largest hand-woven Persian rug
in the world is 133 meters long
and almost 48 meters wide
The Persian carpet is said to date
back 2,500 years and the sector
remains a big export earner and
employer, with foreign sales of
$635 million in 2005, most of it
hand-woven, according to the
state Persian Carpet Company
The carpets are made of wool,
silk or cotton, or a combination
of the three. It can take weavers
months or even years to make a
large, top-quality carpet with
intricate floral and other designs.
Using natural dyes derived from
plants, the workers are
traditionally women.









History Directions
Persian rugs are very cultural
and they helped plenty with the
economy. Carpet weaving, to form the
rugs (carpets) "was believed to be
introduced by Cyrus the Great during
his reign of the Persian Empire in 529
B.C." The designs and weavings were
made for personal use in the villages.
Persian rugs became very
popular during the Gold Age. "Toward
the end of the 19th century, carpet
weaving and trade flourished once
again. Through trading via Istanbul,
Americans and Europeans took an
interest in Persian rugs and even
established carpet businesses for rugs
destined to the West."
The rugs are super famous for
being hand- woven, old, and their
designs. The designs of the Persian
rugs are really cool and they are all
rather similar. There are sometimes
250 colors at once found in a Persian
rug.
