Persian Carpet production was at its peak under the rule of the Safavid dynasty; it is sometimes referred to as the Golden Era of Persian Carpet-making. They were no more regarded as a functional piece of craftsmanship. These Safavid rugs became an important contributor to their trade and economy. The initial use of arabesque and curving patterns in the Safavid carpets became their signature style in no time.This collection from The Carpet Cellar is unique for its color choices and pattern intensity. To provide a more contemporary look and feel, the original patterns have been altered and more pastel hues have been used.
