Iran has been the cradle of art and carpets for 2,500 years. The world’s oldest carpet, which is now kept in the Armitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia, belongs to Iran and is called pazirik. The pazirik carpet is a full-scale painting of the history of culture, art, enduring age and… It is woven with a textured style belonging to our land and opens a window to the hidden artistic history of the land.
Dear Iran, with its unique beauty and special architecture, the flag bearer is the art of carpet weaving, inspired by these pristine landscapes in introducing the styles of handmade carpet weaving, as well as introducing the rich Iranian culture of practice. In Iranian handmade carpets, portraits have more history than in other categories. The beauty of handmade carpets can be hidden by inappropriate use of a frame whose color and style do not correspond to the role of handmade carpets. So care should also be taken when choosing a frame.
Unlike a carpet board, where the strength of the knot is lowered due to the harmonious texture of each row, the location of each knot and its resistance to pressure are examined in handmade carpets. Due to the type of handmade carpet, the style of execution of the knots will be changeable, which is generally used in our dear country Iran from two Persian knots and Turkish knots, but in parts of the southern and western provinces where Il Bakhtiari and Il Qashqai live, their specific style will be implemented.
