North west Persia, perched at the intersection of nations and cultures the Caucasus, the Caspian, the Persian Empire, South Asia has for its entire history been a place of creative ferment. The land includes parts of present-day Iran, Azerbaijan, and Armenia, and among the people who have called its rugged mountains home are the Kazakhs, the Khazars, the Kurds, and the Mughals. [stratfor]
European investment beginning in the 19th century sent rug production in north west Persia skyrocketing, and today most rugs date to this high period, mostly to the late 1800s and early 1900s. The majority of workshops that arose in the wake of international demand were not urban, but rural, not major centers.
Today, North West Persian carpets remain extremely popular, particularly in America, and particularly among buyers looking for durable, traditional, boldly-colored carpets for the home. North West carpets are known for their large, typically room-sized scale, their deep classic reds and blues, luxurious thick pile, and beautifully executed traditional Persian design.
Please visit us on line at www.rugsinnyc.com or call us at (212)486-2227 and (203)866-8200 for a preview of our vast collection of one of a kind carpets and rugs dating form early 17th century to mid 20th century.
