Woven in village workshops, these ornate rugs reveal the histories of Persian, Asian and European cultures. For centuries, collectors and decorators alike have marveled at the variety of their intricate designs. Whether floral or geometric, each rug pattern retains a sense of elegance and refinement. Yet the hand-knotted or needle-pointed wool insists on humble origins. These carpets carry as much utilitarian as artistic value, accentuating any home with their rich tradition.
