Thank you!
The Persian carpet is an essential part of Persian art and culture. Carpet-weaving is undoubtedly one of the most distinguished manifestations of Persian culture and art, and dates back to ancient Persia.

Iran Esfahan Persian rugs3

  1. 1. Esfahan Persian rugs http://www.authorstream.com/Presentation/michaelasanda-1350812-persian-rugs3/
  2. 8. Over the years many different design elements and motifs have been used in Persian rugs. Some have had special symbolic significance attributed to them. The mystique of Persian rugs owes a lot to the tales and fables that have been built up around the different design elements. Even though designs, motifs, and colors have little or no particular significance today, there are traditional interpretations associated with them
  3. 11. One of the most common themes in Persian rugs is Floral. The image of a lush garden is one that is deeply rooted in both the religious and cultural heritage of the Persian design. In a region of the world where water is a precious commodity it is perhaps not surprising that the garden, with an abundance of flora and fauna, is the Muslim symbol of paradise
  4. 15. Religious and political turmoils have had significant influences on the design and symbols of the Persian rugs. Symbols with deep religious meaning for one group or sect may have a completely different meaning for another. A human or animal figure was rarely woven into a rug made by Sunnite Moslems; they were strict in their interpretation of Koran law forbidding the use of figures that represent living creatures. By contrast, the Shiite Moslems freely used figures of humans and animals woven in the prayer rugs used in the mosques.
  5. 19. The country produces about five million square meters of carpets annually—80 percent of which are sold in international markets. In recent times Iranian carpets have come under fierce competition from other countries producing reproductions of the original Iranian designs as well as cheaper substitutes Iran is also the maker of the largest handmade carpet in history, measuring 60,546 square feet (5,624.9 square meter).
