I have added these pages to my website to show you some of the common designs in Persian rugs.
Among the most sought after shapes in Persian rugs are the round pieces and in this page I like to show you how they are made and give you some examples of the type of designs commonly found in round Persian carpets
As you can see in the examples of some of our round Persian carpets from the past and present, round Persian rugs typically feature a medallion, but the overall design can vary greatly with each rug. The two reasons why many retailers will typically not offer too many round rugs is that they are harder to find than ordinary Persian rugs and tend to be made of a high end quality, which most retailers no longer deal in. Most of the high end round rugs are made in Tabriz and I am fortunate to have the direct family contact that allow me to purchase these rare pieces. Some rugs, like the metal and Mahi rugs, are in fact so extremely rare that other retailers will often buy them from me and then turn around and sell them for much more to their own clients. Round rugs typically come in sizes ranging from 3' (1m) to 10' (3m), but the most common size is the 6' (2m) size due to the popularity of that size. Once you go beyond that large size, the selection becomes much more scarce and the prices tend to go through the roof.
