Antique Khorassan Rugs : The region of Khorassan in northeastern Persia has been famed for fine antique rugs going back to Timurid times in the late middle ages. In the later nineteenth and twentieth centuries Khorassan became a center for the production of high quality room-sized carpets, although many of these are sometimes known by more specific designations such as Mashad or Doroksh. The range of designs is extensive, from allover to medallion formats in the classical tradition. The palette is varied as well, sometimes using deep, rich tones. But many antique Khorassan rugs from Persia have a softer, more decorative coloration. Whatever the design or color, however, Khorassan rugs maintain a high standard of drawing and weaving technique, making them durable despite their soft lustrous wool. Antique Khorassan rugs are available in a selection of beautifully varied styles. The exquisite antique Persian rugs from Khorassan are the product of a cultural and artistic assimilation between Arabian residents, Kurdish weavers, Turkomans and Persians. Their richly detailed carpets traditionally feature animals, birds, people and Tree of Life motifs that are drawn in an opulent manner. Regional designs include chic rugs with stark, monochromatic fields, exuberant curvilinear arabesques and angular tribal-influenced patterns. Many verdant hunting rugs that depict animated animals and huntsmen frozen in time are also produced in the region. The antique Khorassan carpets represent the lush, fluid style associated with the eastern region of Persia. They incorporate vivid jewel tones, chic neutrals and luxurious monochromatic backgrounds. In some cases, these chic backdrops are covered with lavish Chintz-style florals that depict verdant forest scenes. These treasured carpets are built on the ideal combination of elegance and perfection. The opulent style of Khorassan rugs is all-encompassing yet original and delightfully distinctive. This rug is Part of Bern Heimer Collection - Circa 1800 or older

The Story Behind the Persian Carpet

The Persian carpet is an essential part of Persian art and culture. Carpet-weaving is undoubtedly one of the most distinguished manifestations of Persian culture and art. Iran is also the world's largest producer and exporter of handmade carpets, producing three quarters of the world's total output. The art of carpet weaving existed in Iran in ancient times, according to evidence such as the 2500-year-old Pazyryk carpet, dating back to 500 B.C., during the Achaemenid period. Wool is the most common material for carpets but cotton is frequently used for the foundation of city and workshop carpets. There is a wide variety in types of wool used for weaving.
