot which is a single knot. It is made by passing the woolen strand under one warp, then over and around the next.

This knot can be made to face to the left or right so that the lie of the pile can be in either direction.

So what? The single strand of the Persian Senneh knot allows for more flowing outlines and apparently finer work simply because these knots occupy less space.
