Persian rugs are usually named for their area of origination, with many villages having their own distinct weaving techniques and materials. The palettes for each Persian rug are indicative of their creator, with locally sourced vegetation and natural substances being used to create the colours for the loom. City rugs will often be created using a vertical loom as the weaver is operating from a fixed location, whereas nomadic rugs are crafted on a more portable, horizontal loom - and in part this will influence the designs and materials used in the creation of any rugs and carpets. We’ll be happy to elaborate on the differences between any of our Persian rugs if you call and speak to one of our experts - and we can also offer tips and advice on choosing Persian rugs for your home.
