Romanian rugs and carpets

Post war production of Romanian rugs and carpets increased with the construction of large workshops. These rugs and carpets were constructed with a cotton warp and weft with a robust wool pile. The Persian Herati designs closely resembled Tabriz and Bidjar rugs and carpets, but used a softer colour pallet of beige and gold's with soft blues, pinks and greens. these softer colours were favoured by the western interior designers, and coupled with a cheaper price tag than the equivalent Persian rug or carpet they proved very popular. Romanian rug and carpet production came to an abrupt end soon after the execution of Nicolae Ceausescu, Romania's last communist leader on the 25th December 1989.
