If you’re looking for a patch of beauty you can add to your home design, a round Persian rug is one of your musts. Round Persian rugs not just blend well with the accent of your home, they also add warmth and safety between you and the ever-changing conditions on the ground.
Since the ancient times, the Persian carpet is one of the most sought-after items on earth because of their distinguished designs – not just ordinary designs but designs with great expression of Persian culture and art. Now that smaller carpets (or area rugs) have become more popular because they are easier to move and clean, they also have become widely used as beautiful additions to home designs and an added effective floor guard.
Back in ancient Persia (now modern Iran), carpet-weaving has always been part of their culture and art. In those days, the carpet, as a precious item, was even used as a delightful gift for royalties in many kingdoms. When it comes to ancient items, carpet is undoubtedly one of items that made the Persians very popular even to this day.

It was believed that this ancient tradition of carpet weaving started as early as 500 B.C. during the first Persian empire as documented in the Chinese texts. Today, an estimated 1.2 million carpet weavers in Iran are working daily and exporting their finished products regularly to over a hundred countries around the world.
The hand-woven carpets from Iran occupy an amazing 30 percent of the world’s market. This ancient tradition continues to thrive despite stiff competition from their machine woven counterparts which offer lower priced Persian rugs and carpets.
