traditional persian rugsOriental and Persian traditional rugs of today are woven to suit an array of settings and budgets.  Not all rugs sold today are hand woven.  Technological progress made a huge variety of machine made rugs available at a fraction of the cost of handmade carpets.  Power loomed rugs are more hard wearing and can be still made unique by producing them to your dimensions and requirements.  They come in a vast variety of colours and the detail of design can rival those of hand woved rugs.  Another invaluable advantage of machine made rugs is that they make finding matching pieces incredibly easy – rugs often come with matching runners or matching circles.  Traditional rugs nowadays enhance commercial decor as well as residential settings and can often be seen in hotels, exclusive bars and offices, creating an atmosphere of luxury and sophistication.

History of Traditional Rugs

They say a wealthy Italian merchant, called Marco Polo saw traditional oriental rugs when he travelled to Turkey and Asia in 13th century. He was fascinated by the intricacy and variety of designs and colours on offer and brought many of them back with him to Europe. Like so many Middle Eastern accessories and furnishings, Persian, Turkish, Afghan rugs found perfect settings in European palaces and courts. Europeans loved the fact that each rug was unique and had a story or meaning behind its exquisite pattern.

Owning a traditional oriental rug became a symbol of luxury, prestige and an indication of wealth of the owner. They became and still remain a part of the high end fashion and an incredibly good investment. Time does not depreciate good rugs, instead, it adds value and turns them into pieces that are passed on from generation to generation.

Traditional Rug Designs

traditional rugsA very broad range of styles and designs can be described as traditional rugs. Some are oriental, some European and some look more formal than the others. Most traditional rugs can be included into one of the following design categories:

Aubusson and Savonnerrie Rugs – feature exquisite floral patterns that were hand woven in tapestries as well as rugs. Originating in 17th & 18th century France these rugs are distinctly European in their style.

Afghan Rugs – have become very popular over the last ten years. Afghan rugs feature informal geometric patterns, straight lines and rustic colours. Excellently suited for modern homes looking to add sophistication but without the traditional floral feel of Persian rugs.

Persian Rugs –the oldest of traditional rugs, intricate and full of detail, Persian designs tell a story. Persian patterns and motifs have not changed for years and to this day remain popular and sought after. Perfect for more traditional decors these elaborate rugs are quite often as exquisite as pieces of art.
