Each rug’s particular pattern, palette, and weave are uniquely linked with the indigenous culture. Every carpet weaving techniques are specific to an identifiable geographic area or nomadic tribe.

Antique Persian rugs and Persian carpets are an indispensable part of Persian art and culture. Carpet-weaving is unquestionably one of the most distinguished parts of Persian art and culture. The major centers of antique Persian carpet production in Persia were Tabriz (1500-1550), Kashan (1525-1650), Herat (1525-1650), and Kerman (1600-1650).
