Textile Art: Persian Rugs
Woven in village workshops, these ornate rugs reflect the history of Persian culture and art. For centuries, collectors and decorators have marveled at the variety of their intricate designs. Whether floral or geometric, each rug pattern retains a sense of elegance and refinement. Yet the hand-knotted wool insists on humble origins. These carpets carry as much utilitarian as artistic value, accenting any home with their rich tradition.
