According to the research of Iranian scientists, the carpet weaving technology in Iran has a history of at least 2000 years. Only because carpets are mostly made of silk, cotton, wool and other materials, it is not easy to preserve for a long time, so the existing carpet treasures have a history of only a few hundred years. The pattern of Persian carpet is woven after printing and dyeing with dyes extracted from natural plants and minerals.
After many years, it is still colorful. For example, the famous Persian blue and Persian red do not fade after hundreds of years. Iranians regard carpets as a family heirloom.
Local friends told reporters: "for Iranians, precious carpets are more precious than gold and diamonds." even rich people use carpets as value preservation products like famous paintings and antiques. Carpet has gradually evolved into an art form because it has been integrated into the ancient Persian civilization.
Now many paintings, furniture and fashion decoration have been integrated into the imprint of carpet. Persian carpets are collected as treasures in many palaces, famous buildings, luxury houses and art galleries and museums around the world.
In recent years, inflation in Iran has been quite serious, and carpet prices have soared all the way. The price of a medium-quality small carpet has reached seven or eight hundred dollars. As for better silk carpets, they are often thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars, which makes many tourists stop.
