Here is our guide for buying Persian rugs:
Persian rugs are produced in Iran, the country that makes about 75 percent of the world’s hand-woven rugs. A Persian rug is distinct from rugs made in other countries based on the knot used in the rug’s construction. Larger Persian rugs are referred to as Q-li or Farsh while rugs that are less than 6 feet by 4 feet are called Qa-licheh.
Shape and Design:
Persian rugs usually have a rectangular shape, but round ones are also available. You will see Persian rugs in many different colors, and they boast a wide array of nice-looking patterns and designs. Many of the designs you will notice on Persian rugs have been handed down from generation to generation. There are four primary patterns that are used to make Persian rugs, including an allover pattern, a central medallion pattern, a compartment layout and a one-sided pattern. The motifs on Persian rugs indicate the specific regions where they were produced.
Genuine Persian Rugs:
One of the biggest concerns many people have is whether a given Persian rug is genuine. To determine if a Persian rug is vintage, you should look at its label and patterns, as well as the knots used to make the rug.
In some cases, where you buy a Persian rug is almost as important as the rug you buy.
