History of handwoven Rugs

Ancient textiles and handmade rugs have been made for over 2000 years. Over the centuries, several epics, ancient writings and miniature paintings allude to the handmade rugs of the time, emphasizing their beauty. Homer’s writings and the legend of the great Baharestan (famous garden rugs of the ancient Persian Sassanids) provide verbal evidence of the existence of rugs from this period.

The rich history of handwoven rugs dates back at least 2,500 years.

The discovery in 1949 by Russian archaeologists of the oldest surviving pile of his rug in the world was decisive for researchers and rug enthusiasts alike, as authentic samples from antiquity provided valuable information. It was a moment. This elegant rug was named Pazyryk after the place where it was found in the Altai Mountains. The intricate design and exquisite craftsmanship of this beautiful rug suggest a long history, and thanks to carbon testing, it has been dated to 500 BC. date.

The history of rugs is closely linked to the history of human habitation. The first handmade rugs arose out of people’s basic needs for warmth, beds, shrouds for the dead, and bags to carry their belongings, especially during the nomadic era when tribes moved from one place to another.

It is believed that a simple, functional rug can create a protected area from sand, wind and rain. Because of this property of the first rugs , early versions of rugs production can be identified.

Is very difficult. The artistic and decorative aspects of rug-making emerged in later centuries. Evidence shows that rugs soon became objects people could imbue with spiritual elements. I started incorporating patterns that reflected my emotional state. As a result, each handmade rug has its own spirit. It is projected that as the quality and design of rugs improved, they must have acquired increasing economic value for weavers.

Bespoke craft

However, until more people turned to sedentary lifestyles and gained the comforts of a more stable lifestyle, textile craft was largely personal and private. Appeared and saw the “sale of rugs”. In the days of kings and palaces, handwoven rugs were objects of fame. Skilled craftsmen were brought into the palace to create bespoke and unique rugs for the king.

Over time, the rug trade network expanded beyond every corner of Asia into western markets. Increased commercial demand has led each tribe to develop distinctive elements in their products to make them easily recognizable.They wanted their designs to be exclusive to their tribe.

Visit our Persian rugs blog to learn more about the different patterns and designs that originate from Persian tribes and cities. As technology and trade advanced, more sophisticated and decorative rugs and area rugs became popular. Some of these were made of silk, which is more delicate in high-traffic areas, so people hung them on their walls like very precious paintings. Today this precious art is known all over the world and is an important part of interior design.
