  • Covor din Muzeul Covorului Persan Located in Tehran , beside Laleh Park , and founded in 1976, the Carpet Museum of Iran exhibits a variety of Persian carpets from all over Iran , dating from 18th century to present.

  • carpet -weaving is undoubtedly one of the most distinguished manifestations of Iranian culture and art, dating back to the Bronze Age, but as the materials used in carpets including wool and cotton, decay into dust during the course of time, archaeologists couldn't make any special discovery during the archaeological excavations. What have remained for us from the early ages as evidence of carpet-weaving are nothing more than a few pieces of worn-out rugs. Such fragments do not help very much in recognizing the carpet-weaving characteristics of pre-Seljuk period (13th and 14th centuries AD). Among the oldest pieces discovered are those found in Eastern Turkestan, dating back to the third to fifth centuries AD, and also some of the hand-weavings of the Seljuks of Asia Minor on exhibit in Ala’edin Mosque in Konya and Ashrafoghlu Mosque in Beyshehir, Turkey. These pieces attracted the attention of researchers earlier this century, and now they are kept in the Museum of Turkish and Islamic Art in Istanbul and the Mowlana Museum in Konya.

  • In 1976, it was suggested that an Iranian carpet museum be founded. Therefore some of the qualified experts on carpet set off on a trip to several cities and countries to collect different kinds of valuable carpets. After a while some carpets were collected. This procedure assumed even greater importance after 1979. Now there are many valuable carpets on display in Iran Carpet Museum to preserve the cultural heritage of Iran. Building of the museum with beautiful architecture and white ornaments, which associate it with a carpet loom, is located on a beautiful scene beside Park of Laleh. The exhibition hall of museum covers 3400 square meters (~10200 square feet), containing two halls used to display different kinds of kilims and handmade rugs. The ground floor hall is devoted fairs and the one upstairs to temporary exhibition of kilim and rugs. One of the oldest and most important carpets, available in this museum, is a carpet belonging to safavid era, called "Sangeshku". There are also seven animal carpets, "Sheikh Safieddin Ardebili" carpet, garden carpets and tapis Polonaise or Polish carpets, which are some of the precious carpets available in this museum.
  • Usually about 200 items of these carpets have been on display, being the masterpieces of Persian carpets woven at the main centers of carpet weaving like Kashan, Kerman, Isfahan, Tabriz, Khorasan, Kurdistan, ... Carpet, known as Polish carpet was made in Isfahan, 17th century, to fill the order of a Polish Prince. This carpet was transferred to Poland at the time. Materials of these carpets are silk fibers, as well as natural dyes woven together with gold and silver threads. As many as 300 carpets of this kind had been Identified throughout the world, so far of which seven carpets have been brought and returned to Iran. There is an exhibition hall in museum that shows specialized films in the field of carpet weaving and designing kilim motifs. Library of museum contains 7000 books, which are available to researchers and those interested in art. It should be mentioned that there is a collection of the most precious books, publications and pieces of research about Persian Carpet in library, which is very valuable.
  • In order to preserve the art of kilim and rug weaving, the museum has founded a number of classes to teach carpet weaving, design of carpet motifs and repair and darning of the damaged rug and kilims. At the end of these courses, a valid certificate is awarded to students. There is also a public repair shop that repairs people's precious carpets. This shop is founded by the demand of collectors and owners of valuable carpets. There is a tea-shop at the corner of the building of museum, which reminds the old and traditional Iranian coffee-shops and receives the guests and people, who are interested in art and old Iranian traditions.
