Persian Carpets – Part 1

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, and dates back to ancient Persia. In modern times Persia has been known as Iran. In 2008, exports of hand-woven carpets totalled $420 million from Iran. Approx 1.2 million weavers in Iran are producing carpets for domestic markets and international export. One of these carpets would look good in any home or bachelor’s pad, but be prepared to spend a few bucks if you want one of them, they’re quite pricey. Although these would be nice if you are into interior decorating.

Guess i’ll go and page through the classifieds and see if i can find a second hand one for a cheaper price.
