A Short History Of Antique Persian Rugs


 
Business
While, here in the UK, there are certainly many admirers of the aesthetic of Antique Persian Rugs, there is not always much thought given by many buyers to such pieces’ rich heritage and wider cultural associations.

Indeed, the Persian rug will always be inextricably bound with the fascinating history of what is now Iran. For more than 2,500 years, hand-woven Persian rugs have been central to Iranian culture and society, celebrated for their quality and beauty.

While it is rugs made during the Safavid dynasty of 1499 to 1722 that have long been regarded as the most prestigious, antique Persian rugs of any era continue to command great admiration. This has been the case even amid such considerable change down the generations as the introduction of machination and synthetic dyes.

So, where do these remarkable rugs come from?

It is thought that carpet weaving was introduced in the Persian Empire during the reign of Cyrus the Great in 529 BC. In those days, carpets would be made in villages for personal use and would bear designs and weavings identifiable with a particular village or tribe.

It is only during the Safavid dynasty that Persian rugs are regarded as having reached their peak in terms of both artistic design and quality. This can be attributed to the creation during the reigns of Shah Tahmasp and Shah Abbas of a weaving industry geared towards large-scale artistic and commercial enterprise involving the most skilled weavers in highly organised workshops.

Persian rugs approached their true pinnacle with the establishment of royal workshops for the creation of the most intricately designed carpets, using silk and being decorated with gold or silver thread. Trade was also established with Europe, which came to realise the remarkable quality of these rugs with their highly distinctive and difficult-to-execute curvilinear designs.

Play your part in preserving this astounding tradition

Since the Afghan invasion that brought an end to the Safavid dynasty in 1722, the tradition of Persian carpet weaving has continued, with trade flourishing thanks in no small part to the admiration that western homeowners have for this incomparable art.

Every time a Briton invests in an antique Persian rug for their own abode, they are helping to perpetuate their presence in homes far beyond Iran. Why not join them in doing so, by purchasing from our own extensive selection of antique Persian rugs here at Sharafi & Co today?

Don’t trust any other supplier of Persian carpets in London

Sharafi & Co is located on Chandos Road in London and is open to visitors by appointment. However, while the Persian carpets that you will see at our own site are beautiful, our services aren’t restricted to the mere supply of a finite selection of Persian carpets and rugs. That’s because we are also renowned for such services as antique rug restoration and cleaning.

Buying Persian carpets in London from our store – whether online or offline – makes a great amount of sense. Not only are such carpets frequently a good match to a wide range of home decor styles as we have blogged about previously, but their often careworn appearance is adored by those that like their home carpets to exude character and charm. They can be surprisingly affordable, too.

Order your next Persian rug online from Sharafi & Co right now, and you can also take advantage of free delivery to the UK mainland within three days.
