Rug weaving arrived in India in the 16th Century and was introduced by the Persian empire. Almost all Indian oriental rugs are imitations of famous Persian designs. The Persian government in place during the Safavid Dynasty sent master weavers from Persia to India, to oversee the training of the Indian weavers. Today they produce some beautiful oriental rugs such as the Fine Mahi-Tabriz with it's beautiful intricate weave, finished with luxurious silk inlays. Or the Fine Indo-Heriz with it's geometric design and bold pattern; a beautiful addition to any room. These are just two examples of our stunning range of Indian oriental rugs available at Quality Oriental Rugs of Plymouth.
Like it's neighbour India, rug weaving in Pakistan can track it's origins back to the Persian government of the 16th Century. Although they share the same beginning, Pakistan rugs are distinct in their own right today. With few colours used and a preference for using designs from Afghanistan and Caucasus Bokhara. The beautiful Pakistan Bokhara is a jewel in the oriental rug crown. With fine wool used to give an appearance close to silk and available in a wide range of colours and sizes, the Bokhara can enhance any room. The more rustic looking Pakistan Karagayee with it's bold geometric design can really make a statement in any room. Pakistan is the fourth largest oriental rug producer in the world and one of their many oriental rugs could be just the piece to complete your room.
China is now the biggest exporter of oriental rugs in the world. Silk rugs have been made in china for over 4000 years. But wool oriental rugs from China date back to the 13th Century. Wool as a crafting material was looked down upon by the easy availability of silk to their master weavers. Today however, China produces some beautiful wool oriental rugs to go with the beautiful silk rugs. The Chinese Superwash with it's luxurious deep wool pile and hand carved designs is a compliment to any space. The Chinese Savonnerie rugs based on the original 16th Century French designs infuse delicate colours, floral pattern with intricate finish to produce a beautiful Chinese oriental rug which will enhance any room.
