Oversized Rugs Facts

Oversized Rugs

Throughout history, large carpet-weaving workshops were attached to palaces or government offices. As a matter of fact, states were constantly weaving carpets for new palaces, new mosques, and gifts to other countries' palaces, etc. Among the known ones were Seljuk, Mamluk, Safavi, Mugal, and Ottoman workshops. Those workshops did not have any cost concerns.

At the end of the 19th century, workshops producing carpets for the European and American markets were established in the northwestern regions of Iran, first in Tabriz, then in Heriz by reducing the cost and quality. (more)
