To trace the history of Antique carpets is to follow a path of cultural growth in one of the greatest civilizations the world has ever known. The element of luxury with which an Oriental carpet is associated today provides a marked contrast with its humble beginning among the nomadic tribes. Then it was an article of necessity to protect the tribes from the bitterly cold winters of the country. Although cotton was used for the warp and weft of the carpet, wool became the basic weaving material for carpets. This material, as well as silk, are still used today to weave authentic Persian carpets. A key feature in making the carpets is the bright colors used to form the intricate designs and patterns.
