A typical Persian carpet
Shah Abbasi, the king of Iran, walked through his workshop in Isfahan in the early 17th century and gave orders to his workers. In these workshops, the technical skills and creativity of the weavers and designers rose to a high level. It led to what is now known as a typical Persian carpet: filled with long, curved flowery lines and lotus flower edges that converge in a perfectly symmetrical formation.

Change of the carpet designs
For centuries, travelers, politicians and, more recently, the Western world brought changes to these Persian carpets. The patterns, designs, colors and, weaving methods have changed. As a result, the Persian carpet changes as Abbasi envisioned it in 1600. Many people view these changes as a loss and wonder if the art form can survive.

Modern rugs
Knottedynasty.info embraces these changes, just as the industry changed in Abbasi’s time. They believe that through our carpets the old traditions are harmoniously interwoven with contemporary designs. The modern Persian carpet has only just appeared in the world.
