What is a Persian Rug?

Posted on

Persian rugs have been popular for centuries and are famous for their elaborate designs and incredible colours. Traditional Persian rugs are hand-knotted in Iran (modern-day Persia) from wool, cotton or silk, and will often feature design imperfections because they are made using wooden looms. These imperfections add to the value of the rug, and the quality is such that you can expect an authentic hand-knotted Persian rug to last a lifetime.

As you can imagine, a rug that lasts a lifetime doesn't come cheap, so you need to think of purchasing a genuine hand-made Persian Rug in the same way you would a piece of art. If you're not ready to make that investment just yet, the good news is that you can still purchase a high-quality rug with a Persian look without the price tag.

Here's what you need to know about machine-made Persian rugs.

Benefits of Power-Loomed Persian Rugs

If you don't have thousands of dollars to invest in a hand knotted Persian rug from Iran right now but you love their classic look, a machine-made Persian rug is an excellent option. Not only are machine-made rugs much easier to clean, but the colours are equally as vibrant and the fibres very durable.
