The Persian carpet is an integral part of Persian art and culture. Carpet weaving is undoubtedly one of the most distinguished manifestations of Persian culture and are which dates back to ancient Persia. The Persian carpet is synonymous with perfection. The exquisitely intricate patterns and natural dyes have rendered it the most sought-after hand-made weave in the world with acknowledgment of superiority in every respect.
Tribal Carpets are small in size, woven in a very short period of 3 or 4 months, and in the form of a rug and runner. The tribal looms are made horizontally, easy to dismantle, and pack to be loaded on horses, camels, and other load-carrying animals, with speed and ease.
The rugs are thick and woven in natural, sharp, and bright colors. The knots are generally Ghiordes and sometimes Senneh. The vast majority of Persian Carpets are made in the rural and urban centers where looms are positioned permanently. The carpets woven in the village workshops are generally thick and those woven in the urban centers are very fine.
