This Afghan Belouch from Oakham Oriental Rugs has a wondrous design. It uses various shapes and colours to create a rug which is like a piece of fine art.

The majority of Persian carpets designs are based on floral motifs with occasional figurative designs, both human and animal, as well as a few simple, geometric ones, much like the rug we have here.

About these rugs:

These rugs and carpets vary enormously in size and quality from small prayer rugs to carpets fit for a palace!

The common material for both rugs and carpets is wool, usually with a cotton weft and warp. The finest (and most expensive!) are pieces made with silk.

Most of the designs have religious or social symbolism. The colours also have significance but vary from region to region.

Generally the designs are based on what the weavers see around them in their everyday life; birds, insects, trees, flowers etc.

Persian rugs and carpets are extremely hard wearing and should last between 50 and 100 years, or more, depending on how much footfall they receive.
