Here is our guide for buying Persian rugs: Background: 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 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 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 these 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 Style Rugs: One of the biggest concerns many people have is whether a given Persian rug is genuine. To determine if a 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. You should invest some time in finding a dealer you trust and one that will thoroughly explain the options are available to you. Rug Source has been helping homeowners, businesses and designers purchase Persian rugs for more than 10 years and we will be happy to help you, too.

Bakhtiari rugs get their name from the Bakhtiari tribespeople of the Zagros Mountains. A strong, courageous group known for annually trekking over snow-capped mountains, the Bakhtiari traditionally produced geometric designs in their rugs but, over time, were influenced by floral carpets of Persia. This led to the innovative styles found today. Bakhtiari rugs are made of durable wool and feature inspiring, complex designs.
Shape and Design:
Many Bakhtiari rugs feature central medallions and bold colors. They are best known for their intricate imagery, which incorporates latticework, bell-shaped components, flowers and highly romantic themes. Each one typically takes up to six years to complete, representing a labor of time as well as artistry. Find them in various colors, from reds to blues to beiges.
